some words here on the TQP7M9103. I got my driver board today, which claimed 16dB Gain and 29dBm P1dB. From the datasheet, it was obvious that this cannot be given over the full frequency range as the Qorvo device needs a bit of matching at the input and output.
First measurements: 6dB gain and ca. 20 dBm P1dB. I suspect therefore that this could be improved with some snowflaking (Faehnchenschieben) and as this is low enough power to be safe, I'll go for it
The output inductance (L1) for the bias supply also seemed a bit large to me (too low SRF) so I exchanged it to a part with known parameters (22nH, 0603, 4.6GHz SRF) but this improved matters only little. Will try some snowflaking over the weekend.
do you have new conclusions about that device?
