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 ...

7 GHz, DVB Linear RF Amplifier
The TA1030 is a Class AB GaN SSPA that produces linear power from 6400 to 7200 MHz. Designed for Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) industry, this amplifier produces 10W of 16 QAM COFDM with skirts that are 30 dBc or greater. The amplifier also features our versatile DC supply (VDS) which accepts a DC input of +9 to +36V. The amplifier produces 60 dB of linear gain with an input VSWR of 1.5:1. Features include forward power detection, over/under and reverse voltage protection and can switch between on and off in < 1usec. A tri-color status LED and an integrated heatsink are also available.
L-Band and S-Band Upconverter
The TUC1001 is an upconverter used in digital microwave transmitters. The intermittent frequency (IF) is 900 MHz while the RF output can range from high L-Band to high S-Band. The RF output power is +1 dBm when an analog signal is used and -9 dBm when a digital signal is used. Local Oscillator (LO) leakage is -13 dBc and spurious signals are -60 dBc in-band and -20 dBc out-of-band. The unit measures 1.6 x 1.5 x 0.4 inches, runs off of +15V and has female SMA connectors for all 3 ports. The module adds to Triad's family of products outside of amplifiers and provides us the expertise needed for our other products such as frequency translating amplifiers (FTA), up-down-converters, mixers, filters, signal sources and sub-systems.
5.3 - 5.9 GHz Bi-Directional Power Amplifier
The TTRM1090 is a high linearity GaAs FET bi-directional SSPA suitable for use with any modulation and signal type. It is currently utilized in UAV data links and long range point-point COFDM video links. High speed T/R switching and sequencing of the PA, LNA, and switch driver circuitry is performed by an on-board CPLD, where switching timing can be adjusted in firmware based on system requirements. The transmit section produces over 25 Watts of BPSK power, and 5 Watts of 64 QAM. The unit also features a manual digital gain setting and a three color status LED on the front panel that shows if the SSPA is in transmit or receive mode, or if an alarm condition exists. The amplifier housing is weatherproofed per the guidelines of IP66. Other frequency bands including 4.4 - 5.0 and 5.0 - 5.3 GHz bands are available.
