Windfreak Technologies Intros a 0.5-6 GHz Power Amplifier w/Gain Control

Windfreak Technologies Intros a Broadband
1 Watt Power Amplifier with Gain Control

The Windfreak Technologies AmpNV is a 50 MHz to 6 GHz RF Power Amplifier capable of supplying up to 1 Watt of RF power. Gain is settable with pushbuttons on the device or with the included open source LabView software. Gain is adjustable across a 31.5 dB range in 1/2 dB steps for up to 35 dB of total gain. Device settings can be remembered during power down for stand-alone operation.

The amplifier runs off of DC power in the range of 15 - 28 V and draws around 5 watts. Dimensions are 2.75" wide x 2.15" deep x 1.95" tall (7.0 x 5.46 x 4.95 cm) not including mounting tabs and connectors.

Compare this unit to other solutions at higher costs. The AmpNV has better performance and many more features. We've also invested hundreds of man hours on open source software that you get to build upon for highly custom applications. Some applications include: wireless communications systems, microwave point to point backhaul radios, Software Defined Radio (SDR), radar, Automated Test Equipment (ATE), EMC - radiated immunity pre-compliance testing, electronic warfare (EW) and hobbyist radio development. For orders over 10 units discounts will apply. Request a quote via this Web Form . Emails will be answered within 24 hours.

Windfreak Technologies AmpNV ChassisThe software is easy to install and use. It can control multiple devices based on factory programmed serial numbers. This software was written in LabView and the open source code is included so that you can modify and enhance any way you see fit for your own use. Please do not distribute. If you don't own LabView, you will also get an executable that will install standalone and run on a PC. If you want to write your own software, it is best to get LabView and reverse engineer the Windfreak LabView source code. LabView is available with a free 1 month trial from National Instruments. All source code is sent on CD "saved as" using the latest version of LabView Basic. For programmers, the device is easy to talk to via 1 simple command character followed program data. For example, setting gain is done by opening the COM port and sending the characters "a63" (without the quotes) for max gain (around 30 dB) or "a0" for minimum gain, and then closing the COM port.

    Kirt Blattenberger,

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 ...
