The QPB9320 from Qorvo is a front end module developed for TDD macro or picocell base stations that operate from 1.850 to 2.025 GHz. This FEM integrates RF functional blocks such as a pin-diode based high power switch that can handle up to 52 Watts with an LTE signal (8 dB PAR) along with two LNA stages. This Switch/LNA module has a pin diode driver and dc-dc converter circuits integrated into the module and thus requires a single 5 V supply. The control voltage for the switch and gain control mode is with 3.3 V logic.
The QPB9320 is available in a RoHS-compliant, 8 x 8 mm surface-mount leadless package. The switch LNA module is targeted for wireless infrastructure applications configured for TDD-based architectures.
