MITEQ, Inc., represented by ASD Technology in Australia and New Zealand has released a new addition to its family of broadband high power amplifiers. The AMF-2B-08001800-80-40P is a connectorised high power amplifier, covering octave bandwidth from 8-18 GHz and delivering approximately 3W of power and 2.5W from 6-18 GHz.
In the band of 10-15 GHz, AMF-2B-08001800-80-40P delivers about 7W of P1dB. The SMA connectorised aluminum housing is 21mm (H) x 95mm (L) x 60mm (W). It is intended for bolting to a flat cooling surface or fins. Housing is environmentally sealed, EMI shielded and hermetic sealing option is also available. PA includes reverse voltage protection, in addition to full internal regulation. A TTL-control pin is optional.
Nominal small-signal gain is 50 dB while noise figure is close to 5 dB across the band. Current draw is nominally 4A at P1dB from 12 to 15 VDC of supply. Output IP3 is a minimum of 44 dBm across the full band, closer to 47 dBm from 10–15 GHz.
