High-Linearity, Low-Noise Amplifiers

High-Linearity, Low-Noise Amplifiers

The Ciao Wireless High Linearity LNAs eclipse the industry accepted standard "10-dB separation rule" ("headroom") for Output ICP3 separation above the 1-dB Compression Point. Ciao Wireless' Ultra-High Linearity LNAs feature an extended headroom of typically 16 to 17 dB between the 1-dB Compression Point and Output 3rd Order ICP. Typical Output 3rd Order ICP values range up to +42dBm for Octave Band Models with an Output P1-dB Point of +22 to +25 dBm.
35 Watts CW, 30 to 512 MHz, T/R Switching, Filters, Automatic Band Switching Booster Amplifier - AR-35

35 Watts CW, 30 to 512 MHz, T/R Switching, Filters, Automatic Band Switching Booster Amplifier - AR-35

The Model AR-35 is a portable, lightweight, waterproof, fully automatic band-switching RF booster amplifier for multi-band VHF/UHF Tactical Radio equipment employing legacy, proprietary and emerging waveforms. The amplifier covers the frequency band of 30-512 MHz using six high speed auto switching filters to assure harmonic suppression and is SINCGARS, HAVE QUICK, and ECCM compatible. The amplifier includes Voltage Spike Suppression, RF sensing, T/R switching, Automatic Level Control (ALC), six automatically switched harmonic filter bands (DAMA capable), and protection against antenna mismatch and over-temperature. Protection against accidental polarity reversal is also provided. Low current on standby due to “sleep mode” greatly extends battery life in field use. The amplifier comprises a rugged submersible 2-piece aluminum case. Optional Broadband Antenna, cables and tactical vest pouch are available.
Variable Gain GPS Line Amplifier - VGLCDLA30RPDC

Variable Gain GPS Line Amplifier - VGLCDLA30RPDC

The VGLCDLA30RPDC is a variable gain GPS line amplifier featuring a range of 0 to 30 dB with LCD display and push button controls in 1 dB increments. The frequency response covers L1/L2/L5 and Galileo/GLONASS bands. The push button control along with the LCD display allows users to make precise adjustments quickly and view the output power at any given time to make testing more efficient.
