30–2700 MHz, 8W Bi-Directional Amplifier
December 27, 2019: Triad RF Systems, a top-tier designer
and manufacturer of RF and microwave amplifiers, announces the introduction of their
TTRM1210 bi-directional amplifier, a wideband GaN Bi-Directional
Amplifier (BDA) that operates from 30 MHz to 2700 MHz and produces over 8 W
of transmit power. The receive side has over 20 dB of gain to overcome losses between
the antenna and the radio. The noise figure is 2 dB which makes the BDA practically
invisible to the system. Switching between transmit and receive can be done either automatically
when RF is sensed at the radio port, or manually switched by the radio or user.
One of the smallest BDAs in the industry measuring
only 3.25 x 2.12 x 0.53 inches, this feature rich BDA is also one of the most efficient.
While producing 8 W of RF power, it only consumes 24 W of DC power. It also
produces over 2 W of linear OFDM power with <9% EVM.
In order to operate on various existing platforms, the unit features a wide DC input
range of +11 to +28 VDC. Switching between TX and RX at less than 1 μsec can be performed
manually while base plate temperature can be monitored via an analog temperature sensor.
This class AB GaN module is designed for both military and commercial applications.
It is 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 latest device technologies
and design methods are employed to offer high power density, efficiency, and linearity
in a small, lightweight package.
Features: High speed on/off control, Temperature monitor output, Over-temperature
protection, Auto Tx/Rx switching (RF detect)
