Aethercomm’s Model Number SSPA 0.1-1.0-100 is a high power, broadband, gallium nitride (GaN) RF amplifier that operates from 100 to 1000 MHz. This PA is appropriate for broadband military platforms as well as commercial applications because it is robust and offers high power over a decade bandwidth. This module operates with a base plate temperature of 85°C with no degradation in the MTBF for the GaN devices inside. It is packaged in a modular housing that is approximately 8.00 3 8.00 3 1.50. Noise figure at room temperature is 6.0 dB typical. The device offers a typical gain of 28 dB with a typical gain flatness of 2.0 dB. Input and Output VSWR is 2.0:1 maximum. Class AB current is ~4.0 amps typical employing a +28Vdc supply. The amplifier operates from -40°C to +85°C base plate.
