Qorvo's QPA0012D is a broadband MMIC low noise distributed amplifier with AGC via the control gate. The LNA in die form operates over the 2 to 22 GHz bandwidth. The QPA0012D is ideally suited for EW and communications systems where small size and low power consumption are needed. The broadband device delivers 11 dB of flat gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +18 dBm and a noise figure of 3 dB. The QPA0012D is a 50 Ohm matched design incorporating on chip dc bias choke and blocking capacitors. The QPA0012D amplifier is the perfect alternative to costly hybrid amplifiers.
