An integrated limiter/LNA providing robust, high performance over the 2–20GHz frequency range.
The QPM1000 is a high performance, 2 to 20 GHz multichip module (MCM) that combines a limiter and low noise amplifier (LNA) within a small surface-mount package. It addresses traditional and emerging military system requirements for the receive arm in a variety of transmit/receive (T/R) architectures. Not only does the QPM1000 pull from Qorvo’s portfolio of performance-leading MMICs, a mainstay of the defense and aerospace markets, it leverages Qorvo’s high volume and low-cost packaging technology, used in traditional consumer and commercial markets. The result is a compelling and affordable surface-mount limiter/LNA that optimizes performance and footprint.
