Middletown, Ohio, June 21st, 2017 – NuWaves Engineering,
an international Radio Frequency (RF) and Microwave solutions provider, announces the completion
of the IRaD phase for their miniaturized C-band bidirectional amplifier (BDA), to be added
to their line of NuPower XtenderTM bidirectional amplifier products.
The NuPower Xtender™ C20RX01 BDA module, part number
NW-BA-C-20-RX01, follows the recent releases of both the C-Band Low Noise
Amplifier (HILNATM CX) and the C-Band Power Amplifier (NuPowerTM C20R01) as NuWaves looks
to push their presence and expertise to higher-frequency applications. This BDA offers the
performance of a traditional power amplifier coupled with a low noise amplifier for receive
mode, providing an amplification solution in one miniaturized package for half-duplex transceivers.
The NuPower XtenderTM C20RX01 provides saturated RF output power of 20 Watts in transmit
mode and 15 dB of gain in receive mode across the C-band frequency range of 4.4 GHz to 4.9
GHz. For complex waveforms that require a linear PA, the C20RX01 has an error vector magnitude
(EVM) of 4% at 2 Watts of output power. The NuPower C20RX01 has been designed to operate flawlessly
with constant envelope, GFSK, OFDM, and LTE-based waveforms, allowing maximum range extension
for communication links that utilizes these waveform types.
With a nominal input drive level of 0 dBm, the NuPowerTM C20RX01 offers an impressive 30
dB of RF gain. Further, the PA's aluminum chassis features improved heat dissipation characteristics
for higher-temperature operation, and at a compact size it is small enough for integration
into a wide variety of air- or ground-based tactical, test or training platforms.
"We are excited to offer this bidirectional amplifier module. This product is targeted
at the military communications market, including unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), filling
the gap in the market for small bidirectional amplifiers," said Jeff Wells, President and
CEO of NuWaves Engineering. "The NuWaves' team takes pride in our ability to support our
clients with best-in-class RF solutions, rapidly fulfilling the ever-changing needs of the
