Pasternack has rolled out what it describes as a line-up of affordable coaxial-packaged RF amplifiers. According to the company, the low noise and gain block amplifiers display excellent performance covering wide octave frequency bands from 9kHz to 3GHz.

The products claim to provide engineers a convenient and economical source of in-stock and ready to ship coaxial RF amplifier solutions. The devices are also geared for a number of applications such as military communications, electronic warfare, SATCOM, fibre optic communication systems, wireless base stations, medical patient monitoring systems and university R&D labs.

RF amplifier

The RF amplifiers have P1dB levels up to 23, low VSWR and are unconditionally stable. Many of these amplifier designs use advanced GaAs PHEMT semiconductors for highly linear performance and high efficiency. These amplifiers exhibit outstanding noise figure levels as low as 0.5dB and high IP3 linearity up to 37dBm. Single DC positive voltage supply ranges from 12VDC to 15VDC, while bias current ranges from 40mA to 190mA. The 50Ω hybrid circuits require no external matching components and are enclosed in rugged metal packages with SMA connectors making them environmentally sealed from harsh elements. Designs perform across the full operational temperature range of -40°C to 85°C.

All of the products are in-stock and ready to ship. The amplifiers are all priced less than $500 for a single unit.
