Giga-tronics has introduced the GT-1000B option 06 and the GT-1050B/GT-1051B olid-state ultra-wideband microwave power amplifiers which cover 100 MHz to 20 GHz and 10 MHz/2 GHz to 50 GHz respectively, with high output power, low noise figure and low harmonics in a single amplifier.  Designed using Broadband MMIC technology, the GT-1000B option 06 provides 5 Watts from 100 MHz to 18 GHz and the GT-1050B/GT-1051B provides ½ Watt (+27 dBm) at 40 GHz and ¼ Watt (+24 dBm) at 50 GHz with high gain and low noise figure. This ultra-wideband capability eliminates the need to switch between multiple narrow band amplifiers resulting in improved performance and savings in time and expense.

 “The GT-1000B option 06 and GT-1050B/GT-1051B microwave power amplifiers are general purpose, high-performance amplifiers suitable for applications in EMC, R&D bench testing and manufacturing ATE wherever microwave signal amplification is needed” said Mike Penta, Vice President of Sales for Giga-tronics Incorporated.  “We are continually innovating to provide our customers with solutions to their test and measurement needs that improve performance, reduce their test times and provide bottom-line benefits in productivity.”

These ultra-wideband amplifiers provider higher power from microwave signal generators and are easily placed closer to the device under test or integrated into automated test systems to overcome cable and signal switching losses.  The low noise figure makes them excellent preamps for spectrum analyzers and EMC receivers.

The +/- 3.5 dB typical gain flatness performance outperforms multiple narrow band amplifiers, and the amplifiers feature high reverse isolation, excellent input and output match and the long life and high reliability of solid-state technology.
