Qorvo adds seven new high-performance GaN PAs

25 August 2021 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Qorvo has introduced seven new Spatium GaN solid-state power amplifier (SSPA) products to its standard product portfolio. Spatium SSPAs are an advanced new way to enable applications including commercial and defence radar, electronic warfare (EW) and satellite communication, among others. They are a preferred alternative to older, lower-performing and expensive-to-operate travelling wave tube (TWT) designs.

The Spatium family of SSPAs offers customers the performance, reliability and operational longevity needed for mission-critical applications. Qorvo claims that Spatium products are far superior to TWTs in both design and operation, enabling mission-critical systems that will be fully operational when customers need them most. An example of a Spatium-based application is the Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia, USA, which is setting new standards for ground-based radar exploration of space.

These seven new SSPA standard products are available for sampling to qualified customers and offer the specifications shown in the accompanying table.
