Wide Band Power Amplier

Product Name

20 W, 50 ÷ 1500MHz wide band Power Driver P/N : LS-ASS-005

General Description

This linear power amplifier has been designed to cover the 50 ÷ 1500 radio band offering a single, unsurpassed solution for high power amplifier designs. The amplifier is based on the latest generation of RFMD RF3931, 30W GaN wide band power amplifier, drive by RFMD SHF-0289 1W GaAs HFet.
A 8bit/64MHz microcontroller, acquire all working voltages, currents, and temperatures acting bias control, protection and monitoring function. All the working parameter are available through serial port supporting various kind of protocols.
