PMI Model No. PEC2-8G18G-21DBM-LM-SFF is an 8.0 to 18.0 GHz limiting amplifier that provides an nominal output power level of +20.0 dBm for an input power range of -50 to +10 dBm CW. This model has output power level versus frequency range compensation such that the limited output power has a flat frequency response. The unit is supplied in a small housing measuring only 2.98" x 0.78" x 0.36".
PMI Model No. PEC-14-127-8-12-SFF Rev B is a wide band front end amplifier that operates over the frequency range of 1.0 to 26.5 GHz. This model provides gain of 13 to 17 dBm and has a maximum gain flatness of +/-1.5 dB. The maximum noise figure is 5.5 dB from 1.0 to 20.0 GHZ and 6.0 dB from 20.0 to 26.5 GHz. The housing measures 0.83" x 0.75" x 0.36" and is supplied with removable SMA connectors.
PMI Model No. PA-40-17D521D5-5R0-36-12-292FF is a medium power amplifier that operates over the frequency range of 15.7 to 21.5 GHz. It has a nominal gain of 40 dB typical with a maximum gain flatness of +/-1.75 dB and a typical noise figure of 5.0 dB. It is supplied with SMA(F) connectors in a housing that measures 2.6" x 2.0" x 0.5"
