Spectrum Microwave Press Release, 12-9-2008
New Small Surface Mount Filtered GPS Low
Noise Amplifier Rejects Signals by at Least 35 dB Over the L1 Band
Delmar, DE – December 9, 2008 - Spectrum Microwave
introduces its 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 77 mA.
These filtered amplifiers offer a 4 pin design for easy mounting
and customer selected 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, Filtered LNAs are ideal
for a wide range of applications including Avionics, Satellite Navigation,
Marine Navigation, or Surveying and Mapping systems. The series
310 Filtered GPS LNAs are priced starting from $300 depending on
quantity and configuration, with typical delivery lead-times of
