The DM-X300-01 from Diamond Microwave is an X-band GaN pulsed power amplifier that operates from 8.4 to 9.6 GHz. It provides a peak output power of 300 Watts with a gain of 55 dB and PAE of 30%. This amplifier has been developed as an alternative to traveling wave tube (TWT) amplifiers and is ideal for use in defense, aerospace and communication applications.
The DM-X300-01 includes key parameter monitoring with self-protect functions activated if the SSPA detects that the VSWR threshold, duty cycle or current limits have been exceeded. It will also alert the host system when a low output power condition is detected or when temperature limits have been exceeded. An interface to the host system is provided by Ethernet connectivity.
This amplifier is available in a module that measures 220 x 150 x 41mm with SMA/N type connectors.
