Front End Modules
Today’s advanced avionics and IFF applications demand the best performance. Available now from Richardson Electronics, Qorvo recently introduced the QPD1025L, an 1800 W (P 3dB ) discrete GaN on SiC HEMT that operates from 0.96 to 1.215 GHz. This industry-leading product offers input pre-match within the package resulting in ease of external board match and saving critical board space. Additional key features are:
- Linear gain: 22.5 dB
- Typical PAE(3dB):2%
- Operating voltage: 65 V
- CW and Pulse capable

- 4.0 – 6.0 GHz operational bandwidth
- LNA with integrated bypass mode
- Ability to turn LNA and bypass mode OFF
- Ultra low noise figure, 1.3dB at 5.5 GHz
- 19dB gain at 5.5 GHz
- 32dBm OIP3 at 5.5 GH
The QPL9098 is a high-linearity, ultra-low noise gain block amplifier with a bypass mode functionality integrated in the product. At 5.5 GHz, the amplifier typically provides 19 dB gain, +32 dBm OIP3, and 1.3 dB noise figure while drawing 68 mA current from a +4.2 V supply.
The QPL9098 is internally matched using a high performance E-pHEMT process and only requires four external components for operation from a single positive supply: an external RF choke and blocking/bypass capacitors. This low noise amplifier contains an internal active bias to maintain high performance over temperature.
The QPL9098 is optimized for the 4.0 - 6.0 GHz frequency band and is targeted for wireless infrastructure. The QPL9098 is packaged in a 2 x 2 mm DFN.
- Frequency Range: 28 – 38 GHz
- PSAT (PIN = 13 dBm): >26 dBm
- IM3 ( POUT/Tone = 20 dBm): -20 dBc
- Small Signal Gain: >23 dB
- Bias: CW, VD = +20 V, IDQ = 64 mA, VG = -2.5 V typ.
- Die Dimensions: 1.65 x 0.67 x 0.05 mm
