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

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.
