M/A-COM Inc., a business unit of Tyco Electronics, has release its family of Ka-band triplers, X-band variable gain amplifiers and Ka-band power amplifiers that boast an inventive weight and space saving design that utilizes the latest advances in housing materials for the military and avionics market.

Members of the Ka-Band connectorized variable gain amplifiers include the MAAMML0016 (24-30GHz) and maamml0017 (30-36GHz), which are high reliability Ka-band connectorized amplifiers. Built-in circuitry ensures that power supply sequencing can be in any order, for both power-up and power-down. The MAAMML0018 (8-12GHz) is a high reliability X-band variable gain amplifier. A variable attenuator is followed by an X-band amplifier. This allows total unit gain to be adjustable over a >28dB range, from an applied control voltage.

The MAAMML0019 (8-10GHz to 24-30GHz), MAAMML0020 (9-11GHz to 27-33GHz) and MAAMML0021 (10-12GHz to 30-36GHz) are high reliability X to Ka-band triplers. These units consist of a tripler followed by a Ka-band amplifier and band pass filter (BPF). The amplifier restores output signal strength and the BPF reduces out of band products.

The MAAMML0016, MAAMML0017, MAAMML0018, MAAMML0019, MAAMML0020 and MAAMML0021, available through M/A-COM's direct field sales force, are also available as space qualified versions. Additionally, alternative frequency ranges, gain, output power and supply rail configurations are available.
