Description

Millitech’s series pulsed PAM power amplifiers utilize advanced GaAs and GaN MMICs to obtain high output power in the 33 to 110 GHz frequency range.

Each pulsed amplifier has internal bias circuitry that generates gate control voltages, provides proper voltage sequencing and incorporates reverse voltage protection. Positive and negative biases are required.

The standard amplifier interfaces include waveguide interfaces ranging from WR-28 to WR-10. Custom frequency pulsed amplifiers not listed are available upon request, often with the same lead time and no NRE.

Millitech’s pulsed amplifiers offer high gain and output power. An SMA TTL input allows for pulsed operation. Amplifiers may also be run in CW mode with the pulsed input disconnected.

Coupled outputs are available for some models.

The broad bandwidth and high power of the series pulsed PAM power amplifier makes them perfect for a wide range of applications including transceivers and upconverters, EW systems, instrumentation, and radar systems. For applications that don’t require the pulse feature, please refer to series AMP and LNA
