Pasternack Introduces New Line of Input-Protected Low-Noise Amplifiers that Provide Noise Figure Levels as Low as 0.8 dB

April 1, 2019

IRVINE, Calif. –Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand, and a leading provider of RF,microwave and millimeter wave products, has released a new line ofinput-protected low-noise amplifiers (LNA’s) with no damage up to +30 dBmCW input power that are ideal for radar systems, EW applications,military/microwave radios, wireless and satellite communications and test instrumentation.

Pasternack’s newline of input-protected low-noise amplifiers consists of 12 different modelsthat cover a broad range of frequency bands from 10 MHz to 3.5 GHz. Thesedesigns exhibit typical performance that includes low noise figure levels from0.8 to 1.6 dB, high-small signal gain ranging from 25 to 40 dB, and low VSWRlevels from 1.3:1 to 1.5:1. This performance is achieved through the use of hybridMIC designs that incorporate PIN diode limiter circuitry and Enhancement mode(Emode) GaAs pHEMT semiconductor devices. These amplifiers operate with a biasvoltage of +12V typical over the temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. The 50Ohm, SMA connectorized modules are unconditionally stable, include built-involtage regulation and have DC blocking capacitors on the RF ports.

“The robustperformance of these LNA’s is desirable in maintaining receiver sensitivityover a wide range of RF input signal levels for applications that may involveradar systems, test instrumentation and wireless and satellite communications.All models are in-stock and available for urgent demands with no minimum orderquantity required,” said Tim Galla, Product Manager.

Pasternack’s newinput-protected low-noise amplifiers are in stock and ready for immediateshipment with no minimum order quantity. For detailed information on theseproducts, please visit
