Broadband RF Amplifiers
These wideband amplifiers feature highly efficient GaAs PHEMT semiconductor technology with 50 Ohm hybrid MIC circuits that are enclosed in environmentally sealed metal packages with nickel or gold plating.
Fairview Microwave Inc.'s broadband RF amplifiers operating in octave bands between 0.5 and 40GHz with noise figures ranging from 2.5 to 6 dB across the entire frequency range consists of 18 part numbers to choose from that are commonly employed in a wide spectrum of military and commercial applications including wireless communications, telecom infrastructure, radar, electronic warfare, sensors, test instrumentation, microwave backhaul and many others. The RF amplifiers have gain levels ranging from 20 dB to 48 dB, gain flatness as low as±0.5 dB and power output ratings (P1dB) from 20 mW to 2 W. DC voltage supply ranges from +8.5 to +15Vdc while bias current ranges from 125 mA to 2500 mA. These broadband amplifiers utilize either stainless steel SMA or 2.92mm connectors and some of the modules are hermetically sealed with field replaceable connectors. The 2.92mm connectorized model operates to 40 GHz.
