HiQSDR MPPA medium power PA

The HiQSDR Medium Power PA with an output PEP of 8-10 Watts PEP can be directly plugged into the HiQSDR Preselector Board.

HiQSDR MPPA 8-10 Watts amplifier module


  • The HiQSDR MPPA is universally designed and can be used as separate driver for bigger amplifiers as well as a universal QRP PA.
  • The Board is designed, to have all signal traces on TOP of the PCB.
  • The Bottom of PCB is completely grounded and can be mounted directly to a heatsink or a heat spreader to dissipate the exess heat.
  • The HiQSDR MPPA is very flexible and operates from normal available 12..13.8 Volts power supply (needs current up to 2 Amps).
  • The high gain of the dual staged push-pull amplifier design has a gain of >36dB and allows input signals as low as 0dB to produce up to 10 Watts PEP.
  • The IP3 of the Amplifier is excellent: at 7.1MHz is the IP3 > -41dBc (!).
  • The MPPA is a broadband, class AB highly linear amplifer and allows operation from 1 MHz up to 62 MHz.
  • The input and output impedance is 50 Ohm.
  • Built-in attenuator allows adaption to driving power (standard attenuator is for use with HiQSDR)
  • The MPPA is save against shorts and open output for a limited time, but needs cooling.
  • The power supply is 12..13.8 Volt DC, max. 2 Amps.
  • In both push-pull stages, modern RF field-effect transitors from Mitsubishi are used, driver is 2x RD01MUS2 second stage is 2x RD07MVS1 types.

The MPPA is optimized by DL2EWN, thank you for your work, time and effort!
