Wi-Fi LNA+BAW Receive Module

The QPL7210 provides a complete integrated receive solution in a single placement FEM for Wi-Fi 802.11a/n/ac systems. The full integration minimizes layout area in the application and greatly reduces the design complexity and the number of external components. It integrates a 2.4 GHz LNA with power, an LNA bypass, and high selectivity receive BAW filter […]

The Impact of the IoT on Society

by Cees Links, GM of Qorvo Wireless Connectivity BU, Qorvo I am often asked how the IoT will affect our lives. It’s a big question, but a good one. I sometimes want to reply with something like, “How will it not change our lives?” since that might be a shorter list. But instead, let’s look at […]

Ultra Low Noise 2-Stage Bypass LNA

The QPL9065 is a high-linearity, ultra low noise 2-stage gain block amplifier module with a bypass mode functionality integrated into the second stage in the product. It covers the 0.45 to 3.8 GHz frequency band and is targeted for wireless infrastructure. The QPL9065 is housed in a 3.5×3.5mm SMT package. QORVO (6)

Voltage Variable Attenuator

The TGL2767-SM is a packaged wideband voltage variable attenuator using the company’s production 0.15um GaAs pHEMT process (QPHT 15). Operating from 2 to 31 GHz, the unit offers >20 dB of attenuation range with <2 dB insertion loss in the reference state. The TGL2767-SM’s broadband performance allows it to be a single solution for a […]

X-band:  GaAs vs GaN Efficiency Tradeoffs

by Grant Wilcox, Qorvo As the war between GaN and GaAs rages on, GaN continues to win battles associated with increasing difficulty in SWaP-C (Size, Weight, Power, Cost) requirements. This can be seen across the frequency spectrum in both wideband and narrowband applications. As the power and frequencies increase, GaN really separates itself from the […]

Ultra Low Noise, Flat Gain LNA

The QPL9503 is a flat gain, high linearity, ultra low noise amplifier in a small 2x2mm surface mount package. The LNA provides a gain flatness of 2 dB (peak-to-peak) over a wide bandwidth from 3 to 6 GHz. At 5.5 GHz, the amplifier typically provides 21.6 dB gain, +35.5 dBm OIP3 at a 56mA bias […]

Balanced Amplifier Module

The QPA9805 is a balanced amplifier module with embedded hybrid couplers to convert to single ended input and output ports. The module has an enable pin to allow for shutting down of the amplifier. It requires minimal external components which are VCC choke inductors and decoupling caps. Frequency range is 600 to 1000 MHz. QORVO […]

Rapid Model-Based Evaluation Board Success for a 160W L-Band GaN PA 

by Rached Hajji and Kim Tran, Qorvo USA, Inc. & Larry Dunleavy and Laura Levesque, Modelithics, Inc. The demand for Power Amplifiers (PAs) continues to grow with the increase in industrial and military applications of wireless and microwave technologies.  Current PA designs must meet increasingly challenging performance goals in terms of efficiency, gain, linearity, power […]

Integrated Wi-Fi Front-End Module

The QPF7200 provides a complete integrated solution in a single placement front-end module (FEM) for Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n systems. It includes highly selective BAW filters achieving FCC bandedge and coexistence attenuation over operating conditions. Optimized for 5V operation. QORVO (13)
