IRVINE, Calif., 6 July 2015. Pasternack Enterprises Inc. in Irvine, Calif., is introducing rugged solid-state high-power amplifiers for electronic warfare (EW), instrumentation, military communications, radar, satellite communications (SATCOM), telecommunications, data links, and medical devices.

These coaxial packaged RF and microwave amplifiers cover UHF, VHF, L, S, and C frequency bands and are designed to withstand environmental conditions like humidity, altitude, shock, and vibration.

Pasternack's latest release of high performance RF amplifiers includes 22 models with output power levels greater than 10 Watts that cover broadband frequencies from 150 kHz to 7500 MHz.

Solid state 50 ohm hybrid MIC designs use GaN, GaAs, or LDMOS transistor technology that offers high dynamic range and allows gain levels ranging from 40 to 60 dB. The typical gain variation of these amplifiers is plus-or-minus 1.5 dB.

Some amplifier models have output P1dB levels ranging from +10 to +50 Watts, while some devices have output saturated power levels (Psat) ranging from +40 to +50 dBm.

All of the high power amplifiers in this product family have single voltage supplies which are internally regulated and the circuits are enclosed in environmentally sealed metal packages. These rugged coaxial packages are designed with stainless steel SMA female connectors. Each SSPA from Pasternack is classified as EAR99.
