    Qorvo’s QPA0506 is a MMIC power amplifier fabricated using Qorvo’s QGaN25 0.25 um GaN on SiC production process. Covering 5 – 6 GHz, the QPA0506 typically provides 36 dBm of saturated output power and 18 dB of large-signal gain while achieving 53 % power added efficiency.

    The QPA0506 can support a range of bias voltages to optimize power and PAE to system requirements. The QPA0506 is matched to 50 ohms with a DC blocked input and a DC grounded output.

    The QPA0506 is packaged in a plastic overmolded 4x4 mm package. The QPA0506 is 100% DC and RF tested to ensure compliance to electrical specifications.

    Lead free and RoHS compliant.
