Model 1189 from Empower RF Systems is a recent addition to the company's portfolio of building block designs incorporating the latest GaN device technologies and control functionality. The module delivers 100 W minimum, 125 W typical Psat over 500 to 2500 MHz at typical efficiencies of 45%.
The GCM5C5DHO (SKU 3114) is a 2110-2170 MHz, 47 dBm, GaN, multi-function, microprocessor controlled amplifier. This amplifier is small (2" x 6") and lightweight (<0.5 pounds) providing 50 W over the entire -40° to +85° C temperature range. Efficiency is > 50% and is designed for rugged operating conditions operating unconditional stable into open and short circuits.
AR’s model 20S4G18, a 20 W solid-state amplifier covering 4 to 18 GHz provides high gain, low noise, good linearity and excellent mismatch capability. The amplifier also delivers superior EVM (error vector magnitude) performance. With a minimum of 43 dB gain and a typical noise figure of 6 dB, the 20S4G18 offers significant advantages over traveling wave tube amplifiers in this frequency range.
NIC’s 6550 MHz ceramic filter is a high frequency ceramic filter built for use in C-band applications. The features include low insertion loss of < 2.5dB at center frequency, rejection of > 50dB at 6000 MHz and > 40dB at 7200 MHz, built in a small package size of 0.83 x 0.51 x 0.19 inches.
