Pasternack Low Phase Noise Amplifier Components for RF, Microwave and Millimeter Wave Available for Same-Day Shipping
Low phase noise amplifier component product line from Pasternack was announced. This new line of RF, microwave and millimeter wave low phase noise amplifier connectorized components incorporate GaAs HBT MMIC semiconductor technology to deliver ultra-low phase noise performance over a wide dynamic range. These low phase noise amplifiers can be used to help optimize the sensitivity and dynamic range of higher performing test, radar and communication receiver designs. The new Pasternack amplifiers are a great match where performance is dependent on how effectively the smallest and largest signal levels can be processed.
Advantages of the new low phase noise amps also apply to systems that require amplification of weaker signals close to the noise floor. The low phase noise performance of these amplifiers can help reduce unwanted noise and distortion that can inhibit the quality of the transmitted signal. Typical applications for a low phase noise amplifier include electronic warfare, microwave radio, VSAT, radar, space systems, test instrumentation and telecom infrastructure.
The five new RF, microwave and millimeter wave amp models with low phase noise cover select frequency bands ranging from 1.5 to 18 GHz with residual phase noise levels as low as -180 dBc/Hz @ 10 KHz offset. Additional performance specs include small signal gain ranging from 9 to 14 dB, with typical noise figure of 5.5 dB. Psat levels for these amplifiers range from +16 to +25 dBm with Output IP3 levels as high as +34 dBm. All low phase noise amp models feature single DC voltage supplies and input/output RF ports are internally matched for 50 ohms with DC blocking capacitors.
These compact module amplifier assemblies require no external components and are available in rugged Kovar™ metal drop-in packages that are gold-over-nickel-plated and support field replaceable SMA connectors. All low phase noise amplifier models are EAR99 and guaranteed to meet MIL-STD-883 test conditions for hermetic and temperature cycle.
