Qorvo, a leading provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world introduced seven new Spatium GaN Solid State Power Amplifier (SSPA) products to its standard product portfolio. Spatium SSPAs are a revolutionary new way to enable applications including commercial and defense radar, electronic warfare (EW), and satellite communication, among others. Spatium SSPAs are a preferred alternative to older, lower performing, and expensive-to-operate traveling wave tube (TWT) designs.
Qorvo’s Spatium family of SSPAs offers customers the performance, reliability, and operational longevity needed for mission-critical applications. 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 Radio Telescope, which is setting new standards for ground-based radar exploration of space.
Roger Hall, general manager of Qorvo’s High-Performance Solutions (HPS) business, said, “Our Spatium products represent a revolution in solid-state power amplifier technology. Our products deliver unmatched and unprecedented performance and reliability. We now offer customers additional standard Spatium products to help upgrade existing commercial and defense systems.”
These seven new SSPA standard products are available for sampling to qualified customers and offer the following specifications:
Spatium Technology was originally developed by CAP Wireless, which was acquired by TriQuint in 2013, followed by the merger between RFMD and TriQuint to form Qorvo.
