CPI’s Beverly Microwave Division presents the VSS3607 GaN solid state power amplifier (SSPAs) operating in the S-band (2.7 – 2.9 GHz). These high efficiency, high power, compact amplifiers are easy to maintain, and are designed for use in air surveillance radar applications.
This amplifier covers the 1 to 3 GHz frequency range while delivering 1 kW of broadband output power in a 5U, air-cooled chassis. Its performance and size make it an ideal solution for test and measurement, electronic warfare, and communications applications. More specifically, it’s designed for octave bandwidth high power CW, modulated, and pulse applications.
Millitech’s series AMP power amplifiers are designed to obtain high output power in the 18-110 GHz frequency range through the use of advanced PHEMT MMICs and transistors. These multiple MMIC amplifier chips can be combined or cascaded for applications requiring higher gain or greater output power than standard products.
The SKY66184-11 is a 2110 – 2170 MHz high-linearity lower amplifier designed for FDD 3G/4G LTE small cell base stations that operate within the 2100 to 2200 MHz frequency range. It is also useful for active distributed antenna systems, cellular repeaters, and driver amplifiers. The amplifier features fully matched input/output, high gain, and an active biasing circuitry that is integrated to compensate its performance over temperature, voltage, and process variation.
These GaN MMIC power amplifiers are ideal for applications involving test instrumentation, general communications, and general radar. Two models are featured below, a 25 Watt PA covering the 2-6 GHz frequency range, and an 8 Watt PA covering the 2-20 GHz frequency range.
Ophir RF’s 6010 broadband high power RF amplifier is ideal for NMR applications. It operates in the 20 to 1000 MHz frequency range and has a saturated output power of 125 Watts (min). It also has +52 dB (min) small signal gain, 50dB (min) blanking, <5uS blanking speed, -20 dBc (typ) harmonics @90 Watts, >-60 dBc (typ) @90 Watts, and much more. Additional specifications can be found on the available datasheet.
Skyworks introduces the new SKY85018-11 high-power Bluetooth® power amplifier solution designed specifically for mobile applications that target Wi-Fi enabled smartphones, tablets, and other portable devices. This highly integrated device is optimized for improving Bluetooth® connectivity ranges that are required for music streaming.
The new model 5163 from Ophir RF is a 50 Watt solid state broadband amplifier designed to cover the 0.8 to 4.2 GHz frequency range. This high power, compact amplifier features excellent 3rd order intercept point, high gain, and a wide dynamic range from its use of Class A/B linear power devices.
