    Qorvo's QPA2308 is a MMIC power amplifier fabricated on Qorvo’s production 0.25 um GaN on SiC process (QGaN25). Operating from 5.0 - 6.0 GHz, the QPA2308 produces greater than 60 W of saturated output power and  greater than 21 dB of large-signal gain while achieving greater than 47% power-added efficiency.

    The QPA2308 is offered in a 10-lead 0.6 x 0.6 in bolt-down package.  Assembled with a pure-copper base, coupled with its high efficiency, the QPA2308 minimizes the strain on the system-level cooling requirements, further reducing system operating costs. The QPA2308's performance makes it well suited for both commercial and military applications.

    Both RF ports are fully matched to 50 ohms with integrated DC blocking capacitors thereby simplifying system integration.

    Lead-free and RoHS compliant.
