Qorvo Sampling 39 GHz Dual-Channel GaN FEM for 5G Arrays

Qorvo® is sampling what the company says is the industry’s first GaN on SiC front-end module (FEM) for the 39 GHz 5G band. The QPF4005 FEM integrates two identical, multi-function GaN MMICs into a footprint optimized for the phased array element spacing at 39 GHz. The FEM, which supports up to 256-QAM OFDM modulation, was designed for 5G base station architectures that use a phased array for beamforming.
