Solid state high power amplifier suitable for broadband mobile jamming

Richardson RFPD has announced the availability of a new solid state high power amplifier from Empower RF Systems.

The 1205/BBM3K5OEL is suitable for broadband mobile jamming, communications, general test, and band-specific applications from 500 MHz to 2700 MHz. This compact module utilizes high-power advanced GaN devices that provide excellent power density, high efficiency, wide dynamic range and low distortion.

Exceptional performance, long-term reliability and high efficiency are achieved by employing advanced broadband RF matching networks and combining techniques, EMI/RFI filters, machined housings and qualified components.

The new amplifier features instantaneous ultra-broadband performance, as well as built-in control, monitoring and protection circuits.

Additional key features of the 1205/BBM3K5OEL include:

  • Operating frequency range: 500–2700 MHz

  • Power output CW (Psat): 30 W

  • Power output @ 1 dB gain compression (P1dB): 20 W

  • Small signal gain: 48 dB

  • Small signal gain flatness (Pin = -20 dBm): +/-1.0 dB

  • Operating voltage: 28 V

  • 50-ohm input/output impedance

  • Dimensions: 6.0 x 3.0 x 1.0 inches

GaN’s Ground-Floor Opportunity
The electronics industry has a major role to play in helping to save energy, by enabling better equipment and new ways of working and living that that are more efficient and environmentally friendly. Maintaining the pace of technological progress is key, but improvements become both smaller and harder to achieve as each technology matures. We can see this trend in the development of power semiconductors, as device designers seek more complex and expensive ways to reduce switching energy and RDS(ON) against silicon’s natural limitations.
