-- Broadband and High Gain Low Noise Amplifiers Announced by Pasternack
May 15, 2014 – Irvine, CA - Pasternack Enterprises, Inc., an industry leading manufacturer
and supplier of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, releases a new family of
low noise amplifiers (LNA) capable of high gain and broadband performance between 9 kHz and
18 GHz which are widely used across the spectrum of military and commercial applications.
Pasternack's latest release, a total of fourteen new low noise amplifiers are offered. These low
noise amplifiers provide customers with a choice of noise figures, gain levels, frequency ranges
and power outputs depending on the intended use. The new
LNA category exhibits excellent broadband performance from 9 kHz to 18 GHz, noise figures
between 0.8 dB to 3 dB, gain levels from 25 dB to 50 dB, gain flatness from ±0.75 dB to ±1.25
dB and power output levels (P1dB or Psat) between 10 dBm and 18 dBm. The superior performance
of these low noise amplifiers is achieved using a hybrid microwave integrated circuit design and
advanced GaAs PHEMT technology.
The new low noise amplifiers from Pasternack are connectorized SMA modules that are unconditionally
stable and include built-in voltage regulation, bias sequencing, and reverse bias protection for
added reliability. Depending on the intended application of these RF amplifiers, both hermetically
sealed and non-hermetically sealed versions are available. The low noise amplifiers are fully
matched internally for input and output at 50 ohm, which eliminates the customers need for any
sensitive external RF tuning components.
“Low noise amplifiers are an essential component used in a broad range of military and commercial
applications,” says Michael Rachlin, Active RF/microwave Products Manager at Pasternack. “Our
aggressive active component growth strategy is intended to satisfy market demand for a wide selection
of amplifiers that are immediately available off the shelf, thus eliminating extended lead times
when the customer’s need arises.”
All fourteen low noise amplifiers from Pasternack are in-stock and available to ship now. You
