RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a high power, solid state power amplifier from Aethercomm. Designed for high power, linear applications in both ground and airborne systems, the SSPA 2.0-6.0-250 delivers a nominal 250 W from 2.0 to 6.0 GHz and attains 300 W of saturated RF power for non-linear requirements.
Developed using GaN technology for instantaneous, broad band performance, the SSPA 2.0-6.0-250 offers 70 dB of small signal gain and has 20-25% composite power added efficiency across the band. Powered from a 28Vdc supply, standard features include reverse polarity protection, over-temperature protection, and over/under voltage protection. Input and output VSWR is specified at 2.0:1 maximum and a discrete blanking control line is included with a 10 uSec maximum turn on/off time.
This Aethercomm SSPA is tested to MIL-STD-810 shock and vibration requirements.
