UK, 1st May 2012 - Amplifier Technology Ltd, a UK company designing and manufacturing broadband power amplifiers,
announces the latest addition to its product range: the 8817 broadband amplifier which operates across a huge
spectrum, covering all frequencies between 0.5GHz and 2.5GHz.
The 8817 amplifier is suitable for Electronic
Counter Measures and counter IED applications, and is likely to be integrated with other EW equipment on vehicles
or aircraft such as helicopters and UAVs.
The 8817 is a GaN HEMT amplifier, built to an advanced design
which packs more power and performance into a small unit with a small footprint and provides a greater power
density. The amplifier weighs just 570g and measuring 188 x 91.5 x 21.3 mm.
However, the amplifier's
compact size has not compromised its performance - it provides a minimum saturated output power (P-Sat) of 50
watts over the full frequency range. its gain is typically 48 dB while the harmonics are low, at -16dBc
While the 8817 is the latest in Amplifier Technology's range of commercial, off-the-shelf amplifiers, the company
also provides bespoke amplifier design services and builds amplifiers tailored to OEM needs and customers'
Amplifier Technology, based near Bristol, is a specialist
amplifier design company, and was one of the first to offer a range of highly efficient GaN amplifiers. The
company offers a wide range of off-the-shelf models and a bespoke design service to develop RF components for
non-standard requirements. The company can create products with core capability of DC-40 GHz and higher, and high
Amplifier Technology has delivered a number of large programmes for military and commercial customers. Please
