By taking a monolithic-microwave-integrated- circuit (MMIC) approach, a family of broadband high-power amplifiers is being billed as both economical and reliable. The model AMP6G18-50-33 is a 6-to-18- GHz amplifier. It flaunts more than 50 dB of gain. The amplifier delivers at least 2 W of output power at 1-dB compression. Its noise figure is less than 3.5 dB. Typical current draw is less than 1.5 A from +12 VDC. The amplifier's connectors are SMA female. Other available models feature less gain, manual gain-adjustment capability, different input voltages, and various frequency ranges. Delivery is stock to 6 weeks.
