Products Modules SSPA 1.0-2.5-50

Aethercomm Model Number SSPA 1.0-2.5-50 is a high power, broadband platform, Gallium Nitride (GaN) RF amplifier that operates from 1.0 to 2.5 GHz. This unit will operate down to 800 MHz with no degradation in performance. This PA is ideal for broadband military platforms as well as commercial applications because it is robust and offers high power over a multi-octave bandwidth. This RF module employs temperature compensation to keep the gain constant over the temperature extremes. The power response changes by a ±0.75 dB typical over temperature. This high frequency power amplifier operates with a base plate temperature of 85C with no degradation in the MTBF for the GaN devices inside.

It is packaged in a modular, robust housing that is approximately 2.5" (W) by 6.4" (L) by 1.0 (H)". This amplifier has a typical P1dB of 35 watts at room temperature. Saturated output power across the band is typically 50 watts. Noise figure at room temperature is 8.0dB typical. This amplifier offers a typical gain of 50 dB with a typical gain flatness of ± 2.0dB. Typical OIP3 is 57 dBm. Input and Output VSWR is 2.0:1 maximum. Class AB current is approximately 4.0 amps typical employing a +28.0 Vdc supply. This PA operates from a 27.0 Vdc to 29.0 Vdc input voltage. This SSPA includes an external DC blanking command that enables and disables the module in 20 uSec typical.

Standard features include over/under voltage protection, reverse polarity protection and internal DC-DC converter. The output is fully protected from an open or short circuit presented to this port with no damage. Input/output RF connectors are SMA Female. DC and Command voltages are accessible via a nine pin DSUB connector. This amplifier operates from -40C to +85C base plate.
