mmWave, 5G Front End Module: QPF4001
RFMW announces design and sales support for high-performance, mmWave, 5G front end modules from Qorvo. The QPF4001 operates from 26 to 30 GHz with receive path (LNA+TR SW), designed to provide 17 dB of gain and a typical noise figure of 3.5 dB. The transmit path (PA+SW) provides 27 dB of small signal gain with high linearity of 35 dBc ACPR and low EVM of 3% at 23 dBm average output power Peak power is up to 1 W.
Targeting 28 GHz phased array 5G base stations and terminals, 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.
