Targets 28 GHz phased array 5G base stations and terminals
RFMW announces design and sales support for high-performance, mmWave, 5G front end modules from Qorvo. The QPF4001 is a multi-function Gallium Nitride MMIC front-end module that operates from 26 to 30 GHz. The compact 5 x 4 mm air-cavity laminate, surface mount package with embedded copper heat slug employs a low thermal resistance die attach process making the QPF4001 ideal for phased array applications with tight lattice spacing and extreme temperature requirements.
- Transmit path (PA+SW) provides 27 dB of small signal gain with high linearity of 35 dBc ACPR.
- Receive path (LNA+TR SW), designed to provide 17 dB of gain and a typical noise figure of 3.5 dB
- Low EVM of 3%
- 23 dBm average output power
- Peak power of up to 1 Watt
Fabricated on Qorvo’s 0.15um GaN on SiC process, the device combines a low noise high linearity LNA, a low insertion-loss high – isolation TR switch, and a high – gain high – efficiency multi-stage PA.
