    Qorvo's QPA2628 is a packaged, high-performance, low noise amplifier fabricated on Qorvo's production 90nm pHEMT (QPHT09) process. Covering 22 – 31.5 GHz, the QPA2626 provides 23 dB small signal gain and P1dB of 19 dBm, while supporting a noise figure of 1.6 dB and IM3 levels of -54 dBc (at Pout=0 dBm/tone).

    Packaged in a small 4 mm x 4 mm plastic overmold QFN, the QPA2628 is matched to 50 ohms with integrated DC blocking caps on both I/O ports for easy handling and simple system integration.

    The QPA2628 high performance and ease of handling makes it ideal for satellite and point to point communication systems.

    Lead-free and RoHS compliant.

    Evaluation boards are available upon request.

    X-Microwave Design System

    This product is available as an X-Microwave Block (X-MWblock) for evaluation.

    X-MWblocks are RF and microwave "drop-in" components that can be used individually for prototyping or in production assemblies. X-MWblocks are easy to test, integrate, align, and configure to 60 GHz and beyond. No messy sweat soldering or silver epoxy processes are required. X-MWblocks are highly characterized with S-parameter models and connect with a patented solder-less interconnect technology.
