    Key Features

    • 2.3 - 2.7 GHz frequency range
    • Integrates a high power switch, two LNA stages, a 1-bit DSA, pin diode driver circuits, and dc converter
    • Ideal for TDD systems with an isolator
    • Only requires a 5 V supply with 3.3 V logic Ctrl.
    • Max RF Input power: 52 W Pavg (8 dB PAR)
    • 33 or 24 dB gain (Rx high and low gain mode)
    • 1.2 dB noise figure (Rx high gain mode)
    • +33 dBm OIP3 (Rx mode)
    • 0.65 dB Insertion Loss (Tx mode)
    • Compact package size, 8x8 mm

    The Qorvo QPC9314 is a highly integrated front-end module targeted for TDD macro or picocell base stations. The LNA switch module integrates RF functional blocks such as a pin-diode based high power switch capable of handling up to 52 W with an LTE signal (8 dB PAR) along with two LNA stages, and a 1-bit DSA to provide a high and low gain mode. Further integration is also implemented where the pin diode driver and dc-dc converter circuits are implemented inside the module to enable only the need for an external 5 V power supply. The control voltage for the switch and gain control mode is with 3.3 V logic.

    The QPC9314 can be utilized across the 2.3 - 2.7 GHz range to provide 1.2 dB noise figure for operation in the receive mode and 0.5 dB insertion loss in the transmit mode. The LNAs utilize Qorvo’s high performance E-pHEMT process while the switch allows for power levels up to 360 W peak power to be routed to an external load termination.

    The QPC9314 is packaged in a RoHS-compliant, compact 8x8 mm surface-mount leadless package. The switch LNA module is targeted for wireless infrastructure applications configured for TDD-based architectures.
