    Qorvo's QPA1724 is a packaged high power MMIC amplifier, Ku-K band, fabricated on Qorvo's production 0.15 um GaN on SiC process (QGaN15).  QPA1724 is targeted for 17.3 – 21.2 GHz Satcom band.  It provides 20 W of saturated output power with 16 dB of large signal gain while achieving 27% power-added efficiency.  

    To simplify system integration, the QPA1724 is fully matched to 50 ohms with DC grounded I/O ports for optimum ESD performance. Also, there are on-chip blocking capacitors following the DC grounds on the input and output ports.

    The QPA1724 is ideal for supporting communications and radar applications in both commercial and military markets.

    The QPA1724 is 100% DC and RF tested to ensure compliance to electrical specifications.

    Lead-free and RoHS compliant
