Description

Millitech offers a very high power X6 active multiplier chain assembly. The assembly consists of an AMC-10-RFHB0, a full-band isolator and a wideband GaN amplifier.

By combining our revolutionary GaN amplifier with our active multiplier chain, these assemblies offer high power output covering 75-100 GHz.

The frequency stability at the output frequency is the same as that of the input source when measured in ppm. The output phase noise will degrade by the (20 Log N), where N is the multiplication factor of the active multiplier chain.

The series AMC can be used with test equipment or tunable transmitters and receivers. When combined with a microwave synthesized source covering 12.5 to 18.4 GHz, these multiplier assemblies provide an inexpensive and high performance millimeter-wave phase locked source.

Other combinations of power and frequency are available. Contact Millitech sales with your specific requirements.

See our Series AMC for a complete line of active multiplier chains covering 26-220 GHz.
