New Power Amplifier Accessories
Include Selections of Heat Sinks and Power Control Cable Assemblies
Irvine, California - Pasternack, a leading provider of
RF, microwave and millimeter wave products has released a new series of RF and microwave
power amplifier accessories that includes heat sinks, heat sinks with
cooling fans and power control cable assemblies. Heat sinks are devices that enhance heat
dissipation from a hot surface and are ideal for thermal management of power amplifiers in
test and measurement applications. A functioning power amplifier will generate elevated levels
of heat that needs to be properly dissipated to insure the internal circuit assembly does
not become damaged from extreme high temperature exposure. Operating at cooler temperatures
and below the maximum operational temperature ensures optimum performance and reliability
of the power amplifier will be maintained.
Pasternack offers eight different heat sink models, some of which are designated for general
purpose usage and others are configured for select power amplifier models. These heat sinks
feature finned extrusion profiles with large baseplate mounting surfaces and AC or DC power
supply options for models that support integrated cooling fans. Most models include
thermal mounting gaskets for optimal thermal flow. The general purpose heat sink models (PE15C5013
and PE15C5013F) can be used for all Pasternack power amplifier models where a heat sink is
recommended, typically 1 watt and greater. To support test and measurement applications, Pasternack
offers four power control cable assemblies that are configured for select power amplifier
models with D-sub connector interfaces.
"Our new amplifier accessories are for use in combination with a wide selection of our
power amplifier models. Designers will find these accessories extremely valuable for
use in test and system level applications to ensure that optimum performance and long-term
reliability are achieved," said Tim Galla, Product Manager at Pasternack.
