The ZX60-183A+ two-stage amplifier provides 28 dB gain in a very small package, only 0.75" x 0.74" x 0.46" high. Internal compensating circuitry provides a consistent, very flat response over the full bandwidth. Designed for 50 Ω SMA coax systems, the gold-plated package uses convenient 5 V DC power, and has a nickel-plated brass cover and unibody construction for rugged use.

Vaunix has announced the addition of a new 75 Ohm model to their family of LDA series digital attenuators. The LDA-102-75F has input power of up to 1 W, attenuation range to 95 dB, and offers frequency coverage of 10 to 1000 MHz. This unit is powered and controlled by connection to a PC or self-powered USB hub, and programmable for fixed attenuation or swept attenuation ramps directly from the included graphical user interface (GUI) software.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a 1 W (30.5 dBm) Psat amplifier covering radar and satcom applications from 16 to 18 GHz. The TGA2621 can be used as a general purpose amplifier drawing 400 mA from a 6 V supply. PAE for the TGA2621 is 28% while small signal gain is 26.5 dB. Qorvo offers this amplifier as a 2 x 2.5 mm DIE.
