    Qorvo's RFPA5522 is a three-stage power amplifier (PA) designed for 802.11a/n/ac applications. The integrated input and output 50 ohm match greatly reduces the layout area, bill of materials and manufacturability cost in the customer application. The RFPA5522 is manufactured on an advanced InGaP heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) process and is capable of achieving linear powers up to 23dBm with an EVM <1.8% while maintaining excellent power added efficiency. The device is provided in a 4.0mm x 4.0mm x 0.9mm laminate package that meets or exceeds the power requirements of IEEE802.11a/n/ac WiFi RF systems.
