MIDDLETOWN, Ohio, 13 Oct. 2015. NuWaves Engineering in Middletown, Ohio, is introducing the NuPower 12B01A upgraded broadband RF and microwave power amplifier for L- and S-band transmitters, RF communications, telemetry, and electronic warfare (EW) applications, including systems running on battery power.

The NuPower 12B01A power electronics model, part number NW-PA-12B01A 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 transmitters, transceivers and data links that do not require linear performance.

The amplifier’s upgraded rugged aluminum chassis measures 3 by 3 by 0.65 inches and provides an additional 25 degrees Celsius of operational headroom with its new 85 C maximum baseplate temperature rating. The unit features supply voltage range of +11 to +32 volts DC.
