CAP Wireless Offers New Broadband Driver Amplifier for Instrumentation and EW Simulation



NEWBURY PARK, Calif. - Oct. 6, 2008 - CAP Wireless, Inc. (CAP), a leading supplier of high-performance microwave and RF amplifiers and amplifier-based subsystems, today announced the KS5388 broadband driver amplifier, a high performance, solid state, power amplifier that is ideally-suited for use as a broadband driver or moderate power output stage in instrumentation and electronic warfare (EW) simulation. It can also be used as a receiver amplifier in broadband, high-dynamic-range receiver systems.

The KS5388 combines the advantages of high-frequency gallium arsenide (GaAs) device performance and reliability with CAP's state-of-the-art broadband, high power, high temperature co-fired ceramic (HTCC) device packaging to provide a cost-efficient solution with outstanding broadband power amplification. The unit efficiently achieves five watts of power amplification from six to 18 GHz and includes a copper heat spreader to optimize heat dissipation and enhance reliability. Typical applications include electronic counter measures (ECM, ECCM), multi-band communications, signal simulators, and instrument and test equipment.

Key features of the KS5388:

o Broad 6 to 18 GHz bandwidth

o 37dBm output power

o 35 dB gain

o Solid state GaAs monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) reliability

o Economical, state-of-the-art HTCC device packaging
