Ohio, August 24, 2017 – NuWaves Engineering,
an international Radio Frequency (RF) and Microwave solutions provider, announces the completion
of the IRaD phase for their newest miniaturized 10 watt C-band bidirectional amplifier (BDA),
to be added to their line of NuPower Xtender™ bidirectional amplifier products. This module
will be priced at $2,900/ea. in quantities of one hundred, and will be available Q4 2017.
The NuPower Xtender™ C10RX01 and C10RX02 BDA modules, part number NW-BA-C-10- RX01 and
NW-BA-C-10-RX02, follows the recent release of both the 20 W C-Band Power Amplifier (NuPower™
C20R01) and the 20 W C-Band bidirectional amplifier (NuPower Xtender™
C20RX01) 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 Xtender™ C10RX01 and C10RX02 both provide saturated RF output power of 10 Watts
in transmit mode and 10 dB of gain in receive mode across the C-band frequency range of 4.4
to 5.1 GHz. Both modules are designed to accept a +30 dBm input signal, making them compatible
with common datalinks that typically provide a 1 W output. The NuPower Xtender™ C10RX01 requires
a manual transmit/receive (T/R) control input signal, while the NuPower Xtender™ C10RX02 offers
an autosense T/R control mode where the transmit/receive condition is determined automatically.
The BDA'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.
"These latest bidirectional amplifier modules provide the system integrator with additional
options for enhanced operability across multiple scenarios in 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 provide a full spectrum of solutions in support
of the Warfighter."
