International Radio Frequency (RF) and Microwave solutions provider, NuWaves Engineering, has introduced their broadband low noise amplifier covering C- to X-Band frequencies, extending the frequency range and potential applications over which the HILNATM family of Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) products can operate.
The HILNATM CX is the latest addition to the NuWaves’ High Intercept Low Noise Amplifiers (HILNATM) family of LNA’s, covering C- to X-Band frequencies. This model features a miniature form factor of 1.2in3, allowing for ease of integration into space-constrained systems. The HILNATM CX delivers over 35dB of gain across the entire broad range of 5-10GHz with a noise figure of 2.5dB and OIP3 of +21dBm. The HILNATM CX’s ultra-broadband coverage allows the user comprehensive spectrum coverage within a single, miniature module. Custom solutions for this LNA module are available for systems requiring other bandwidths, military screening, form factors, filtering and gain.
“As an add-on to an existing communications system, the HILNATM CX offers the systems integrator the ability to amplify C- and X-Band signals with high linearity for higher resolution imagery and high-resolution imaging radars for target identification and discrimination,” said Jeff Wells, President and CEO of NuWaves Engineering. “NuWaves Engineering takes pride in offering first-rate communications solutions to the Warfighter. Our low noise power amplifiers enable greater standoff distances for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) applications, giving our armed forces the advantage in hostile environments.”
