IRVINE, Calif.—Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand and a provider of RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave products, reported that it broadened its line of high-power amplifiers engineered for market applications in VHF, UHF, L, S, C, X and Ku bands.

The new series of high-power amplifiers is said to provide saturated output power levels ranging from 10 watts to 200 watts. It is designed with rugged, military-grade, coaxial packages that offer an operational temperature range from -40 to +185 degrees Fahrenheit, Pasternack said in a release.

Pasternack’s high-power amplifiers cover broadband frequencies ranging from 1.5 MHz to 18 GHz and include gallium nitride (GaN) and laterally-diffused metal oxide silicon (LDMOS) semiconductor designs. Gallium nitride models exhibit high efficiency in a smaller package, and their performance benefits are the most desirable for broadband applications, the company said.

Highly efficient Class AB designs are reported to feature 50-ohm input and output matched ports, built-in control and protection circuits, and D-sub connectors for DC bias, command control, and monitoring functions.

“These broadband, high-power amplifiers are ideal for test-and-measurement applications, as well as transmitting RF signals for radar, military radio, and telecommunication systems,” said Tim Galla, senior product manager, in the release.

The new high-power amplifiers are “in stock and ready for immediate shipment with no minimum order quantity,” the company said in the release.

Pasternack is an ISO 9001:2015-certified manufacturer and supplier that offers a large selection of active and passive RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave products available for same-day shipping. Infinite Electronics, a Warburg Pincus portfolio company, offers a broad range of components, assemblies, and wired and wireless connectivity components. The company serves the aerospace and defense, industrial, government, consumer electronics, instrumentation, medical, and telecommunications markets.
