Ultra wideband amplifier, 20 kHz - 18 GHz, SMA female

Main features:

  • This amplifier has a very wide band extended on six decades, high dynamic, medium power and moderate noise.
  • It can be used in a lab as preamplifier, for example on spectrum analizers where the NF is about 25-30dB, it improves the S/N ratio of about 20 dB and allows to see signals under 0.1μV.
  • It is suitable as medium power amplifier for instruments with +21dBm output or as high insulation buffer stage, or even as spare part for a final amplifier stage of RF generators and microwave sweep generators, due to its small size it can be put directly into the instrument.
  • For EMI/EMC measurements, as driver for other wide band power amplifiers.
  • For optical fiber applications for fast modulations up to 12.5 Gbps with 7.5 Vpp output and small group delay.
  • Very fast pulse amplifier, where it is required a very small recovery time even with medium level signals.
  • Frequency hopping / jamming , as antenna preamplifier, local oscillator amplifier, etc…
  • For medical, nuclear and general physics applications.
  • It has a single positive +15V 500mA power supply, the negative bias is not required.
  • It has equal performances of HP 83017A.

 

Attention: It needs to be mounted on an adequate heat sink for correct operation.
