    The Qorvo RFPA5218 is a three-stage power amplifier (PA) designed for Wi-Fi. The compact form factor and integrated matching minimizes layout area in the application.

    Performance is focused on optimizing for power consumption while maintaining the highest linear output power and leading edge throughput that leads to greater ranges.

    The design significantly minimizes external component needs leading to a simplified board implementation and more consistent performance at a system level over a variety of conditions.

    The RFPA5218 integrates a 2 GHz power amplifier (PA), regulator and a power detector for improved accuracy.
