Spectrum Microwave Announces a New Small Surface Mount
Filtered GPS Low Noise Amplifier that Rejects Signals
by at Least
35 dB Over the L1 Band
DE – November 21, 2008 - Spectrum Microwave introduces their
new line of Surface Mount Filtered GPS LNAs offering multiple gain stages
of 26 to 38 dB with more than 35 dB of out of band rejection at 1575.42
MHz. This new small surface mount design exhibits a low noise figure
of 1.8 dB, and operates from a 5 to 32 volt supply while only consuming
These filtered amplifiers offer a 4 pin design for easy
mounting, and the customer may select 26 dB, 32 dB or 38 dB gain options
while still maintaining a low 1.8 dB noise figure from 0°C to 70° C.
Spectrum also offers these filtered LNAs in connectorized hermetic packages
for in-line booster applications or other harsh environments.
Spectrum Microwave's high isolation, Low Noise Filtered LNAs are
ideal for a wide range of applications including Avionics, Satellite
Navigation, Marine Navigation, or Surveying and Mapping, ic systems.
The series 311 Filtered GPS LNAs are priced starting from $300 depending
on quantity and configuration, with typical delivery lead-times of 6
