ring the frequency range 8.0-12.0GHz this amplifier utilises thin film and MMIC technology to provide a very versatile, economical and reliable gain module for microwave applications in communications, radar and defence equipment.
AGM-1005-15 runs from a +15V DC supply to deliver over 18dBm of linear power at typical gain of 12dB and noise figure of 4dB at +25C. Gain flatness is +/-0.75dB max over the band and the input and output VSWRs are 2.0:1 maximum.
All units are tested over the temperature range of -55 to +85C and the MIL-STD-883 screening includes Precap, Stabilisation bake, Temperature cycling, Burn-in, Acceleration, Vibration as well as Gross and Fine leak.
At around the size of a small postage stamp, the amplifier enables high density assembly and is also casacadeable for higher gain.
