    Qorvo's QPA1013D is a broadband high power MMIC amplifier fabricated on Qorvo's production 0.15um GaN on SiC process (QGAN15). The QPA1013D operates from 6 -18GHz and provides more than 10W saturated output power with power-added efficiency >20% and large-signal gain >20 dB. This combination of wideband performance provides the flexibility designers are looking for to improve system performance while reducing size and cost.

    The QPA1013D is matched to 50 ohm with integrated DC blocking capacitors on both RF I/O ports simplifying system integration. The broadband performance makes it ideally suited in support of test instrumentation and electronic warfare, as well as, supporting multiple radar and communication bands.

    The QPA1013D is 100% DC and RF tested on-wafer to ensure compliance to electrical specifications.

    Lead-free and RoHS compliant.

    Evaluation boards are available upon request.
