Endwave Defense Systems has announced its series of custom multi-function assemblies (MFAs) for RF power distribution applications. They provide input filtering, amplification using GaAs MMIC devices, digitally controlled attenuation, and temperature compensated power distribution of incoming RF signals among eight output ports. Limiters and equalizers are incorporated onto each signal path to provide flat output power response versus frequency, and the design provides stringent phase matching and tracking performance. Multiple models have been developed to accommodate multi-octave bandwidths within the 0.5 to 18 GHz range, making them suitable for electronic surveillance and signal intelligence (SIGINT) applications. Each model is hermetically sealed and works over the complete military operating range of -55° C to +85° C.
