NuPower Xtender™ Linear Bidirectional S-Band Power Amplifier: 2.2 – 2.5 GHz, 6W, 6.9 in3Source: NuWaves Engineering
This bidirectional power amplifier covers the 2.2 to 2.5 GHz frequency range and features GaN technology, adaptive pre-distortion techniques, and a 6.9 cubic inches overall size. It’s well suited for applications that require high reliability, and minimal SWaP (size, weight, power consumption).
The NW-LBSSPA-10W-2.2-2.5 power amplifier’s size and weight makes it ideal for integration into unmanned aircraft systems, unmanned ground vehicles, unmanned surface vehicles, test labs, broadband RF telemetry, software defined radios, and RF communications systems.
Each member of the NuPower XtenderTM series of bidirectional RF power amplifiers feature thermal protection, over-current protection, reverse/over-voltage protection, rugged aluminum enclosures, rapid transmit auto-detection and T/T mode switching or manual T/R lines, and more. Their small size eases mechanical integration and their low power consumption makes them particularly ideal for unmanned systems.
