A packaged, microwave low noise amplifier (LNA) that has been designed for the unique requirements of military satellite communication (MIL SATCOM) and other airborne systems.

Specifically, the operating bandwidth of model ERZ-LNA-1770-2200-40-1.5 is from 17.7 GHz to 22 GHz, which spans both military and commercial Ka-band Satcom frequencies. The LNA is a state-of-the-art unit which features a typical noise figure of 1.3 dB at 25ºC at mid-band, and a maximum of 1.4 dB over the entire operating band. This is an exceptional noise figure for an LNA at this frequency and solves a key challenge often encountered by Satcom system engineers.
