Component Distributors continuously works to facilitate design success and faster time-to-market. An excellent example of this effort can be found in the NW-PA2731-130-P. This product, which custom-designed for a customer delivers 140W of pulsed power in the S-band. The PA pulse settling time is remarkably low, at 1 microsecond, allowing for rapid pulsing of the amplifier. The amplifier covers the 2700-3100 MHz band, and boasts an overall efficiency of 46% for the entire lineup (~52 dB of gain). It is contained in an aluminum housing and is very compact at 5”x7”x1.25”. The amplifier operates from a single 50V supply and provides both forward and reflected power monitoring.
This custom design, which incorporates the Sumitomo SGN2731-130H-R GaN power transistor, is available as a standard product from CDI.
