MITEQ Inc. introduces a new addition, Model AWS-3F-02002650-50-17P, to its family of hermetic coaxial amplifiers. This amplifier has over 25 dB of gain from 2 to 26.5 GHz in a housing that is only 1" long and 0.66" wide, not including the field replaceable SMA-connectors. Gain flatness is a maximum of ±1.5 dB, with typical flatness of ±1 dB.

The AWS-3F-02002650-50-17P has a maximum noise figure of 5 dB. This amplifier operates over a baseplate temperature of -40 to +75°C, has a P1dB minimum of 17 dBm, OIP3 of 25 dBm typical, and DC power requirement is 300 mA maximum from a single +12 V DC supply. The aluminum base provides excellent thermal characteristics while the slim profile Kovar housing allows for hermetic sealing if required.

The use of an EMI filtered DC input provides for improved EMI performance. Hi-Rel versions are also available. This model is RoHS compliant.
