CDI Blog For Engineers NW-PA0616-20-P RF Amplifier NW-PA0616-20-P RF Amplifier
20W Pulsed Power PA 600 MHz – 1.6 GHz Pulsed

The NW-PA0616-20-P utilizes industry leading GaN technology and cutting-edge control circuitry to create a high fidelity, high performance broadband RF amplifier capable of producing 20W of pulsed power from 600MHz to 1600MHz. The NW-PA0616-20-P only needs 1us of settling time to be ready for RF drive and amplifier shutdown will be achieved in less than 1us after the TTL gate has been removed. The NW-PA0616-20-P is suitable for use either as a final stage amplifier, or as a driver amplifier within a larger system. NW-PA0616-20-P
