Pasternack expands lines of off-the-shelf connectorized RF amplifiers

Pasternack Enterprises Inc of Irvine, CA, USA (which makes passive and active RF, microwave and millimeter-wave products) says that it has significantly expanded its portfolio of connectorized RF amplifiers including high-power amplifiers, high-rel amplifiers, broadband amplifiers, limiting amplifiers, power amplifiers, low-noise amplifiers (LNAs), log amplifiers and gain blocks.

The firm’s broad lines of coaxial amplifiers are employed across the entire spectrum of commercial and military applications including use in radar, electronic warfare (EW), satcom, wireless communications, test lab instrumentation, commercial air-traffic control, antenna ranges, telecom infrastructure, and sensors. Some of the specialty amplifiers offered in the release, such as limiting amplifiers, are used to protect sensitive microwave receivers by ‘limiting’ excessive input power that could potentially create unwanted distortion or even damage the receiver, while the hi-rel amplifiers are either hermetically sealed or constructed to withstand specific military environmental specifications. Pasternack now offers 107 unique amplifier modules, all with varying performance characteristics, giving users a wide selection of components to meet application requirements.

The new RF amplifiers offer extremely broadband performance depending on application requirements. Frequencies across the amplifier line range from DC to 40GHz, while gain levels range from 10dB to 60dB, P1dB range from 2mW to 100W, and noise figures are as low as 0.8dB and gain variation is down to ±0.3dB.

The majority of the RF amplifiers offered by Pasternack are equipped with SMA female connectors, while certain high-frequency models come with 2.92mm female connectors. All of the cables and components that mate with these amplifiers are also available separately from Pasternack.

“Our fast-growing lines of active components continue to be a focal point of our product development strategy, which aims to provide our customers the most comprehensive selection of in-stock and off-the-shelf RF components in the industry,” says director of product management Michael Rachlin.

All of the new connectorized RF amplifiers are in-stock and available to ship.
