Pasternack Unveils New Line of Coaxial Packaged Bi-Directional Amplifiers

In-Stock Bi-Directional RF Amplifiers Operating Up to 3 GHz Available from Pasternack

Irvine, CA - Pasternack, a manufacturer and supplier of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, introduces a new line of bi-directional amplifiers that are used for sending and receiving radio signals in key applications such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), unmanned ground vehicles, L and S band radar, military radio, commercial air traffic control, weather and earth observation, satellites and high gain driver power amplifiers.


The new bi-directional RF amplifiers from Pasternack consist of 2 narrow band models that operate in L-Band (1.35 to 1.39 GHz) and S-Band (2.4 to 2.5 GHz). These designs utilize highly linear Class AB LDMOS semiconductor technology. A general purpose broadband model is also featured which covers 30 MHz to 3 GHz and uses Class A GaAs semiconductors. Typical gain levels for these amplifiers range from 20 to 23 dB with 0.5 dB gain flatness. The key advantage of these designs is fast switching capability (1 millisecond typical) between Transmit (Tx) and Receive (Rx) states where high output power is generated, while at the same time, the sensitive receiver section has a 2.5 dB noise figure and sufficient RF gain levels to maintain a high data rate link.

These models are designed for use in both military and commercial applications and are capable of supporting any signal type and modulation format, including but not limited to 3-4G telecom, WLAN, OFDM, DVB and CW/AM/FM. The companys bi-directional amplifiers utilize the latest technologies and design methods that offer high power density, efficiency and linearity in small lightweight environmentally sealed packages with SMA connectors. These modules also feature a quick-connect circular locking connector for DC and control functions. All designs use a single voltage supply with voltage regulation.

Pasternacks selection of in-stock bi-directional amplifiers exhibit fast transmit and receive switching capabilities, long transmission range and highly efficient operation which are critical for use in applications such as unmanned aerial vehicles and cellular networks, explains Tim Galla, Active RF Components Product Manager at Pasternack.

Pasternacks broadband bi-directional amplifiers are in-stock and ready to ship. You can view these components by visiting http://www.pasternack.com/pages/Featured_Products/coaxial-packaged-bi-directional-amplifiers.htm.

PureLink - HCE III TX/RX: 4K HDR over HDBaseT Extension System w/ Control and Bi-Directional PoE

The HCE III Tx/Rx HDBaseT™ extension system offers full HDMI 2.0 compliance supporting HDR (High Dynamic Range) and 4K@60Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling. Featuring PureLink's proprietary Prcis codec, a light compression technology, the HCE III can transport Ultra HD/4K, multi-channel audio, and High Dynamic Range (10 bits support) content over a single CATx cable. The HCE III provides HDMI extension up to 130 feet (40 meters) at Ultra HD/4K and up to 230 ft. (70 meters) at 1080p over category cable with embedded multi-channel audio, CEC pass-through, bi-directional RS-232 and IR control, and PoE - all with zero loss and zero noise. The HCE III Tx/Rx also supports Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD Master Audio plus LCPM (up to 192 kHz). Additionally, the low profile "slim box" enclosure design make the HCE III ideal for limited space installation environments, such as behind flat panel displays and video walls.
