Family of High Reliability RF & Microwave Power Amplifiers Debuts

29 July 2015

Fairview Microwave has unveiled a complete portfolio of coaxial high-reliability power amplifiers with broadband frequencies ranging from 0.5 MHz to 20 GHz. Operable over extreme temperatures across -55°C to 85°C, the amplifiers are commonly used in demanding environments and applications such as warfare, instrumentation, military communications, radar, point-to-point radio, telecom, test & measurement, medical and SATCOM industries.

Several models meet MIL-STD-202 and MIL-STD-810 environmental test conditions, while some amplifier designs are environmentally screened in production to MIL-STD-202 test conditions. Other models feature integrated heatsink and cooling fans for improved thermal dissipation performance resulting in extending their operating life. For added reliability against harsh environments, certain models utilize hermetically sealed coaxial packages.

The power amplifiers generate saturated output power levels (Psat) up to 100 w and all models require only a single positive voltage supply ranging from +12 to +42 Vdc. Small signal gain levels range from 11 dB to 58 dB with IP3 linearity up to +66 dBm resulting in high dynamic range. All models are unconditionally stable.

The new hi-reliability RF amplifiers from Fairview are in stock and available.
