6th September, Yate, Bristol, UK -  Amplifier Technology announces its latest man-portable amplifier, the 8780 lightweight broadband power amplifier with GaN technology, which spans all frequencies from 2.5 GHz to 6.0 GHz. This will typically be used for personal protection and to counter the threat of IEDs.
 
The huge operational range of this device, from 2.5 GHz to 6.0 GHz, means that it can be used to counter any threat from RF equipment including mobile phones, 3.5G, 4G, WIMAX and RADAR, while the high power output enables it to operate across a wide geographic radius.
 
Amplifier Technology's 8780 lightweight broadband power amplifier with GaN technologyThe 8780 measures just 65 x 120 x 25 mm. This makes it approximately the size of a cigarette packet, and certainly one of the smallest, if not the smallest device on the market.
 
The 8780 has a minimum power output of 25 watts, at which level its efficiency is at least 15% or higher and its gain is 47dBm, yet the harmonic level is relatively low at <-10dBc. The unit is specified with a maximum supply current of 4.5 Amp, 28 Volts at 25 watts.
 
Amplifier Technology will supply the 8780 for Own Equipment Manufacture, where it is most likely to be utilised in EW and counter-IED applications. OEMs and distributors should call +44 (0) 8700 869 941 for more information.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
