The SSPA 0.1-3.5-500 is a GaN-based power amplifier assembly that operates across VHF, UHF, L-band, and S-band frequencies. Suitable for communications or electronic-warfare (EW) applications, it provides separate TNC female input connectors for each of the four bands and combines all four into a single output connector.
The amplifier assembly measures 6.0 × 9.0 × 3.0 in. and incorporates reverse polarity protection, open- and short-circuit protection,and over- and under-voltage protection. It provides +53 dBm output power with at last 25-dB gain at VHF; +50 dBm output power with at least 21.8-dB gain at UHF; +49 dBm output power with at least 24.2-dB gain at L-band; and +49-dBm output power with at least 21.5-dB gain at S-band. The bands can be switched on and off in 100 μs or less. The amplifier assembly, with 2.0:1 input and output VSWR, is designed for operating temperatures from −40 to +85ºC.
