Middletown, Ohio, November 30th, 2016 – NuWaves Engineering, an international Radio Frequency (RF)
and Microwave solutions provider, announced the upcoming release of the latest offering in the NuPower™
small, lightweight and high-efficiency power amplifier (PA) family of products – the 15 Watt
NuPower™ 06C09A C-band PA, which will be available in the second quarter of 2017.
The NuPower™ 06C09A will be the first in a series of PA products
using NuWaves proprietary GaN-on-SiC microwave monolithic integrated circuit (MMIC) technology. The
NuPower™ 06C09A provides saturated RF power of 15 Watts (typical) in C-band (frequency coverage from
4.5 GHz to 6.25 GHz), with an impressive 40 dB of RF gain and module efficiencies of greater than 35%.
Further, the PA's aluminum chassis features a compact size of 2.5" x 2.0" x 0.65", making it small enough
for integration into a wide variety of air- or ground-based tactical, test, or training platforms. With
an impressive size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) profile, the NuPower™ 06C09A can be used with communications
and telemetry systems to provide range extension or with electronic warfare systems for airborne electronic
attack (AEA) at low and medium altitudes, including unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
"The NuPower 06C09A PA is the first in an expansive new line of PA modules featuring NuWaves' proprietary
MMIC technology. By designing our own PA MMICs, we can target specific customer needs without relying
solely on commercially available devices," said Jeff Wells, President and CEO of NuWaves Engineering.
"We are using this technology to add higher frequency products to our lineup, with Ka-band amplifiers
on the horizon."
