FEATURED RF AMPLIFIER PRODUCTS

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, and HAVEQUICK compatible.

The QPA2211 from Qorvo is a GaN Power Amplifier, ideally suited to support satellite communications and 5G infrastructure. Operating from 27.5 to 31 GHz, it achieves 5 W linear power with lower than −25 dBc intermodulation distortion products and 24 dB small signal gain. 

Corry Micronics offers a new family of RF integrated assemblies designed to work across multiple frequencies in a variety of applications. These RF filter and amplifier modules feature several modulation types in a modular design structure.

The ADL8104 is a gallium arsenide (GaAs), monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (pHEMT), low noise, wideband, high linearity amplifier that operates from 0.4 GHz to 7.5 GHz. The ADL8104 is housed in an RoHS-compliant, 3 mm × 3 mm, 16-lead LFCSP.

The PAM-5K300 is a low frequency preamplifier designed to provide reliable, repeatable measurements in the 5 kHz to 300 MHz frequency range. This solution is an excellent choice for improving system dynamic range and can be used as a standard workhorse of any EMC test house for compliance testing.

The dB-4345 TWT Amplifier (TWTA) is designed to operate within the 2.0 – 6.0 GHz frequency range and provide up to 325 W CW output power for electronic countermeasure (ECM), electronic warfare (EW) simulation, and multi-band communication applications.

RF AMPLIFIERS FEATURED DATASHEETS

  • The CMPA1C1D080F is a balanced, 3-stage amplifier generating 90W of saturated output power with a 12.75 - 13.25 GHz operating frequency range that is ideal for satellite communication applications.

  • The QPL9504 is a flat gain, high-linearity, ultra low noise amplifier in a small 2 x 2 mm surface-mount package. At 5.5 GHz, the amplifier provides 0.7dB noise figure with 21.5 dB gain and +34 dBm OIP3 while drawing 55 mA bias current.

  • The VTA-6430A Series are 500W CW Coupled Cavity TWTs covering 27.5 - 31.0 GHz (Ka-Band) with 2 GHz instantaneous bandwidth, periodic-permanent-magnet focused, wave-guide input, waveguide output, conduction cooled. This high-efficiency CC TWT is designed for use in satellite communication amplifiers.

RF AMPLIFIERS FEATURED MULTIMEDIA

Join AR on July 8, 2021 for a full day virtual webinar event that covers the fundamentals of EMC testing. 

Communications and data processing systems are evolving at breakneck speed. TEMPEST test equipment must also undergo continuous improvement to keep pace with these technological changes. Join the webinar to learn about new capabilities that test five challenging signals.
