RFMW announced design and sales support for a dual-band GaN MMIC amplifier from Qorvo. The QPA0004 power amplifier enables next generation radar systems with reconfigurable RF output delivering 9 W of Psat RF power in  S-Band (3.1 to 3.5 GHz) and 8 W in X-Band (9 to 11 GHz). Large signal gain is 21 dB (S-Band) and 19.0 dB (X-Band) from the 7 x 4 mm SMT device operating from a 26 volt bias. Test results show that a dual, S/X-Band implementation of the QPA0004 has better performance than individual S- and X-Band MMICs combined with a SPST switch, a significant advantage in SWaP-C design considerations.
