Pasternack has introduced a new portfolio of solid state, high power amplifiers. These coaxial packaged RF amplifiers cover UHF, VHF, L, S and C frequency bands and are used in applications including electronic warfare, instrumentation, military communications, radar, SATCOM, telecom, data links and medical devices.

Pasternack's latest release of RF amplifiers includes 22 models with output power levels greater than 10W that cover broadband frequencies from 150kHz to 7500MHz. Solid state 50Ω hybrid MIC designs use GaN, GaAs or LDMOS transistor technology that offers high dynamic range and allows gain levels ranging from 40dB to 60dB. The typical gain variation of these amplifiers is 1.5dB. Some amplifier models have output P1dB levels ranging from 10W to 50W, while some devices have output saturated power levels (Psat) ranging from 40dBm to 50dBm.

All of the high power amplifiers in this product family have single voltage supplies, which are internally regulated, and the circuits are enclosed in environmentally sealed metal packages. These rugged coaxial packages withstand environmental conditions like humidity, altitude, shock and vibration and each module is designed with stainless steel SMA female connectors. Each SSPA from Pasternack is classified as EAR99.
