Endwave Corp., a provider of high frequency RF modules for telecommunications networks, defense electronics and homeland security systems, has announced the release of new millimeter-wave amplifiers that exhibit exceptional performance characteristics over broad bandwidths.

The Endwave LA series of millimeter-wave amplifiers are 10 models covering 33 to 75 GHz in up to 20 GHz bandwidths. They feature P1dB input powers as high as +11 dBm, noise figures as low as 7 dB and gain options from 10 to 40 dB. Additional performance characteristics include input/output VSWR of 2.2:1, and gain flatness of ±3.0 dB.

Innovative PHEMT device technology and thin-film hybrid construction are used to achieve these characteristics across these broad bands. They are ideal for EW, ECM and instrumentation applications. Endwave offers a full range of packaging configurations and RF interface options, including 2.4 mm, 1.85 mm coaxial configurations — plus waveguide options to cover all the various millimeter-wave bandwidths.

They can be modified with any of the following options: variable gain control, input/output isolators, input limiters, limiting amplifiers, TTL switching, waveguide interfaces, phase tracking, temperature compensation, detector output, gain matching, hermetic packages and bias-T outputs. Environmental screening is also available.
