    Qorvo's TQL9092 is a flat-gain, high-linearity, ultra-low noise amplifier in a small 2 x 2 mm surface-mount package. The LNA provides a gain flatness of 2 dB (peak-to-peak) over a wide bandwidth from 1.5 to 3.6 GHz. At 2.6 GHz, the amplifier typically provides 22.6 dB gain, +39.5 dBm OIP3 at a 65 mA bias setting, and 0.6 dB noise figure. The LNA can be biased from a single positive supply ranging from 3.3 to 5 volts. The device is housed in a green/RoHS-compliant industry-standard 2x2 mm package.

    The TQL9092 is internally matched using a high performance E-pHEMT process and only requires five external components for operation from a single positive supply: an external RF choke and blocking/bypass capacitors and a bias resistor going to pin 1. This LNA integrates a shut-down biasing capability to allow for operation in TDD applications.

    The TQL9092 is optimized for linear performance across the 1.5 to 4.2 GHz frequency band but can operate down to 600 MHz.

    X-Microwave Design System

    This product is available as an X-Microwave Block (X-MWblock) for evaluation.

    X-MWblocks are RF and microwave "drop-in" components that can be used individually for prototyping or in production assemblies. X-MWblocks are easy to test, integrate, align, and configure to 60 GHz and beyond. No messy sweat soldering or silver epoxy processes are required. X-MWblocks are highly characterized with S-parameter models and connect with a patented solder-less interconnect technology.
