Fairview Microwave Introduces New Line of LNA and High Power X-band Amplifiers
[Via Satellite 05-12-2015] Fairview Microwave, a supplier of on-demand microwave and RF components, introduced a new family of coaxial LNA and high power X-band amplifiers. These RF amplifiers are commonly used in front-end receivers and as driver amplifiers or high power output amplifiers for applications in X band, such as commercial and military radar systems, satellite communication systems, terrestrial communications and networking, medical accelerators, and test and measurement setups.
Fairview’s new X-band LNA and power amplifiers are packaged inside hermetically sealed metal enclosures and exhibit outstanding performance for low noise, high gain, gain flatness, high linearity and wide dynamic range. This performance is achieved by using hybrid microwave integrated circuit designs and advanced GaAs pHEMT technology. The connectorized SMA amplifier modules are unconditionally stable and include built-in voltage regulation, bias sequencing, and reverse bias protection for added reliability. These RF amplifiers have over-voltage protection that’s installed externally for easy repair.
