Pasternack Enterprises, Inc., a supplier of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, has released a new family of coaxial X-band high gain power amplifiers.
The new X-band power amplifiers are suited for high linearity applications with frequencies ranging from 8 to 12 GHz andare typically used as driver amplifiers or high power output amplifiers in a wide variety of commercial, industrial and military applications including telecom infrastructure, test instrumentation, fixed microwave backhaul, radar systems, communication systems, satellite communications and commercial avionics.
Available in 1-watt and 4-watt designs depending on configuration, the new amplifiers offer 30 to 41 dB small signal gain over a temperature range of -30°C and +70°C and are packaged inside hermetically-sealed metal enclosures. The gain flatness of these amplifiers ranges from 0.50 dB to 1.0 dB and the IP3 output performs up to 44 dBm.
“The rapid growth of our active components offering signifies a new company strategy to further expand our reach in the RF industry,” Michael Rachlin, active RF/microwave products manager at Pasternack, said. “Our new X-band power amplifiers represent the first installment toward the execution of this strategic direction.”
