    Qorvo's QPA1003P is a wideband high power MMIC amplifier fabricated on Qorvo's production 0.15um GaN on SiC process (QGaN15). The QPA1003P operates from 1 – 8 GHz and typically provides 10 W saturated output power with power-added efficiency of 30% and large-signal gain of 25 dB. This combination of wideband performance provides the flexibility designers are looking for to improve system performance while reducing size and cost.

    The QPA1003P is matched to 50 ohm with integrated DC blocking capacitors on both RF I/O ports simplifying system integration. The wideband performance makes it ideally suited in support of test instrumentation and electronic warfare, as well as, supporting multiple radar and communication bands.

    Lead-free and RoHS compliant.

    Evaluation boards are available upon request.
