Detector Log Video Amplifier

MITEQ Inc introduces a new addition to its family of Detector Log Video Amplifiers (DLVA). The FBLA-2/6-50 ultra-broadband unit, which operates in the 2 to 6 GHz range is a low noise, high dynamic range amplifier that utilizes improved sensitivity.

The Kovar housing is hermetically sealed and also fully EMI shielded. Total weight is approximately 20 grams and dimensions are 1.63” x 1.25” x 1.5” without SMA connectors.

Featuring fast rise time and a logarithmic linearity of 1 dB maximum at center frequency at 25C. Dynamic range is 50 dB and with the addition of a MITEQ LNA, the input power level can be extended down to –70 dBm. The unit has a logging slope of 50 mV/dB at center frequency at 25C. The DC offset drift is 50 mV typical over the operating temperature of –40 to +85C. Power is +8 VDC at 100 mA typical, -8 VDC at 30 mA typical.

The DLVA offers a broad operational frequency range, excellent temperature stability and exceptional log conformance. The SMA connectors are removable on the RF input and video output connectors.
