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 […]

Wi-Fi Front End Module (FEM)

The QPF4538 is an integrated FEM designed for Wi-Fi 802.11a/n/ac systems. The compact form factor and integrated matching minimizes layout area in the application. It integrates a 5 GHz PA, SP2T switch, and bypassable LNA into a single device. Frequency range is 4900 to 5925 MHz. QORVO (27)

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 (16)

VFTT – Qorvo

Vijay Balakrishna , Senior Director of Research, Infrastructure and Defense, Qorvo MPD: Millimeter wave frequencies will be used for cellular communications for the first time in 5G. What challenges and opportunities does this present for the microwave industry? VB: Every time the bar is raised, there is an opportunity to develop technologies and grow our markets long […]

Wi-Fi Front End Module

The QPF4538 is an integrated front end module (FEM) designed for Wi-Fi 802.11a/n/ac systems. The compact form factor and integrated matching minimizes layout area in the application. Performance is focused on optimizing the PA for PoE applications by centering on 0.5W power consumption while maintaining the highest linear output power and leading edge throughput. Integrated […]

The Impact of the IoT Demystified

by Cees Links, GM of Qorvo Wireless Connectivity Business Unit The IoT (Internet of Things) is a modern-day buzzword with lofty expectations to have a profound impact on society. But what is it, how will we use it and what will that impact be? Is it exciting or will it be frightening? Will it be […]
