Broadband QUBiC4 MMICs for
all 400-2700 MHz applications
Produced in NXP’s proven QUBiC4 Si BiCMOS process, these MMICs bring improved
thermal performance and added-value features to all 400-2700 MHz applications − at
a lower cost than GaAs versions.

These MMICs are exceptinally well-suited for use in MoCA
power amplifiers for set-top boxes or PC dongles. They
make it possible to tailor the gain or P1dB for specific
platform requirements, and the gain flatness between
475-625 MHz and 1.15-1.5 GHz is unrivalled. The devices
operate at low power consumption and offer a fast shutdown function to save as much power as possible.

ESD protection and active biasing, along with the SOT89
package option, simplifies design and minimizes the number
of external components.
These MMICs are also very well suited to eMetering
applications in the 900-2400 MHz ISM band. High
integration and single-supply operation mean that the

NXP’s medium power MMICs are a perfect fit for drivers in
radar line-ups upto S-Band frequencies with excellent gain
and efficiency. These MMICs are also a great fit for military
communication with their wideband performance from HF
tuned for any band between VHF and 2.7 GHz. Unbeatable
thermal performance (30 °C/W) improves overall quality and
reliability.
