High Power Amplifiers


The NuPower Xtender™ VU4GX02 from NuWaves is a small, broadband, high-performance RF embedded OEM amplifier designed specifically for extending the communication range of half-duplex transceivers with constant-envelope waveforms. It is able to generate 4 Watts of linear RF power across the V- and U-band frequencies from 225 to 512 MHz, as well as 10 Watts of RF transmit power.

The AMP2033LC from Exodus Advanced Communications is a solid state, high-power amplifier designed for use in broadband EMI/RFI, lab, communications, and EW applications operating in the 6.0 – 18.0 GHz frequency range. It is also suitable for CW, pulse, and all single channel modulation standards.

This GaAs three-state high power amplifier is ideal for use in commercial digital radios and wireless LANs. It operates in the 71 to 76 GHz frequency range, has a linear gain of 19dB (typ), a 28 dBm (typ) power saturation, 4 VDC @ 630 mA DC power, and more.

The APN319 from Northrop Grumman is a GaN power amplifier that operates from 47.2 to 51.4 GHz. It provides an output power of 7 W with a gain of 20 dB and Power Added Efficiency of 19%. This amplifier requires 24 V DC supply and consumes 200mA of current. It is fabricated using a GaN on SiC process and measures 2.8 x 1.4 mm (3.92 mm2). The amplifier can be used in 5G and SATCOM systems.

Qorvo offers the TGM2635-CP 100W GaN as an X-band, high power MMIC amplifier fabricated on Qorvo’s GaN on SiC Process. Its package is a 10-lead bolt-down with a cure Cu base for superior thermal management. Both RF ports allow for simple system integration, making the amplifier ideally suited for both military and commercial x-band radar systems and data links.

The OPHIREMC Model OPA101 is an audio power amplifier designed for conducted susceptibility testing within EMC standard Mil-Std-461, RTCA DO-160, and additional EMC specifications. Used in conjunction with the OPHIREMC Model OCT101 coupling transformer, this amplifier operates over the DC to 300 kHz frequency range and provides up to 200 W of output power.

Fairview Microwave presents the SLA-020-60-25-SMA high-gain limiting coaxial amplifier with an operating frequency range from 1 to 2 GHz. Designed specifically to protect receivers from excessive power and distortion, this model features an input power range of -40 to +10 dBm, a minimum limited output power of +19 dBm, and a high 60 dB gain with gain flatness of +/-2.5 dB.

The Model KAW2020M16 is a Class AB wideband RF power amplifier delivering in excess of 100 Watts into a 50-Ohm load over the frequency range of 220 MHz to 245 MHz. Power gain is a minimum of 50 dB minimum. The system features forward and reflected power indication on a front panel-mounted analog meter; over-drive protection; full VSWR protection, over-temperature protection, over-voltage, and over-current. System is CW rated with fast keying option less than 100nsec on/off time. The Model KAW2020M16 is a 19-inch rack-mount unit, 3.5 inches high and 20 inches deep. Construction is completely modular; all subassemblies are readily removable. The amplifier operates from 100-240 VAC, 47-63 Hz line.
