API Technologies’ 2-20 GHz Broadband Amplifier – Model BXHF1084

API Technologies Corp., a provider of high performance RF/microwave, power, and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, today announced the addition of a new multi-octave broadband amplifier, model BXHF1084, to its growing family of standard and configurable RF/microwave products. With its high frequency capabilities and one of the industry’s smallest footprints, the product offers OEMs competitive advantage and faster time to market.

The model BXHF1084 amplifier provides S, C, X, and Ku band operation in a single amplifier module. Its compact size, laser-welded housing and high gain design (26dB typical) make it ideally suitable for a variety of commercial and military applications, including VSAT, SATCON, point-to-point, multi-point, radar, and communications.

The broadband amplifier features an internal voltage regulator allowing utilization with a wide range of available power supplies and a small form factor, which minimizes volume for improved design flexibility in the next-level assembly. Additionally, the amplifier offers a single positive bias eliminating the need for negative rail or special power-up sequencing.

The model BXHF1084 is configurable without additional engineering charges. The product is RoHS compliant and available worldwide.

“This new broadband amplifier fills an industry need for rugged, high performance amplifiers designed specifically for high frequency applications,” said Walter Witt, Product Line Manager, RF/Microwave & Microelectronics (RF2M US), API Technologies. “Furthermore, as a standard product we are able to offer our customers one of industry’s best lead times with customization options to meet their specific requirements.”
