Middletown, Ohio, May 5, 2015 – NuWaves Engineering, an international Radio Frequency (RF) and Microwave solutions provider, today announced a new linear bidirectional amplifier (BDA) for OFDM radios at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) Unmanned Systems 2015 Trade Show. The NuPower Xtender™ 12E06A model is a broadband, small, lightweight and cost-effective solution for high-performance S-band Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) transceivers with Mobile Ad hoc Networking (MANET) and/or Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output (MIMO) technology.
The Xtender 12E06A bidirectional amplifier operates across the 1980 to 2500 MHz range and generates 12 Watts of RF power for QPSK modulated signals, 6.3 Watts for 16QAM, and 2.5 Watts for 64QAM. With 25 dB of RF transmit gain and 12 dB of receive gain, the Xtender 12E06A bidirectional amplifier is designed to operate seamlessly with several commercially-available OFDM transceivers. Further, at 4.00” x 2.00” x 0.65”, the bidirectional amplifier’s ruggedized aluminum chassis is compact , and light enough for integration into a wide variety of small aerial, sea and ground-based platforms, including Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (SUAS).
“The Xtender 12E06A is a high-performance, robust solution to extend the range of S-band OFDM radios, which are increasingly popular in military and government applications,” said Ryan Canning, Director of Business Development for NuWaves Engineering. “We’re building on a successful track record of developing and fielding miniature RF power amplifiers for the most demanding customers in the world.”
NuWaves Engineering is a premier supplier of Radio Frequency (RF) and embedded systems products and solutions for DoD, non-DoD government, and industrial customers. An RF engineering powerhouse, NuWaves offers a wide range of engineering design services focused on wireless communications, as well as a complete line of commercially available module-level products, such as wideband RF upconverters and downconverters, high-efficiency miniature solid state power amplifiers, high intercept low noise amplifiers, miniature RF filters, and fiber optic RF distribution modules.
