Automatic Gain Control Amps Join Spectrum Microwave Line of High Performance Designs from API TechnologiesORLANDO, FL  — March 16, 2012 — API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ATNY) (“API” or the “Company”), a provider of electronic systems, subsystems, RF, and secure systems for defense, aerospace, and commercial applications, announced today a new line of customizable automatic gain control (AGC) amplifiers from its Spectrum Microwave family of products. They feature a ruggedized design, automatic output control and high RF input damage protection.
 
“These low-phase noise AGC amplifiers are ideally suited for receiver applications in rugged military environments and high performance commercial applications. They allow the user to anticipate receiver power levels and automatically adjust the output power to a more desirable level,” said Tracy Shaffer, Vice President, Spectrum Microwave Product Group of API Technologies. They can be used in multiple applications from 50MHz to 2000MHz and maintain a minimal output variation of +/- 2dB to control input power fluctuations.
 
The AGC amplifiers come in five frequency ranges (100-200MHz, 200-400MHz, 400-600MHz, 600-800MHz, and 800-1000MHz) and operate off a +5 volt supply—drawing only 125mA from -40C to +50C. Two wide bandwidth versions (500-800MHz and 1000-2000MHz) are also available. “With optional gain stages from 25dB to 40dB, this modular design is quite versatile and can be used for multiple applications,” added Shaffer.
 
Designed for rugged military environments, this new AGC amplifier line can be customized with both an optional time delay adjustment feature, as well as a phase modulation compression feature to accommodate for peak power variations. They are designed to minimize group delay with group delay performance as low as +/- 1 ns, typical.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
