10W class A amplifier designed for 1 to 525MHz broadband operation

The IE-PA-1-550-40A is a 10W class A amplifier designed for 1 to 525MHz broadband operation. This amplifier uses advanced broadband matching techniques and high reliability gold mosfets to achieve high linearity, extreme ruggedness and broadband operation. This design is stable from 22 to 30 volts and it can withstand infinite VSWR at 10W CW making it ideal for laboratory use.

Applications:

  • Signal generator source boost
  • Network analyzer source boost
  • TV/FM/Communications driver stage
  • Laboratory research
