Ultra Wideband/Broadband Low Noise RF Amplifiers for Millimeter Wave Applications

ultra-wideband broadband low noise millimeter wave amplifiers

Pasternack Ultra-Wideband / Broadband Low Noise Millimeter Wave Amplifiers

We launched a new line of ultra-wideband/broadband millimeter wave low noise amplifiers that are in-stock as usual with most all Pasternack products (except custom built coaxial cables, but those are ready same-day). Our new coaxial ultra wide/broad band high frequency LNA products offer very low noise figure levels, typically between 2.5 and 3 dB across the entire band. These very low noise radio frequency amplifiers are perfectly suited for use in applications such as: electronic warfare, instrumentation, military communications, radar, SATCOM, point-to-point radio links, telecom and R&D.

This group of ultra-wideband low noise amplifiers include 17 models covering multi-octave bandwidths with flat gain response and feature highly efficient GaAs PHEMT semiconductor technology. Our low noise millimeter wave ultra-broadband amplifier hybrid MIC circuits are enclosed in environmentally sealed coaxial metal packages with nickel or gold plating. These low noise amplifiers that are ultra-wide band come with either stainless steel SMA or 2.92mm connectors that are rated for up to 40 GHz and some packages are hermetically sealed with field replaceable connectors. The connectorized LNA amplifier field replaceable connectors and hermetically sealed package make these units very durable and able to withstand harsh environmental conditions.

Pasternack’s new ultra-broadband, millimeter wave LNA amplifiers have IP3 levels as high as +42 dBm, low VSWR and are unconditionally stable. DC voltage supply of these very wideband high radio frequency amplifiers range from +12 to +15 Vdc while bias current ranges from 80 mA to 1300 mA and the voltage supply is internally regulated. The low noise ultra wideband amplifiers contain internal circuits including DC blocking capacitors at the RF input/output ports and are guaranteed to operate over a wide temperature swing from -20°C to +70°C.
