March 15, 2013 Press Release
PMI Model No.
PE2-1020-R518-12-SFF is a low noise amplifier that offers a positive gain slope versus frequency.
This type of amplifier is useful when trying to equalize frequency flatness over a broad bandwidth.
This model provides 10 dB of gain at 500 MHz and 20 dB of gain at 18 GHz.
The noise figure is 10 dB at 500 MHz and 9 dB at 18 GHz. The OP1dB is +14 dBm
minimum and the maximum VSWR is 2.5:1. The operating voltage is +15 VDC and the current
draw is 140 mA typical. This model is supplied in PMI's standard PE2 housing. Other gain
levels and frequency ranges are available.
