Coaxial X Band High Gain PAs suit high linearity applications.
Press Release Summary:
April 8, 2014 - Supplied in 1 and 4 W designs with hermetically-sealed metal enclosures, coaxial X band high gain power amplifiers (PAs) use hybrid microwave IC design and GaAs pHEMT technology that lend to optimized gain (30–41 dB over -30 and +70°C range), gain flatness (0.50–1.0 dB), linearity, and dynamic range performance. IP3 output performs up to 44 dBm, and products are fully matched internally for 50 Ω input and output. Also, connectorized SMA amplifier modules are unconditionally stable.

Pasternack Introduces All New Line of X Band Amplifiers
Press release date: March 29, 2014
Irvine, CA — Pasternack Enterprises, Inc., an industry leading manufacturer and supplier of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, introduces a new family of coaxial X band high gain power amplifiers. These RF amplifiers are typically used as driver amplifiers or high power output amplifiers in a wide variety of commercial, industrial and military applications including telecom infrastructure, test instrumentation, fixed microwave backhaul, radar systems, communication systems, satellite communications and commercial avionics.
Pasternack’s new X band power amplifiers are packaged inside hermetically-sealed metal enclosures and exhibit outstanding performance in high gain, gain flatness, high linearity and wide dynamic range. This excellent performance is achieved by using a hybrid microwave integrated circuit design 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. The power amplifier over-voltage protection is installed externally for easy repair. These high reliability RF amplifiers are fully matched internally for 50 Ohm input and output, which eliminates the customers need for any additional sensitive external RF tuning components.
The new X band high gain power amplifiers from Pasternack are perfectly suited for high linearity applications with frequencies ranging from 8 to 12 GHz. These X-band amplifiers offer 30 to 41 dB small signal gain over a temperature range of -30°C and +70°C. The excellent gain flatness of these high gain amplifiers ranges from 0.50 dB to 1.0 dB and the IP3 output performs up to 44 dBm. Pasternack’s new RF amplifiers are offered in 1 Watt and 4 Watt designs depending on the configuration.
“The rapid growth of our active components offering signifies a new company strategy to further expand our reach in the RF industry”, says Michael Rachlin, Active RF/microwave Products Manager at Pasternack. “Our new X-band power amplifiers represent the first installment toward the execution of this strategic direction.”
The new coaxial X band high gain power amplifiers from Pasternack are in-stock and available now.
