MIDDLETOWN, Ohio, 19 Nov. 2015. NuWaves Engineering in Middletown, Ohio, is introducing the NuPower 12B01A upgraded broadband RF and microwave power amplifier for L- and S-band transmitters, data radios, data links, telemetry, and electronic warfare (EW).

The NuPower 12B01A, part number NW-PA-12B01A, replaces the NuPower L- & S-Band Power Amplifier, part number NW-SSPA-10W-1.0-2.5, delivers a minimum of 10 Watts, and typically 13 Watts, of RF power from 1000 to 2500 MHz when sourced with a 0 dBm (1 milliwatt) RF input signal.

Featuring power efficiency in the 30-to-50-percent range, and 40 dB of RF gain, the NuPower 12B01A provides high-efficiency RF amplification for a variety of RF power applications that do not require linear performance.

The power amplifier’s upgraded rugged aluminum chassis 3 by 2 by 0.65 inches and operates in temperatures to 85 degrees Celsius maximum baseplate temperature rating. The unit features a supply voltage range of +11 to +32 volts DC for a variety of applications, including systems running on battery power.

An alternative product configuration, part number NW-PA-12B01A-D30, is available with reduced gain that accepts a +30 dBm (1 Watt) RF input signal from the transmitter, supporting a common RF output level of industry data links, such as L-3 Communications’ Bandit. Both standard and alternative product configurations are immediately available for shipment.
