Now available from Link Microtek is a range of microwave amplifiers that provide the performance necessary for space, military and commercial communications applications. Manufactured by L-3 Narda West, the amplifiers cover the frequency range 0.5 to 18 GHz and can be specified for either wide-band or narrow-band applications. Operating from a single +12.0 to +15.0 VDC input, they offer low typical noise figures ranging from 1.3 to 5.5 dB, a maximum input VSWR of 2.0:1 at 50Ω and a maximum RF power of +20 dBm (CW) or 30 dBm pulse. Key features include internal voltage regulation, gain and phase matching/tracking, external gain control with a 25 dB dynamic range, and optional temperature compensation over the range 㫎C. Equipped with SMA coaxial input/output connectors as standard, the amplifiers are housed in compact, rugged, hermetically sealed packages.
