Global RF and microwave components and equipment manufacturer, AtlanTecRF, has launched a new Ultra Broadband Amplifier, covering the 50MHz–20GHz frequency range in a single unit. This 25dB gain block delivers up to 18dB at 1dB compression and yet has a typical noise figure of just 1.8dB, thereby making it an all round, general purpose amplifier with applications in test measurement, electronic countermeasures and scientific research as well as a whole range of communication equipment.
This new model draws just 180mA from a 12VDC supply, exhibits 27dBm third order intercept and output VSWR down to 1.5:1, while another key feature is its reverse isolation of 60dB.
Vital statistics in the environmental area include altitude up to 60,000ft, vibration to 25g RMS and relative humidity of 100% at 35°C temperature.
Connectors are SMA female and the gold-plated housing size is only 1.18x1.58x0.47" with an overall weight less than 160g.
Geoff Burling, AtlanTecRF’s CEO, said: “In listening to our customers we know that affordable performance is at the top of their wish list and this new Amplifier, with a multitude of applications, delivers big time on this need”.
The new BBA Amplifier is available in both an epoxy sealed version with an operating temperature range of -45 to 85°C or a laser welded version extending the temperature range to -55 to 125°C.
