M/A-COM announces a family of Ka-band triplers, X-band variable gain amplifiers, and Ka-band power amplifiers. The amplifier and tripler family uses a weight and space saving design that utilizes advances in housing materials for the military and avionics market. MAAMML0016 and MAAMML0017 are high reliability Ka-band connectorized amplifiers. Built-in circuitry ensures that power supply sequencing can be in any order, for both power-up and power-down. The MAAMML0018 is a high reliability X-band variable gain amplifier. A variable attenuator is followed by an X-band amplifier. This allows total unit gain to be adjustable over a > = 28 dB range, from an applied control voltage. The MAAMML0019, MAAMML0020, and MAAMML0021 are high reliability X to Ka-band triplers. The units consist of a tripler followed by a Ka-band amplifier and band pass filter (BPF). The amplifier restores output signal strength and the BPF reduces out of band products. The MAAMML0016, MAAMML0017, MAAMML0018, MAAMML0019, MAAMML0020 and MAAMML0021 are also available as space qualified versions.
