"S" Series Solid-State Amplifiers "S" Series Solid-State Amplifiers

These new amplifier models employ a new design that delivers more than twice the power of older models. The new, more efficient design consumes less power, and incorporates both USB and Ethernet interfaces in addition to the standard IEEE and RS-232 interfaces.

Wideband 7.5-18 GHz, 300 W TWT Amplifier With Gain Linearization Wideband 7.5-18 GHz, 300 W TWT Amplifier With Gain Linearization
The dB-4410 TWTA (Traveling Wave Tube Amplifier) uses gain linearization to amplify complex waveforms with multiple pulse patterns and bursts, modulation schemes, and counter-jamming capabilities. This makes it ideal for use in radar, ECM, and communication systems. This amplifier features a modular construction, High-Reliability, a wide bandwidth, a very low phase noise, MIL-STD-461E and MIL-STD 704 compliance, and qualification for military airborne environments.
PAM-1840 Preamplifier -- 18 GHz - 40 GHz PAM-1840 Preamplifier -- 18 GHz - 40 GHz
18 GHz - 40 GHz PAM-1840 Preamplifier from A.H. Systems
1700 - 2200 MHz High Gain and Linearity 1700 - 2200 MHz High Gain and Linearity
The SKY73023-11 is a fully integrated diversity mixer that includes Local Oscillator (LO) drivers, an LO switch, high linearity mixers, and large dynamic range Intermediate Frequency (IF) amplifiers. Low loss RF baluns have also been included to reduce design complications and lower system cost. The SKY73023-11 features an input IP3 of +25.7 dBm and a Noise Figure (NF) of 9.9 dB, making the device an ideal solution for high dynamic range systems such as 2G/3G base station receivers. The LO switch provides more than 45 dB of isolation between LO inputs and supports the switching time required for GSM/EDGE base stations. The SKY73023-11 is manufactured using a robust silicon BiCMOS process and has been designed for optimum long-term reliability. The SKY73023-11 diversity downconversion mixer is provided in a compact, 36-pin 6 x 6 mm Multi-Chip Module (MCM).
Full Waveguide Q-Band Low Noise Amplifier: AFB-Q20LN-0X Full Waveguide Q-Band Low Noise Amplifier: AFB-Q20LN-0X

This LNA covers the 33 to 45 GHz frequency range and is ideal for telecommunication, test instrumentation, and transceiver subassembly applications. It features broadband performance across the entire Q-band, ultra-low noise with gain choice, variable I/O interface options, a single DC power supply/internal regulated sequential biasing, and a compact size and light weight.

Five-Channel Amplifier Five-Channel Amplifier

Teledyne Microwave Solutions designed the Five Channel Amplifier specifically for a custom space application. Each independent channel used dedicated RF Input/Output and DC bias connections. Teledyne Microwave Solutions tailored each channel's RF performance differently to meet the application requirements.

RF AMPLIFIERS FEATURED DATASHEETS

  • Datasheet: Impedance Matching Pad - Model 57Z-3G And 75Z-3G

    One of JFW's most popular lines of RF test accessories is its series of impedance matching pads. JFW can match almost any transmission line while preserving signal integrity with low VSWR.

  • Datasheet: 792 To 824 MHz, Rapid Deployment Tower Top Amplifier

    Designed to enhance the operation of the temporary base station, the Rapid Deployment TTA will increase the receive sensitivity, often in excess of 10 dB, and can make up for the imbalance between mobile and handheld users. Often in emergency situations, any increase in “talk back” range can make the difference in mission critical communications

  • Datasheet: 792 To 824 MHz, Tower Top Amplifier System - Model 429-83H-01-M

    The new compact Tower-Top Amplifier (TTA) system is a high performance, quadrature-coupled low noise amplifier (LNA) designed to increase the performance of a Base Transceiver Station (BTS) while ensuring reliable communications for critical Public Safety applications. This increase in sensitivity can make up for the imbalance between mobile and handheld users in critical systems.
