Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components™, is now stocking the QPA1724 Ku/K-Band gallium nitride (GaN) power amplifier (PA) from Qorvo®. Delivering twice the power of similar PAs, and offering excellent wideband linear power, gain and power added efficiency, the QPA1724 is a market leader in RF performance for both commercial and defense markets.

The Qorvo QPA1724, available from Mouser Electronics, is a high-power MIMIC amplifier targeted for the 17.3 to 21.2 GHz SATCOM (Ku-K) band. The QPA1724 delivers a saturated output power of 20 W (~43 dBm) with a small signal gain of 25 dB and power-added efficiency (PAE) of 27%. Fabricated using Qorvo’s production 0.15 μm GaN-on-SiC process (QGaN15), the device includes on-chip blocking capacitors following the DC grounds on the input and output ports. The QPA1724 PA is also fully matched to 50 ohms with DC grounded I/O ports for peak ESD performance to simplify system integration.

Ideally suited for commercial and military radar and satellite communication (SATCOM) applications, including low-earth-orbit constellations and wide bandwidth, multi-carrier high-data throughput solutions, the QPA1724 is available in a 7.5 mm × 6.0 mm × 1.6 mm QFN package and 100% DC and RF tested to ensure compliance with electrical specifications. For evaluation and development, the QPA1724EVB evaluation board is available to order from Mouser.
