High Linearity 0.5 Watt Small Cell Power Amplifier

    Key Features

    • Fully integrated, 3 stage power amplifier
    • Internally matched 50 Ω input and output
    • - 48.5 dBc ACLR at power output +27dBm average
    • 35.8 dB gain
    • 14.6% PAE at +27dBm output power
    • 455 mA quiescent current
    • On-chip bias and temperature compensation

    The QPA9424 is a high-linearity three-stage power amplifier in a low-cost surface-mount package with on-chip bias control and temperature compensation circuits, suitable for small cell base sstation applications.

    The QPA9424 provides 35.8 dB Gain and +27 dBm linear power over 2300 - 2400 MHz frequency range covering band 30 and band 40. This amplifier is able to achieve - 48.5 dBc ACLR at +27 dBm output power with 20 MHz LTE signal.

     The QPA9424 integrates three high performance amplifier stages onto a module to allow for a compact system design and requires very few external components for operation. The amplifier is bias adjustable allowing the amplifier's power consumtion to be optimized. The QPA9424 is in a 7 x 7 mm surface mount package.
