With a deep legacy of space product development, Qorvo components offer the rugged dependability needed for the challenging conditions of space and, most importantly, communications back to Earth. More than 250,000 Qorvo components have launched aboard orbital payloads, such as communications and navigation satellites, including programs that support broadband data, telecommunications and global positioning services.
Qorvo has a rich history and strong track record of supplying highly reliable active and passive devices for space and aerospace programs such as satellite and planetary missions. Whether we qualify one of our existing devices or develop a custom solution, Qorvo has the knowledge, experience and resolve to explore the far reaches of RF technology. Our blend of technologies, world-class products and leading-edge capabilities offer customers a choice between component, bundled and integrated solutions for supporting the most challenging of space applications.
Qorvo supports MIL-STD-883 and performs 100 percent element electrical results, burn-in, 1,000-hour life test and wafer-level lot acceptance testing for space qualification. Most Qorvo products – including power amplifiers, low noise amplifiers (LNAs), gain blocks, switches, attenuators, phase shifters, voltage controlled oscillators (VCOs) — may be considered for qualification.
