Nuwaves Unveils 100 W L & S-Band Radio Frequency Power Amplifier Module

NuWaves Engineering has unveiled its latest NuPower small, lightweight, high-efficiency power amplifier family of products. The 100 W NuPower LS100A01 L & S-band PA will cost $3,775 per unit in quantities of one hundred and will be available this September.

The new NuPower LS100A01 provides saturated RF power of 100 Watts in the L & S-bands (frequency coverage from 1.6 GHz to 2.5 GHz), with an efficiency of up to 45%. With a nominal input drive level of 0 dBm, it offers up to 50 dB of RF gain. The PA’s aluminum chassis features improved heat dissipation characteristics for higher-temperature operation. It measures 6.5” x 4.5” x1.0” and weighs 22.6 ounces making it small enough for integration into a wide variety of air- or ground-based tactical, test, or training platforms.

With an impressive size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) profile, the LS100A01 provides significant range extension for communications systems, datalinks, and telemetry systems. It also provides added power for electronic warfare systems such as airborne electronic attack (AEA) at low, medium, or high altitudes, and its low SWAP profile makes it ideal for medium-sized unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). For the systems integrator that requires greater communications range, the PA will provide a significant improvement with its 100 W of output power.
