THE LATEST ADDITION to a family of broadband high-power amplifiers boasts nominal smallsignal gain of 52 dB and typical saturated output power of +38 with 1 dB output-power flatness. The model AMF-8B-18002650-70-37P plate-mounted high-power amplifier spans 18 to 26.5 GHz while delivering at least 5 W of saturated output power. It generally offers input/output-port voltage standing wave ratios (VSWRs) of 2.0:1 or less. The unit runs from +12 to +15 VDC (+48 VDC optional). At full power, it typically draws 7 A. The SMA connectorized module has a base that is 5 in. wide, 5.24 in. long, and 2 in. high including heat-sink fins on top. Its housing is EMI and environmentally shielded. The amplifier can operate at baseplate temperatures to +60C. It includes overtemperature protection in addition to full internal voltage regulation. A 20-dB output coupled port is available as an option.
