    Qorvo's QPA1022 is a packaged, high performance power amplifier fabricated on Qorvo's production 0.15 um GaN on SiC process (QGaN15). Covering 8.5 - 11.0 GHz, the QPA1022 provides > 4 W of saturated output power and 24.5 dB of large-signal gain while achieving 45% power-added efficiency.

    Packaged in a small 4 x 4 mm plastic overmold QFN, the QPA1022 is matched to 50Ω with integrated DC blocking capacitors at RF output and DC grounded input port. It also has a built-in power detector for system RF power checking. With a compact dimension, it can support tight lattice spacing requirements for phased array radar applications. It is also an ideal component to support test instrumentation and commercial communication systems.
