Power Amplifiers

RF Power Amplifiers (PAs)

The NuPower™ series of solid state power amplifier modules is ideal for extending your communication range with OTS modules that cover VHF, UHF, L, S, and C-Band frequencies with up to 100 Watts of RF output power. Leveraging the latest Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology and market-leading design miniaturization techniques, NuPower PAs are designed to meet the demanding needs of aerospace, defense and industrial markets. NuPower’s combination of power efficiency and miniature, ruggedized packaging makes them ideal for size, weight, and power-constrained telemetry, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), and tactical communication systems applications.

NuWaves’ RF Power Amplifiers have been designed to easily integrate into any communications system. With standard model variants that accept +0 dBm (1 mW) or +30 dBm (100 mW) input drive levels, power supply voltages from +11 to +32 VDC, and interchangeable connector types, our OTS modules can be easily modified to integrate with any communications setup. If you don’t see an OTS module that is compatible with your existing setup, contact us here for a custom solution.

All NuPower PAs are designed, built and tested in-house under NuWaves’ Quality Management System (QMS) certified to AS9100:2009 and ISO 9001-2008 standards, which ensures that each product arrives on-time and defect-free. Each PA typically accepts a nominal +0 or +30 dBm RF input and is packed with robust features providing reverse- & over-voltage protection, over-current protection, and thermal shutdown for out-of-spec conditions. Each unit includes a standard 9-pin micro D connector with flying leads which provides out-of-the-box operation. An accessory kit is available as an option for every NuPower amplifier that includes a fan-cooled heatsink with associated power supply and an upgraded interface cable terminated with banana plugs.

Most models are available for same-day shipment if ordered by 3 p.m. Eastern Time. Can’t find what your system needs?
