Pasternack intros broadband, high gain LNAs
Pasternack Enterprises Inc. has announced a family of low noise amplifiers (LNA) capable of high gain and broadband performance between 9KHz and 18GHz. According to the company, the devices can be used in various military and commercial applications.
In Pasternack's latest release, a total of fourteen LNAs are offered. These devices provide customers with a choice of noise figures, gain levels, frequency ranges and power outputs depending on the intended use. The LNA category exhibits excellent broadband performance, noise figures between 0.8-3dB, gain levels from 25-50dB, gain flatness from ±0.75dB to ±1.25dB and power output levels (P1dB or Psat) between 10dBm and 18dBm. The superior performance of these low noise amplifiers is achieved using a hybrid microwave IC design and advanced GaAs PHEMT technology, noted Pasternack.
The LNAs are connectorised SMA modules that are unconditionally stable and include built-in voltage regulation, bias sequencing and reverse bias protection for added reliability. Depending on the intended application of these RF amplifiers, both hermetically sealed and non-hermetically sealed versions are available. The LNAs are fully matched internally for input and output at 50Ω, which eliminates the customers need for any sensitive external RF tuning components.
All fourteen LNAs from Pasternack are in-stock and available to ship.
