    The QPM1002 is a Gallium Nitride MMIC front-end module (FEM) designed for X-Band radar applications within the 8.5 - 10.5 GHz range.  The MMIC combines a T/R switch, low-noise amplifier, and a power amplifier. The receive path offers 25 dB gain with low noise figure of 2.2 dB. The transmit path offers a small signal gain of 33 dB, it can deliver 3 W of saturated power with a PAE of 32%, with a 25 dB of large signal gain. The FEM is robust up to 2 W of input power into the ANT port eliminating the need for a limiter.

    The QPM1002 is fabricated on Qorvo's QGaN25 0.25um GaN-on-SiC process. It is a 5 x 5 mm QFN surface mount package with over-mold encapsulant, coupled with a proprietary die-attach process, allows the QPM1002 to perform well in a high temperature environment. Its compact size supports tight lattice spacing requirements needed for X-Band phased array radar applications.
