Low-Noise Amp Quiets 1 To 40 GHz

Nov. 19, 2013
A broadband low-noise amplifier maintains low noise figure from 1 to 40 GHz.

Model PEC-42-1G40G-20-12-292FF is a broadband low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bandwidth of 1 to 40 GHz and typical noise figure of 5.5 dB through 20 GHz. It is supplied in a rugged metal housing with coaxial connectors measuring 1.37 x 1.0 x 0.6 in. The LNA is designed for voltage supplies of +12 to +15 VDC with typical current consumption of 550 mA. It delivers typical gain of 42 dB with typical gain flatness of ±2.5 dB. The output power at 1-dB compression is 22 dBm through 18 GHz and +19 dBm from 18 to 40 GHz. The typical input/output VSWR is 2.0:1.
