“This new high-power transistor will save customers time and money by eliminating the difficult exercise of combining amplifiers to create multi-kilowatt solutions. The QPD1025 has significantly better drain efficiency and beats LDMOS by nearly 15 percentage points of efficiency, which is significant in IFF and avionics applications.” — Roger Hall, general manager of Qorvo's High Power Solutions
“Qorvo’s QPD1025 transistor represents a true game changer in this segment. It offers comparable pulsed power and duty cycle performance to silicon LDMOS and silicon bipolar devices, but with a marked improvement in efficiency. Qorvo further achieves this high power and efficiency without introducing exotic materials such as diamond into the process flow for thermal management, ensuring a solution that is cost effective.” — Asif Anwar, executive director of Strategy Analytics’ Strategic Technologies Practice
