    Qorvo’s QPL1000 is a packaged, high-performance, low noise amplifier fabricated on Qorvo’s production 0.25 um, GaN (Gen II) process. Covering 8 – 11 GHz frequency range, the QPL1000 provides 27 dB small signal gain and a low noise figure of 1.7 dB. Using GaN Gen II technology, it can withstand up to 5W of CW RF incident power, delivering a saturation power of 15 dBm with a low IM3 levels of −24 dBc (at Pout= +6 dBm / tone).

    Packaged in a small 4 mm x 4 mm plastic overmold QFN, the QPL1000 is matched to 50 ohms with integrated DC blocking caps on both I/O ports for easy handling and simple system integration.

    The QPL1000 high performance and compact size make it ideal for satellite and point to point communication systems.
