The AMP17001300038L from Becker Nachrichtentechnik is a Power Amplifier Module (PAM) that operates from 1.7 to 13 GHz. It delivers a saturated output power of 6.3 W (38 dBm) with a gain of 38 dB and has a noise figure of 3 dB. The amplifier requires a DC supply voltage of 32 V and consumes up to 2 A of current. It offers reverse polarity protection for the supply against possible damages while installation and has an internal self-test function that monitors current consumption & module temperature.
This PAM has internal filters and low noise voltage supplies that provide high suppression against spurious. It uses power transistors with enough headroom to make the amplifier module robust against reverse power and therefore robust against loads at the output which are not matched.
The AMP17001300038L has an LED status indicator for DC power, device condition and can also indicate its health status using floating relay contacts during remote operations. It is available in a milled aluminium enclosure that measures 105 x 20 x 90 mm with SMA-Female connectors and provides shielding to avoid EMI influences caused by radio signals. The amplifier is suitable for research and development, cellular, Wi-Fi, military, intelligence service and jamming applications. It is designed to be mounted on a heat sink for passive cooling.
