6 to 18 GHz Solid State Power Amplifiers

6 to 18 GHz Solid State Power Amplifiers

MtronPTI recently released a line of broadband, solid-state, power amplifiers covering the 6 to 18 GHz range with up to 40 Watts power serving the needs of tactical communications, satellite terminals, electronic warfare, radar, point-to-point backhaul, medical, industrial, and scientific applications.


High-Power, Redundant  SSPA System: Outdoor PowerMAX™

High-Power, Redundant SSPA System: Outdoor PowerMAX™

This high-power solid-state power amplifier (SSPA) differentiates itself from other outdoor HPAs because it doesn’t require an equipment shelter – thus simplifying installation logistics and reducing overall deployment costs of the system. Because of its modular N+1 soft-fail, phase combined system, it automatically adjusts to maintain consistent output power without the need for mechanical switching, (even with the loss of an RF module) making it ideal for applications that require high levels of redundant power at the antenna.

Traveling Wave Tube Amplifiers (TWTAs)

Traveling Wave Tube Amplifiers (TWTAs)

dB Control’s traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs) cover the 1 to 50 GHz frequency range and are ideal for critical military applications in radar, electronic countermeasures (ECM), data links, communications, and instrumentation.

Instrumentation HPAs

Instrumentation HPAs

CPI offers a large line of instrumentation HPAs (high power amplifiers) EMC testing applications. They feature superior performance and reliability and are available in octave and multi-octave bandwidths from 1 to 95 GHz.

Phase and Amplitude Matching Amplifier: CA13-445L

Phase and Amplitude Matching Amplifier: CA13-445L

The CA13-445L by Ciao Wireless is a phase and amplitude matching amplifier that covers the 1.65 to 2.4 GHz frequency range. It utilizes SMA female connectors and features an input limiter to protect against 1-watt CW, 100 watts peak-pulsed, 1 µsec duration, 0.1% duty cycle.

0.03 GHz General Purpose Amplifier: AFB-DCKA25GP-01

0.03 GHz General Purpose Amplifier: AFB-DCKA25GP-01

This amplifier features ultra broadband amplification, a low noise to high power ratio, and a single DC power supply/internal regulated sequential biasing. It’s especially well suited for applications involving test instrumentation, EW systems, fiber optics, and military and space.
