8-18 GHz High Power Amplifier

MITEQNPR-002PhotosmallMITEQ introduces a new addition to its family of broadband high power amplifiers. AMF-2B-08001800-80-40P is a connectorized high power amplifier, covering octave bandwidth from 8 to 18 GHz and delivering approximately 3 W of power and 2.5 W from 6 to 18 GHz. In the band of 10-15 GHz, it delivers about 7W of P1dB.

The SMA connectorized aluminum housing is 21mm (H) x 95mm (L) x 60mm (W). It is intended for bolting to a flat cooling surface or fins. Housing is environmentally sealed, EMI shielded and hermetic sealing option is also available. PA includes reverse voltage protection, in addition to full internal regulation. A TTL-control pin is optional.

Nominal small-signal gain is 50 dB while noise figure is close to 5 dB across the band. Current draw is nominally 4A at P1dB from 12 to 15 VDC of supply. Output IP3 is a minimum of 44 dBm across the full band, closer to 47 dBm from 10–15 GHz.
