    Qorvo's QPA1027 is a packaged high-power, S-band amplifier fabricated on Qorvo's production 0.25 um GaN on SiC High Voltage process (QGaN25HV). Covering 2.8 – 3.5 GHz, the QPA1027 provides 60 W of saturated output power and 22 dB of large-signal gain while achieving 55% power-added efficiency.

    The QPA1027 is packaged in a plastic overmold QFN with a Cu paddle offering easy handling with good thermal properties. As a result, the QPA1027 has bias flexibility allowing the user to vary the voltage to achieve optimum system performance while maintaining high reliability.

    The QPA1027 is matched to 50 ohms with integrated DC blocking caps on both I/O ports. With the high performance, good thermal characteristics and ease of handling and system integration, the QPA1027 is ideal for radar and satellite communication systems.

    Lead-free and RoHS compliant.
