The APT-010180 is a portable test amplifier than operates from 1 GHz to 18 GHz. RF and microwave test set-ups require some positive gain. Typical modular systems amplifier packages do not always lend themselves to frequent handing on the bench. This neatly designed and very adaptable unit brings a robust solution to a potentially costly component replacement problem. It provides 20 dBm of p1dB with a 35 dB gain. Its rugged housing is suited to the busy laboratory environment. The amplifier is available with SMA, Type N or TNC RF connectors in stainless steel with IP rating of IP66/67.
