The NuPower 12B01A-D30 module accepts a nominal +30 dBm input drive level from the transmitter/transceiver and provides 10 dB of gain to generate 20 watts (typ) RF Output Power, across the entire operating band.
With a small form factor (3.9 cubic inches) and high efficiency operation (30% to 50%) based on state-of-the-art Gallium Nitride (GaN) power amplifier device technology, the NuPower L- & S-Band PA module is ideal for broadband RF telemetry and military communication systems that require reliability and minimal size, weight, and power consumption (SWaP).
All NuPower PAs come standard with a Micro-D connector with 18″ flying leads for interfacing to the unit. An available option for the PA is an accessory kit (p/n NW-PA-ACC-KT01), which includes a fan-cooled heat sink and an interface cable assembly with banana plug terminations for lab testing.
*Please see the NuPower 12B01A if your system needs a PA with the standard 0 dBm input drive level.
