  • New Product – Mouser Now Stocking Qorvo QPA1724 Ku/K-Band GaN Power Amp Optimised for Military and Commercial SATCOM

Mouser is now stocking the QPA1724 Ku/K-Band gallium nitride (GaN) power amplifier (PA) from Qorvo®. Delivering twice the power of similar PAs, and offering excellent wideband linear power, gain and power added efficiency, the QPA1724 is a market leader in RF performance for both commercial and defence markets. This product is a high-power MIMIC amplifier targeted for the 17.3 to 21.2 GHz SATCOM (Ku-K) band and delivers a saturated output power of 20 W (~43 dBm) with a small signal gain of 25 dB and power-added efficiency (PAE) of 27%. Fabricated using Qorvo’s production 0.15 μm GaN-on-SiC process (QGaN15), the device includes on-chip blocking capacitors following the DC grounds on the input and output ports. It is ideal for commercial and military radar and satellite communication (SATCOM) applications, including low-earth-orbit constellations and wide bandwidth, multi-carrier high-data throughput solutions.

  • New Product – Mouser Now Shipping UnitedSiC (Now Qorvo) 750V UJ4C/SC SiC FETs in D2PAK-7L Package for Industrial Applications

Mouser is now stocking the UJ4C/SC FETs from UnitedSiC (now Qorvo®) in an industry-standard, D2PAK-7L surface-mount package. The UJ4C/SC series devices are 750 V silicon carbide field-effect transistors (SiC FETs) that capitalise on the D2PAK-7L package option to deliver low switching loss, increased efficiency at higher speeds, and improved system power density. The devices leverage a unique cascode SiC FET technology in which a normally on SiC JFET is co-packaged with a silicon MOSFET to produce a normally off SiC FET. The FETs reduce inductance from compact internal connection loops, which, along with the included Kelvin source connection, results in low switching loss, enabling higher frequency operation and improved system power density. The FETs are optimised for applications such as onboard chargers, soft-switched DC/DC converters, battery charging, and IT/server power supplies.
