ENGINEERS WHO EITHER do not have or do not want additional power input cables within their test environments will welcome the BOX-010200 self-contained, battery-powered amplifier. It provides gain of 25 dB from 1 to 20 GHz with typical output power of +13 dBm at 1-dB compression. The amplifier's noise figure ranges from 3 to 5 dB. The microwave-integrated-circuit (MIC) design utilizes galliumarsenide (GaAs), pseudomorphic-high-electron-mobility-transistor (PHEMT), distributed- amplifier monolithic-microwave-integrated-circuit (MMIC) technology. Proprietary matching circuits also are housed within the die-cast aluminum alloy housing, which contains a rechargeable nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH) battery. The fully charged battery has a typical run time of 24 hrs. and standby time of 28 days. A battery charger is supplied with each unit. Measuring 175 x 80 x 60 mm, the amplifier offers a choice of either axial or radial connector locations and options of male/female precision type N, SMA, or other connectors.
