The QPM1002 is a GaN MMIC front-end module that operates from 8.5 to 10.5 GHz. The MMIC has a T/R switch, low-noise amplifier, and a power amplifier. The receive path provides a gain of 25 dB with a low noise figure of 2.2 dB. The transmit path provides a small signal gain of 33 dB, it can deliver 3 W of saturated power with a PAE of 32%, with a 25 dB of large signal gain. The FEM can handle up to 2 W of input power into the ANT port eliminating the need for a limiter.
It is available in a 5 x 5 mm QFN surface mount package with over-mold encapsulant, coupled with a proprietary die-attach process and is ideal for X-Band radar applications.
