Microwave Solutions introduces the BGC-DET amplifier series. These Binary Gain Control amplifiers offer a wide range of power from 15 to 30 dBm output power in the X thru KU band frequencies. They have an attenuation range of 30 dB and a control of 8 bit TTL maximum, attenuation steps of .25 dB, nominal LSB .125 dB. They also offer a coupler detection voltage system and have a N.F. of 5 dB and I/O VSWR 1.5:1. These units can be used for uplink systems that require power control.
