Diamond Microwave adds compact X-band GaN amplifier

Common module amplifier has 100W peak pulsed power output over 1700MHz bandwidth

Diamond Microwave, a specialist in microwave power amplifiers, has re-designed its range of GaN-based solid-state power amplifiers (SSPA) into a new common module format, and has added an X-band model that can be operated in either pulsed or CW mode.

On show at this week's International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Phoenix, the DM-X100-01 is described as an ultra-compact amplifier with 100W output, operating over a 1700MHz bandwidth centred at 8.5GHz.

"We have added a new X-band GaN SSPA to our product range, and at the same time the full range has been re-packaged into a new common module format," said Richard Lang, managing director at Diamond Microwave. "These amplifiers are extremely compact, the core microwave assembly being a chip-and-wire design in a slim, low-profile housing. If size is important, we can supply amplifiers without an enclosure, for significantly tighter integration into a microwave sub-system. They can also be tailored to suit other frequency ranges in the 1-18GHz range."

The Diamond Microwave range now includes SSPA in the ranges 2 - 6GHz (DM-SC80-01), 7.65 - 9.35GHz (DM-X100-01) and 16.3 - 17.3GHz (DM-K100-01). The amplifier designs are flexible in layout and architecture, and are fully customisable to meet individual specifications for electrical, mechanical and environmental parameters.
