New series of amplifiers suited to multiple broadband applications

11-11-2022 | Fairview Microwave | Power

Fairview Microwave has extended its line of high-power amplifiers developed for multiple market applications in VHF, UHF, L, S, C, X and Ku bands.

This innovative line of broadband high-power amplifiers comprises mainly GaN and some LDMOS semiconductor designs with detailed datasheets. GaN performance benefits are the most sought-after for broadband applications and display high efficiency in a smaller package size.

These high-power amplifiers offer saturated output power levels ranging from 10W to 200W. Amplifier designs are provided in compact coaxial packages incorporating broadband frequencies from 1.5MHz to 18GHz.

The company's high-power amplifiers are offered in rugged, defence-grade coaxial packages with operational temperatures from -40C to +85C. The highly efficient Class AB designs offer 50-Ohm input, and output matched ports, built-in control and protection circuits, and D-sub connectors for DC bias, command control, and monitoring functions.

"Designers will find these broadband high-power amplifiers extremely useful for test and measurement applications, as well as transmitting RF signals for radar, defence radio, and telecommunications systems," said Tim Galla, senior product manager.
