NuWaves' HILNA CX - A Broadband Low Noise Amplifier Covering C to X Band Frequencies
Middletown, Ohio, February 21th, 2017 – NuWaves Engineering, an international Radio Frequency (RF)
and Microwave solutions provider, announces their broadband low noise amplifier covering C- to X-Band
frequencies, extending the frequency range and potential applications over which the HILNA™ family
of low noise amplifier (LNA) products can operate.
CX is the latest addition to the NuWaves' High Intercept Low Noise Amplifiers (HILNA™) family
of LNA's, covering C- to X-Band frequencies. This model features a miniature form factor of 1.2 cubic
inches, allowing for ease of integration into space-constrained systems. The HILNA™ CX delivers
over 35 dB of gain across the entire broad range of 5 GHz to 10 GHz with a noise figure of 2.5 dB and
OIP3 of +21 dBm. The HILNA™ CX's ultra-broadband coverage allows the user comprehensive spectrum
coverage within a single, miniature module. Custom solutions for this LNA module are available for systems
requiring other bandwidths, military screening, form factors, filtering, and gain.
"As an add-on to an existing communications system, the HILNA™ CX offers the systems integrator
the ability to amplify C- and X-Band signals with high linearity for higher resolution imagery and high-resolution
imaging radars for target identification and discrimination." said Jeff Wells, President and CEO of
NuWaves Engineering. "NuWaves Engineering takes pride in offering first-rate communications solutions
to the Warfighter. Our low noise power amplifiers enable greater standoff distances for unmanned aircraft
systems (UAS) and unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) applications, giving our armed forces the advantage
in hostile environments."
