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 ...

Irvine, CA - Pasternack, a leading provider of in-stock and ready to ship RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, announces the release of new affordable coaxial-packaged RF amplifiers. Both low noise and gain block amplifiers are offered and display excellent performance covering wide octave frequency bands from 9 kHz to 3 GHz.
All of these new amplifiers from Pasternack provide an outstanding value and are all priced less than $500.00 USD for a single unit. These products provide engineers a convenient and economical source of in-stock and ready to ship coaxial RF amplifier solutions. These devices are also perfectly suited for a variety of applications including military communications, electronic warfare, SATCOM, fiber optic communication systems, wireless base stations, medical patient monitoring systems and university R&D labs.
Pasternack’s newest families of RF amplifiers have P1dB levels up to +23, low VSWR and are unconditionally stable. Many of these amplifier designs utilize advanced GaAs PHEMT semiconductors for highly linear performance and high efficiency. These amplifiers exhibit outstanding noise figure levels as low as 0.5 dB and high IP3 linearity up to +37 dBm. Single DC Positive Voltage supply ranges from +12 to +15 Vdc, while bias current ranges from 40 mA to 190 mA. The 50 ohm hybrid circuits require no external matching components and are enclosed in rugged metal packages with SMA connectors making them environmentally sealed from harsh elements. Designs perform across the full operational temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.
"Our new cost-effective amplifier solutions provide our customers an excellent value considering the performance specifications and capabilities of these devices all offered from stock," says Tim Galla, Product Manager of Active Components at Pasternack. "LNAs and gain blocks are integral parts in many RF/microwave systems and this portfolio will meet and exceed the needs of many of our customers’ requirements."
A leader in RF products since 1972, Pasternack is an ISO 9001:2008 certified manufacturer and supplier that offers the industry's largest selection of passive and active RF, microwave and millimeter wave products available for same-day shipping.
