Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for three new 16 W power amplifiers from Wavelex.

The new 50-ohm, unconditionally stable PAs operate from a single DC power supply and cover 1805 to 1880, 1930 to 1990, and 2110 to 2170 MHz frequency ranges - common bands for test and measurement applications.

They feature high gain, low gain flatness, low noise figure, infinite load VSWR protection, and high power added efficiency. The new SMA-connectorized PAs are packaged with precision machine housings in Wavelex’s WP-1M package. Wavelex products are 100% production-tested on all minimum and maximum electrical specifications.

In addition to test and measurement, the new PAs are suitable for CDMA/WCDMA mobile infrastructure and fixed wireless communication applications.

The WPA18-45A, WPA19-43A and WPA21-41A are part of a family of 17W to 25W power amplifiers from Wavelex.

According to Wavelex, additional key features of the new PAs include:
