Wide band amplifier delivers cryogenic to +100 °C temperature performance
For all the models the gain is typically in the 26 to 28 dB region with guaranteed minimums of 22 to 25 dB and variation with frequency for some bands of better than ±0.75 dB. Noise figure at +25 °C and at 6 GHz is 3 dB and this reduces to around 0.5 dB at temperatures of 4 °K.
All the amplifiers deliver typically +13 dBm of output power at the 1 dB gain compression point while third order intercepts are up to +28 dBm and input/output VSWR is 2.0:1 / 2.3:1.
Housings for all the amplifiers are 31.5- x 27.5- x 10.0-mm in aluminium alloy with alochrom 1200 finish and input/output is via SMA female, stainless steel RF connectors.
The DC supply, which can be as low as 5 V, is applied via a filtercon and ground post and has a current level of just 150 mA.
The amplifiers are designed and manufactured in the UK with a wide range of applications in mind, both commercial and military.
