Giga-tronics introduces the GT-1040A and GT-1050A Solid-State Broadband Microwave Power Amplifiers which cover 2 GHz to 40 GHz and 2 GHz to 50 GHz respectively, with high output power, low noise figure and low harmonics.

Designed using Broadband MMIC technology, these amplifiers typically provide ½ Watt (+27 dBm) at 40 GHz and ¼ Watt (+24 dBm) at 50 GHz with > 20 dB gain and 12 dB noise figure. Gain flatness is typically +/- 3 dB to 40 GHz and +/- 5 dB to 50 GHz.

The Giga-tronics solid-state broadband 40 GHz and 50 GHz amplifiers were designed in response to customer requests for higher power at higher frequency from our microwave signal generators. Providing these amplifiers as external to the signal generators allows their placement closer to the device under test or integrated into a switch matrix. The amplifiers are easily used in R&D lab applications and manufacturing automated test systems to overcome cable losses from the signal generators or whenever higher power is required.

The Giga-tronics GT-1040A and GT-1050A microwave power amplifiers are ideal companions to the new Giga-tronics 40 GHz and 50 GHz Microwave Signal Generators. Output power is impressive across the band, with 1 W from 2 GHz to 10 GHz, ¾ Watt up to 30 GHz, as well as the ½ W up to 40 GHz and ¼ Watt to 50 GHz. The amplifiers feature high reverse isolation, excellent input and output match and the long life and reliability of solid-state technology.
