Based on the latest gallium nitride (GaN) technology, this solid state power amplifier (SSPA) module boasts high DC-to-RF power efficiency of up to 30% and micro-miniature packaging, making it ideal for size, weight, and power (SWaP)-constrained broadband RF telemetry and tactical communication systems applications.
The NuPower 12A03A Micro PA extends the communication range of a wide variety of L-band and S-band transmitters and transceivers. In fact, the NuPower 12A03A Micro PA has been tested and approved by L-3 Communications for use with its Bandit digital data link transceiver, of which the NuPower 12A03A Micro PA can effectively provide twice the range.
All NuPower PAs come standard with a Micro-D interface cable with 18″ flying leads. Available options for the PA include a +30 dBm / 1 W input drive level version (P/N: NW-PA-12A03A-D30), a fan-cooled heat sink, and an interface cable assembly with banana plug terminations for lab testing.
