Pasternack has launched a new line of bi-directional amplifiers to transmit high-quality signals while amplifying Rx signals with advanced LNA to deliver the highest possible data rates.

The company has added four new models to its current line of bi-directional amplifiers, making a total of six models now offered. This portfolio comprises of a comprehensive range covering popular VHF/UHF, L, S, C and broadband RF frequency bands that vary from 0.225MHz to 5.875MHz. These rugged, mil-grade designs are provided in compact, environmentally-sealed, SMA-connectorised packages and provide either quick-connect or D-SUB connectors for DC and control functions.

The designs offer sensitive receiver performance with 2.5dB noise figures. Some also include highly efficient GaN semiconductor technology. Transmit (Tx) output Psat levels range from 8W to 20W, boosting data links and transmitters. These models offer manual or auto-sensing transmit/receive (T/R) control with fast switching times of 1-2µsec.

“Pasternack’s new selection of bi-directional amplifiers offers higher frequency capability and GaN technology with higher efficiency, which is ideal for broadband RF telemetry, tactical communication and unmanned aerial vehicle applications,” said Tim Galla, product line manager.
