The NuPower LS5MI01-D30 module accepts a nominal +30 dBm input drive level from the transmitter/transceiver and provides 7 dB of gain to generate at least 5 watts, and typically 7 watts, across the entire operating band.

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 LS5MI01-D30 Micro PA extends the communication range of a wide variety of L-band and S-band transmitters and transceivers. In fact, the NuPower LS5MI01-D30 Micro PA has been tested and approved by L-3 Communications for use with its Bandit digital data link transceiver, of which the NuPower LS5MI01-D30 Micro PA can effectively provide twice the range.
