Amplifier Technology Press Release - April 18, 2011
Amplifier Technology Intros a Pocket-Sized Broadband Amplifier with a Huge Frequency Range - 20 MHz to 6 GHz
18th April, Bristol, UK -
Amplifier Technology Ltd has developed a new, compact broadband
amplifier, model number 8790, which operates at the higher frequencies used by WiMAX, 3G and 4G phones.
The 8790 can be integrated into a variety of systems, for different applications. It is suitable for jamming
or for laboratory testing, or could be used to drive other RF devices.
Amplifier Technology has designed
this amplifier to be compact, light and easily portable whilst achieving exceptional RF performance. The GaN
technology used in the design results in a massive frequency range from 20 MHz and 6.0 GHz, with a guaranteed
minimum saturated output power of 10 Watts and a minimum efficiency of 15% at 10 Watts.
Measuring just 65
x 120 x 25mm and weighing less than 250g, the 8790 is one of the smallest amplifiers available on the market with
this specification. It compliments the other counter IED amplifiers, the 8778 (30W, 0.5-2.5GHz) and the 8780 (25W,
2-6GHz) currently produced by Amplifier Technology.
