Linwave's New 50W GaN Pallet Amplifier

Linwave's New 50W GaN Pallet Amplifier

The LW10-793079 is a 50W GaN on SiC broadband power amplifier, which is designed to target the broadcasting, telecommunications, jammer, medical and other relevant markets. The amplifier operates between 20 - 520Mhz with a typical efficiency of 47%, and a typical gain of 32dB.

The design additionally includes control and monitor functionality. A built in analogue temperature sensor provides real time temperature sensing capability. This voltage can be monitored by a system level controller to switch off the power amplifier by utilising the Enable/Disable feature of the module. The power amplifier module control circuit also has an overall SHUTDOWN capability for DC energy conservation in applications where DC power consumption is managed so devices are only switched on when functionality is required. Its small footprint 51mm(W)x72mm(L)x15mm(H), allows for ease of integration into higher level modules and top level systems. This can lead to either reduced overall dimensions, or freeing up space for greater functionality.

    The Linwave X band SSPA is suitable for a wide range of high power applications. The amplifier is designed to provide high gain, low distortion, greater than 90dB of ON/OFF isolation and excellent harmonic performance in harsh environments. The output power can be switched on and off within 200ns by means of a control pin and in this state consumes only 2W. In addition the unit is protected against both poor match conditions (VSWR) and thermal overload. Typical applications are Industrial, Satcom, Aerospace and Military.
