KMW1040: RF Booster Amplifier

KMW1040: RF Booster Amplifier

The Model KMW1040 is a portable, lightweight, fully automatic band-switching RF booster amplifier for multi-band VHF/UHF Tactical Radio equipment employing legacy, proprietary and emerging waveforms
GaN MMIC Amplifiers/Transistors

GaN MMIC Amplifiers/Transistors

Northrop Grumman’s first three entries in their GaN MMIC Amplifiers/Transistors have been developed for defense and commercial ground satellite communications terminal markets and the commercial wireless infrastructure market. These GaN MMIC Amplifiers/Transistors are ideal for several applications including point-to-point radio, phased-array radar, Military SatCom, and point-to-multipoint communications, SATCOM terminals, and more. Links to datasheets of the amplifiers that make up this line can be found below.

792 To 824 MHz, Rapid Deployment Tower Top Amplifier

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
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.
KMW2025: RF Power Amplifier Module

KMW2025: RF Power Amplifier Module

The Model KMW2025 is an RF power amplifier module for OEM applications or integration into a user system. The module comprises a printed wiring assembly housed in a machined aluminum enclosure with connection to the DC power source via the 15-pin connector. Cooling requirements defined by the data provided below and protection of the output devices against output mismatch are the responsibility of the user. This amplifier module operates at 100 Watts, 30-512 MHz.
