Pasternack released a new line of bidirectional amplifiers that are used to transmit high-resolution signals while amplifying Rx signals with advanced low-noise amplifier to produce the highest possible data rates.
Pasternack has added four new models to its existing line of bidirectional amplifiers, making a total of six different models now available. This portfolio consists of a comprehensive offering covering popular VHF/UHF, L, S, C and broadband RF frequency bands that range from 0.225 megahertz to 5.875 MHz. These rugged, mil-grade designs are in compact, environmentally-sealed, SMA-connectorized packages and feature either quick-connect or D-SUB connectors for DC and control functions.
The designs in this line offer sensitive receiver performance with 2.5-decibel noise figures. Some also incorporate highly efficient GaN semiconductor technology. Transmit (Tx) output Psat levels range from 8 to 20 watts that boost performance of data links and transmitters. These models feature manual or auto-sensing transmit/receive (T/R) control with fast switching times of 1-2 microseconds.
