Original Press Release

ESD AutoDetect Amplifier

Press release date: Jul 12, 2017

Microwave Solutions, Inc. is introducing this low frequency amplifier operational from 225- 400MHz with a built in ESD protection device, RF input power AutoDetect threshold turn on circuit and an integrated filter to attenuate adjacent or harmonically related signals.

When the RF signal applied to the RF INPUT connector exceeds 0 dBm (+/-2dBm), the internal AutoDetect threshold circuit turns on the bias to the RF gain stages and also toggles the state of an internal Field Effect Transistor. Hysteresis is approximately 1 to 3dB, once the amplifier is toggled by the applied RF level crossing the threshold level, the amplifier won’t again toggle unless the threshold is again crossed by an additional 1 to 3dB. This amplifier is perfect when you just need a little boost in your system and is turn on at specific settings.

Typical Gain is 15 to 18dB with Saturated Power at 34.5 dBm min. I/O VSWR is 2.0:1. The amplifier operates with +11.5 to 15VDC at 1.0 Amps max. over -20 to +71 °C. Size: 4.38x2.82x1.26 inches (LxWxH)
