Qorvo QPA1724 Ku/K-Band GaN Power Amplifier

Wednesday, 07 September, 2022 | Supplied by: Mouser Electronics


Mouser Electronics, Inc. now stocks the QPA1724 Ku/K-Band gallium nitride (GaN) power amplifier (PA) from Qorvo. Designed to deliver twice the power of similar PAs and offering wideband linear power, gain and power added efficiency, the power amplifier delivers RF performance for commercial and defence markets.

The power amplifier is a high-power MIMIC amplifier targeted for the 17.3 to 21.2 GHz SATCOM (Ku-K) band. The power amplifier delivers a saturated output power of 20 W (~43 dBm) with a small signal gain of 25 dB and power-added efficiency (PAE) of 27%. Fabricated using Qorvo’s production 0.15 μm GaN-on-SiC process (QGaN15), the device includes on-chip blocking capacitors following the DC grounds on the input and output ports. The device is also fully matched to 50Ω with DC grounded I/O ports for ESD performance that simplifies system integration.

The device is suitable for commercial and military radar and satellite communication (SATCOM) applications, including low-earth-orbit constellations and wide bandwidth, multi-carrier high-data throughput solutions. The QPA1724 is available in a 7.5 x 1.6 mm QFN package and is also DC and RF tested for compliance with electrical specifications. For evaluation and development, the QPA1724EVB evaluation board is available to order from Mouser.
