Mouser’s Inventory Strengthened by Qorvo’s Latest Wide Bandgap Power Amplifier & Advanced Motor Controller/DriverJanuary 28, 2020 by EE Power Editorial
The 100-W QPA3069 power amplifier is predominantly focused on defense and avionics applications.
Mouser Electronics, Inc., continues to push forward with new product introduction (NPI) activity in the analog space, by adding further Qorvo devices to its expansive portfolio.
The 100-W QPA3069 power amplifier is predominantly focused on defense and avionics applications (such as radar). This high power density IC covers the 2.7-GHz to 3.5-GHz radiofrequency (RF) band and offers a 25-dB power gain along with a 53% power-added efficiency (PAE). Fabricated using Qorvo's 0.25-µm gallium nitride on the silicon carbide (GaN-on-SiC) semiconductor process, this high-performance S-band amplifier has greater than 58-dBm of saturated output power and is subject to only minimal power losses. It is supplied in a compact 7.0-mm × 7.0-mm × 0.85mm package, with each of its two RF ports incorporating a DC blocking capacitor. A minus 40 to 85 degree Celsius operational temperature range is supported.

Targeted at situations where elevated levels of performance are required, Qorvo's PAC5556 is a highly-integrated, feature-rich motor controller/driver system-on-chip (SoC) that is suitable for both brush-less direct current (BLDC) and permanent-magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) designs. This 600-V rated device comprises a flash-based 32-bit microcontroller unit with an Arm® Cortex®-M4F processing core (capable of running at 150-MHz), plus 128-kB of embedded flash and 32-kB of SRAM memory resource. High-side and low-side gate drivers, as well as signal conditioning (including a 2.5-MSps analog-to-digital converter) and power management elements are also encompassed. Key applications include air conditioning systems, domestic appliances, water pumps, etc. The PAC5556 is housed in a compact 52-pin QFN package.
