NuWaves’ industry leading NuPower™ series of solid-state RF and microwave power amplifiers are designed to extend the operational range of radio applications, such as airborne and tactical military datalinks.

Our miniature and ruggedized RF power amplifier modules are built to last in harsh environments while offering superb power density and high operating efficiency, making them ideal for size, weight, and power (SWaP)-constrained applications. With a NuPower™ module, you are guaranteed best-in-class quality and performance proven through annual audits of our AS9100:2016-certified Quality Management System and over 20 years of RF and microwave engineering design experience. Our broad catalog of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) features amplifiers that provide as much as 100 W of RF output power covering frequencies up to 6 GHz.

See something you like but it doesn’t fit your exact requirements? We’re experts at providing modified custom-COTS variants of our existing products, as well as fully custom designs from concept-to-production. Select your product and reach out to our sales team to find out more.
