NW-BA-LS-10-S01 Image

The NW-BA-LS-10-S01 from NuWaves is a Bidirectional Amplifier that operates from 1 to 2.5 GHz. The Tx side, delivers a saturated output power of 20 W with a gain of 38 dB. On the Rx side, it provides a gain of 14 dB with a noise figure of 2 dB and has a P1dB of 16.2 dBm. The amplifier is based on the latest gallium nitride (GaN) technology and offers 38% power efficiency at most frequencies. It has a Tx/Rx mode switching time of less than 2 µs with auto-sensing or a manual Tx/Rx line. The amplifier requires a DC supply of 28 V and draws less than 3.5 A of current. It is ideal for extending the communication range of half-duplex L- or S-band transceivers running constant-envelope or near-constant-envelope waveforms.

The Xtender LS10S01 also supports adjacent radio frequency bands, such as the 900 MHz Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) band, at lower peak power levels. It has over-voltage and reverse-voltage protection. The amplifier is available in a module that measures 3.00 x 2.00 x 0.65 inches with SMA-female connectors and is suitable for use in unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) group 2 and group 3, unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), RF communication systems, and software-defined radios.
