Triad RF Systems, a leading manufacturer and developer of high-performance RF/Microwave amplifiers, has announced the launch of TA1167, a compact GaAs RF power amplifier module that delivers over 5 W peak power from 6400 to 7200 MHz (other bands available). Designed for wireless communications applications that require a boost in linear RF power, the 6 GHz TA1167 is now available to order.
The TA1167 incorporates circuits that produce over 1 W of linear COFDM power when amplifying a +19 dBm signal. It has gain of 11 dB, return loss of -10 dB (2:1 VSWR), rise and fall times of less than 1 µs, and accepts a maximum RF input of +27 dBm.
Protected from high, low, and reverse DC bias, thermal overload, and high impedance mismatch, the amplifier will operate over a temperature range of -10o to +85o C and altitude up to 30,000 ft.
The TA1167 uses SMA female connectors for the RF input/output and a 9 Pin Micro D-Sub for the single +12 VDC supply that can range from +9 to +14 V. The amplifier draws 1.6 A (100% duty cycle), measures only 3.75 x 1.9 x 0.5 in., and weighs less than 3 oz.
