Mouser stocks 55W GaN power amp for RF satellite comms

Qorvo’s 55W GaN power amplifier, the QPA1314T, is now in stock at distributor, Mouser. The amplifier is based on Qorvo’s 0.15 micro GaN-on-SiC (gallium nitride-on-silicon carbide) process (QGaN15) and mounted to a high thermal conductivity tab.

The QPA1314T is a monolithic microwave IC (MMIC) amplifier intended for commercial and defence RF communication applications.

The Qorvo QPA1314T power amplifier has an extended frequency range of 12.75 to 15.35GHz and achieves 55W of saturated output power in its standard range of 13.75 to 14.5GHz. 

The power amplifier integrates DC blocking capacitors on both the input and output ports and is fully matched to 50 Ohms to simplify system integration. The power amplifier’s RF ports are also DC coupled to ground to achieve optimal ESD performance, said Mouser.

The QPA1314T is lead-free, halogen-free, RoHS compliant, and 100% DC and RF tested on-wafer to ensure compliance to electrical specifications. It is optimised for RF satellite and radar communications and datalinks in commercial and military markets. Mouser also offers the QPA1314DEVB evaluation board.

Mouser claimed that it offers the world’s widest selection of the newest semiconductors and electronic components which are in stock and ready to ship. The products from the distributor are fully traceable from each of its manufacturer partners.
