Product Description

The NuPower XtenderTM 12B04A-07-C030 is a small, lightweight, and power-efficient bidirectional amplifier ideal for extending the communication range of half-duplex L- or S-band transceivers running constant-envelope or near-constant-envelope waveforms. The bidirectional amplifier generates 15 Watts (typ) of RF power from 1625 to 2500 MHz in transmit mode and the integrated low-noise amplifier provides a minimum of 19 dB of gain (typ) in receive mode.

Based on the latest gallium nitride (GaN) technology, the Xtender offers greater than 30% power efficiency at most frequencies and its compact size makes it ideal for integration into space-constrained platforms. Accepting a +5 dBm RF input, the Xtender provides 37 dB of gain. The Xtender also features overvoltage and reverse-voltage protection and operates over a wide temperature range of -30 to +60 °C.
