Qorvo's QPA1014 is a high-power, S-band MMIC amplifier fabricated on Qorvo's 0.25um GaN on SiC production process (QGaN25). Covering 2.7 – 3.7 GHz, the QPA1014 provides 40 W of saturated output power with 24 dB large signal gain and 48% power-added efficiency.
The QPA1014 is packaged in a plastic overmold QFN with a pure Cu paddle offering easy handling with good thermal properties. As a result, the QPA1014 has bias flexibility allowing the user to vary the voltage to achieve optimum system performance while maintaining high reliability.
The QPA1014 is matched to 50 ohms with integrated DC blocking caps on both I/O ports. With the high performance, good thermal characteristics and ease of handling and system integration, the QPA1014 is ideal for use in both commercial and military radar systems.
Lead-free and RoHS compliant.
Evaluation boards are available upon request.
