Giga-tronics has introduced the GT-1040A and GT-1050A Solid-state Broadband Microwave Power Amplifiers, which cover 2 to 40 GHz and 2 to 50 GHz, respectively, with high output power, low noise figure and low harmonics. Designed using Broadband MMIC technology, these amplifiers typically provide ½ W (+27 dBm) at 40 GHz and ¼ W (+24 dBm) at 50 GHz with > 20 dB gain and < 12 dB noise figure. Gain flatness is typically +/- 3 dB to 40 GHz and +/- 5 dB to 50 GHz.

“The GT-1040A and GT-1050A microwave power amplifiers are focused on the many applications in ATE and bench testing in aerospace and defense, commercial communications, and microwave component test that require higher power than is currently available in microwave signal generators,” said Malcolm Levy, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Giga-tronics Inc. “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.”

The Giga-tronics solid-state broadband 40 and 50 GHz amplifiers were designed in response to customer requests for higher power at higher frequency from our microwave signal generators. Providing these amplifiers as external to the signal generators allows their placement closer to the device under test or integrated into a switch matrix. The amplifiers are easily used in R&D lab applications and manufacturing automated test systems to overcome cable losses from the signal generators or whenever higher power is required.

The Giga-tronics GT-1040A and GT-1050A microwave power amplifiers are ideal companions to the new Giga-tronics 40 and 50 GHz Microwave Signal Generators. Output power is impressive across the band, with 1 W from 2 to 10 GHz, ¾ W up to 30 GHz, as well as the ½ W up to 40 GHz and ¼ Watt to 50 GHz. The amplifiers feature high reverse isolation, excellent input and output match and the long life and reliability of solid-state technology. Delivery is 6 to 8 weeks ARO.
