NuWaves Engineering Introduces 5 Watt L- & S-Band Radio Frequency Power Amplifier Module for Communications, Telemetry and Electronic Warfare Markets

Middletown, Ohio, – NuWaves Engineering, an international Radio Frequency (RF) and Microwave solutions provider, announced the upcoming release of an upgraded miniature RF power amplifier (PA) for L- and S-band transmitters and data radios, the NuPower™ 12A03A model, featuring high power efficiency and dual-band operation in a compact package. The 12A03A will be available in early October, 2016.

The NuPower™ 12A03A model, part number NW-PA-12A03A, will replace the NuPower™ Micro Power Amplifier model, part number NW-SSPA-MICRO-5W-1.0-2.5, delivering a minimum of 5 Watts of RF power from 1.0 to 2.5 GHz when driven with a 0 dBm (1 milliwatt) RF input signal. The 12A03A is will also be available in a 30 dBm (1 Watt) input power level version, allowing plug-and-play use with various data transceivers, such as the L-3 Communications Bandit radio. The PA’s upgraded rugged aluminum chassis, at 1.8” x 1.8” x 0.5” in size, maintains the footprint of the original, allowing for drop-in compatibility between the two units, and allows for integration into some of the smallest unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) flying today. Further, the unit features a low current draw of 0.85 A (typ) at +28 VDC, supporting an array of RF communications, telemetry and electronic warfare applications where low power consumption is critical.

“Our second generation Micro PA module has been improved in several areas as a result of the NuWaves’ continuous improvement mindset,” said Jeff Wells, President and CEO of NuWaves Engineering. “The NuWaves’ team has done an excellent job refining the design and improving many aspects of the manufacturing process for this product, allowing us to better support the Warfighter through shortened production schedules.”
