Pasternack’s New AC-Powered Low-Noise Amplifiers Offer Broadband Performance

New Line of Amplifiers Covers Popular Market Bands for Wide Range of Applications

Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter-wave products, has announced the release of a new series of AC-powered low-noise amplifiers. The ten new models complement the existing series of benchtop amplifiers with an expanded frequency range and capabilities, making them ideal for use in a wide range of applications.

Pasternack’s new AC-powered low-noise amplifiers use GaAs semiconductor technology for optimum low-noise performance and high efficiency. The designs cover broad octave bandwidths ranging from 10 MHz up to 50 GHz, with 3 dB typical noise figure and gain levels ranging from 25 to 60 dB. Broadband performance covers popular market bands including UHF, VHF, L, C, S, X, Ku, Ka and up to V band.

These AC-powered RF amplifiers use a 110 VAC to 220 VAC power supply for worldwide operation and are RoHS and REACH compliant.

The amplifiers are available in rugged MIL-grade coaxial packages with integrated heatsinks. They support SMA, 2.92 mm or 2.4 mm RF connectors. Models operate over -40°F to +185°F (-40°C to +85°C) and withstand exposure to environmental conditions that include altitude, vibration, humidity and shock.

These AC-powered low-noise amplifiers can be used on the bench in a laboratory setting or in more rugged external environmental applications.

“Our latest series of AC-powered low-noise amplifiers offer expanded capabilities and a broader frequency range than our existing offerings,” said Product Line Manager Tim Galla. “The rugged MIL-grade coaxial package designs, integrated heatsinks and support for multiple RF connectors make these amplifiers ideal for many uses, from lab settings to harsh environmental applications.”
