Pasternack expands line of solid-state high-power amplifiers with GaN, GaAs and LDMOS models covering UHF, VHF, L, S and C bands

Pasternack Enterprises Inc of Irvine, CA, USA (which makes both passive and active RF, microwave and millimeter-wave products) has introduced a new portfolio of solid-state high-power amplifiers (SSPAs). The coaxial packaged RF amplifiers cover UHF, VHF, L, S and C frequency bands and are widely employed in applications such as electronic warfare (EW), instrumentation, military communications, radar, SatCom, telecom, data links and medical devices.

The firm's latest release of RF amplifiers includes 22 models with output power levels greater than 10W that cover broadband frequencies from 150kHz to 7500MHz. Solid-state 50Ω hybrid microwave integrated circuit (MIC) designs use gallium nitride (GaN), gallium arsenide (GaAs) or LDMOS silicon transistor technology that offers high dynamic range and allows gain levels ranging from 40dB to 60dB. The typical gain variation of the amplifiers is ±1.5dB. Some models have a P1dB (output power at 1dB compression point) ranging from +10W to +50W, while some devices have a Psat (saturated output power) ranging from +40dBm to +50dBm.  

All of the high-power amplifiers in the product family have single voltage supplies that are internally regulated and the circuits are enclosed in environmentally sealed metal packages. The rugged coaxial packages withstand environmental conditions like humidity, altitude, shock and vibration, and each module is designed with stainless-steel SMA female connectors. Each SSPA is classified as EAR99.

The new high-power solid state RF amplifiers are available in-stock and ready to ship now.
