Ku- and Ka-band Power Amplifiers Enable High Linearity Transmitters for VSAT and Broadband Satellite Networks
These parts are also available in a bench-top 19" rack-mount configuration for instrumentation applications. In this form-factor, the rack-mount units operate off 120-240 VAC and include all the necessary AC-to-DC conversion, power line filtering and conditioning internal to the unit.
Across frequency variants, these power amplifiers employ 85% common parts to ensure fast delivery and a robust, repeatable design approach. Other popular add-on options include customizable bias features, optional linear variable attenuators for power control, on-board output power monitors and built-in temperature compensation. Call the factory for frequency band coverage, including popular S, C, and X-bands to cover WiFi, WiMAX, and other communications bands.
These products are made possible through Endwave's acquisition of ALC Microwave. In addition to a world-class line of log amplifiers that ALC has become famous for, ALC has also significantly strengthened Endwave's overall amplifier product line with impressive additions to Endwave's power, limiting, low-noise, and general purpose amplifier offering.
