Fairview launches family of LNA and high-power X-band amplifiers

Fairview Microwave Inc of Allen, TX, USA, which supplies on-demand microwave and RF components, has launched a new family of coaxial low-noise amplifiers (LNA) and high-power X-band amplifiers.
Such RF amplifiers are commonly used in front-end receivers and as driver amplifiers or high-power output amplifiers for applications at X-band frequencies such as commercial and military radar systems, satellite communication systems, terrestrial communications and networking, medical accelerators, and test & measurement setups.

The new X-band amplifiers exhibit high gain and are suited to high-linearity applications operating at frequencies covering 8-12GHz. Gain levels range from 30dB to 41dB over temperatures from -30°C to +70°C. The gain flatness ranges from ±0.50dB to ±1.0dB and the IP3 (third-order intercept point) output performs up to +45dBm.

The new LNA exhibits a competitive noise figure of 2.2dB and the RF power amplifiers are offered in 1W and 4W designs depending on the configuration.

Packaged in hermetically sealed metal enclosures, the performance of the new X-band LNA and power amplifiers is achieved by using hybrid microwave integrated circuit designs and gallium arsenide (GaAs) pseudomorphic high-electron-mobility transistor (pHEMT) technology. The connectorized SMA amplifier modules are unconditionally stable and include built-in voltage regulation, bias sequencing, and reverse-bias protection for added reliability. The RF amplifiers have over-voltage protection installed externally for easy repair.
