Custom Designed MMIC Power Amplifier Design for High Efficiency, High Linearity C-Band Operation
Low Noise Amplifier Designs
High RF Output Power Amplifier Designs
The NuPower™ LS100A01 L- & S-Band Power Amplifier is a small, ultra-high-power solid-state power amplifier designed for CW operation that delivers a minimum of 100 watts of RF power from 2300 MHz to 2500 MHz to boost signal power levels of data links and transmitters for communications range extension, electronic warfare (e.g. electronic attack), etc.
Based on state-of-the-art Gallium Nitride (GaN) device technology, the NuPower LS100A01 provides a compelling option for size, weight and power (SWaP) constrained RF telemetry and military communication systems given its 29 cubic inch, 22.6 ounce enclosure and 45% DC power efficiency.
High Power Amplifier Design for Commercial Cell Base Station Communications
Power Amplifier Linearizer Module (PALM)
An applique that improved the linearity of a high-efficiency power amplifier design while minimizing its required power back-off in support of amplitude-modulated waveforms such as OFDM, QAM, etc. Requiring no manual adjustments, the Power Amplifier Linearizer Module’s (PALM) adaptive correction maintains optimal linearity over amplifier temperature drift, power output, and other impairments
Available from frequencies from VHF trough 4 GHz, the PALM module is the ideal solution for linearizing Power Amplifiers regardless of their topology: class A, AB, and Doherty or device technology: GaN, GaAs, LDMOS. The typical improvement in adjacent channel power rejection (shoulder levels) is 12 to 20 dB depending on the modulation and signal bandwidth.
With a power consumption of less than one watt, the Power Amplifier Linearizer Module module adds little overhead to battery operated system. Also, its miniature size (2.50” x 1.75” x 0.75” ) is well suited for integration in compact amplifier systems.
NuWaves’ RF bidirectional amplifier design experience includes:
Linear S-Band Bidirectional Amplifier Design
UHF Bidirectional Amplifier
This bidirectional amplifier is ideal for extending the communication range of half-duplex transceivers with constant-envelope waveforms (i.e. PSK- and FSK-based modulations, such as SOQPSK and GFSK), and generates 10 Watts of RF transmit power. The module accepts a +5 dBm input level and provides 35 dB of transmit gain, all while operating with 30% or better power efficiency at most frequencies. With a small form factor (3.8 cubic inches) and state-of-the-art Gallium Nitride (GaN) power amplifier device technology, the NuPower Xtender VHF/UHF Bidirectional Amplifier module is ideal for broadband RF telemetry.
Miniature C-Band Bidirectional Amplifier
5-Month development of a C-Band Bidirectional Amplifier with a 3.57″ x 2.57″ x 0.50″ and 2.6 oz. form factor capable of providing 10 Watts of RF output power from 4400 to 5100 MHz.
