Fairview Microwave has unveiled a new series of waveguide power amplifiers designed to cover high mmWave frequency bands from 26.5 GHz to 96 GHz.

This range of waveguide power amplifiers delivers exceptional performance and adaptability to address the needs of a wide range of sectors including satcom, radar, wireless infrastructure, 5G and more.

These advanced waveguide power amplifiers employ state-of-the-art GaAs and GaN MMIC semiconductor techniques, guaranteeing exceptional efficiency in a space-efficient package.

Featuring gain levels ranging from 25 dB to 35 dB and output Psat levels extending from 20 dBm to 31 dBm, these amplifiers ensure top-notch performance throughout the popular Ka, Q, U, V, E and W bands.

Fairview Microwave’s waveguide power amplifiers are designed to endure demanding conditions, incorporating sturdy, compact, MIL-grade, gold-plated aluminum waveguide enclosures. They operate in temperatures from -40°F to +176°F (-40°C to +80°C) and can withstand exposure to 95 percent relative humidity and altitudes up to 10,000 feet.

These waveguide power amplifiers are ideal for a range of applications, such as satellite communications, research and development, prototype/proof of concept, test and measurement applications and both airborne and ground-based uses.

“These new waveguide power amplifiers allow our customers to exploit the potential of high mmWave frequencies for their diverse applications. We are confident they will significantly benefit industries requiring high-performance communication and networking systems,” said Tim Galla, product line manager.
