Pasternack Introduces a New Rackmount Variable Gain RF Amplifier with Performance from 100 MHz to 18 GHz

Pasternack's new rack mount RF amplifier offers broadband frequency coverage from 100 MHz to 18 GHz with high gain levels of 50 dB minimum over a temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. Integrated digitally controlled attenuators boast dynamic range up to 60 dB with a 1 dB step size. Typical performance includes 6.5 dB noise figure and +14 dBm output P1dB.  The package design supports a front panel LED display with manual control dial and SMA connectors, and a 9 pin D-Sub Miniature connector on the rear panel. It is also environmentally sealed and designed to meet a series of MIL-STD-202F test conditions.

The PE15A7000 variable gain amplifier can be used on a test bench, but is also designed to fit into rack mount cabinet enclosures (size: 1U high and 10 inches deep). Offering control flexibility, the gain level with precise attenuation step size over a wide frequency band can be manually controlled, or utilize the included RS-232 serial cable and Ethernet connection to link with a PC computer to command control for automated testing (ATE) applications which could involve production testing over temperature or research and development projects. 

"This rack mount variable gain amplifier offers Designers high levels of gain and attenuation across 100 MHz to 18 GHz that can be command controlled via a PC for highly accurate test and measurement applications," explains Tim Galla, Active RF Components Product Manager at Pasternack.

Pasternack's new rackmount variable gain RF amplifier is in-stock and ready to ship today. You can view the new amplifier by visiting
