    The QPF4010 is a high frequency, high performance MMIC front-end module targeted for 5G - n258 at 26 GHz phased array base stations and terminals. It is fabricated on Qorvo's 90 nm pHEMT (QPHT09) production process. The device combines a low noise high linearity LNA, a low insertion-loss high-isolation TR switch, and a high-efficiency multi-stage PA.

    The QPF4010 operates from 24.25 GHz to 27.5 GHz range. The receive path (LNA + TR SW) is designed to provide 13.5 dB of gain and a typical noise figure of 4.0 dB. The transmit path (PA+SW) provides 17 dB of small signal gain and a saturated output power of 22.5 dBm. It can operate at an average power of 14 dBm with 4% of typical EVM at 64 QAM, 100MHz modulated signal.

    The QPF4010 is offered in a small 4x4 mm overmold QFN surface mount package, matched to 50 Ω and has integrated DC blocking capacitors on all RF ports allowing for simple system integration. The frequency coverage and operational flexibility allows it support satellite communication, point to point data links and 5G systems.
