Low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) for military and commercial applications introduced by Pasternack
IRVINE, Calif., 12 June 2014. Pasternack Enterprises Inc. in Irvine, Calif., is introducing a family of 14 low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) for military and commercial RF and microwave applications. the LNAs offer high gain and broadband performance between 9 KHz and 18 GHz.
These LNAs have a choice of noise figures, gain levels, frequency ranges, and power outputs. The LNA category exhibits broadband performance from 9 KHz to 18 GHz, noise figures between 0.8 dB to 3 dB, gain levels from 25 dB to 50 dB, gain flatness from plus-or-minus 0.75 dB to plus-or-minus 1.25 dB, and power output levels (P1dB or Psat) between 10 dBm and 18 dBm.
The performance of these LNAs relies on a hybrid microwave integrated circuit design and advanced GaAs PHEMT technology. The LNAs from Pasternack are connectorized SMA modules that are stable and include built-in voltage regulation, bias sequencing, and reverse bias protection for added reliability.
Depending on the intended application of these RF amplifiers, both hermetically sealed and non-hermetically sealed versions are available. The LNAs are matched internally for input and output at 50 ohm, which eliminates the customers need for any sensitive external RF tuning components.
