IED counter measures RF power amplifiers available in UK
Now available in the UK from Link Microtek is the first of MtronPTI’s new line of solid-state RF power amplifier modules, the PA1016, which uses linear GaN technology with fast switching to deliver an output power of 35W across a wide frequency band of 2 to 6GHz. Primarily aimed at military mobile applications such as jamming systems for countering the threat of IEDs, the compact new amplifier module is housed in a rugged, sealed case and features built-in monitoring and control circuits to protect it against load VSWR, input overdrive, over/under supply voltage and output overcurrent. The Class AB power amplifier operates from a 30VDC supply and provides excellent microwave performance, with a minimum power gain of 46dB, a gain flatness of 3dB peak-to-peak across the band and typical 2-tone intermodulation of -30dBc. Equipped with SMA female connectors for RF input and output and a 9-way D-sub connector for power and control signals, the module has overall dimensions of only 188 x 92 x 27mm excluding connectors and weighs just 825g. Operating temperature range is specified as -20 to 75degC.
