The STDLVA-90001 from Crane Aerospace and Electronics is a Detector Log Video Amplifier (DLVA) that operates from 2 to 18 GHz. It features a dual detector amplified design with a unique amplification and summing technique. The amplifier has an operating dynamic range from -67 to +5 dBm with ± 1.5 dB linearity and a maximum tangential signal sensitivity (TSS) of -67 dBm. It has a nominal slope of 75 mV/dB which is adjustable, a rise time of 35 ns and a fall time of 400 ns. The amplifier is fully temperature compensated for superior performance.
The STDLVA-90001 is available in a fully hermetically sealed enclosure that measures 4.60 x 2.90 x 1.12 inches and has SMA-female connectors. It operates over a DC supply of +15/-15 V while consuming up to 200 mA of current.
