Nigmegen, The Netherlands – May 23, 2016 – Ampleon today announced two 400 Watt S band power amplifier pallets designed for a variety of civil and military radar applications. These small form factor modules, measuring just 55 x 35 mm, reduce the overall size of the PA sub assembly in addition to reducing the design’s BOM cost.

Optimised for SWaP-CR (size, weight and power – cost and reliability) constraints, these 9th generation 32 V LDMOS technology pallets meet the industry requirements of cost and reliable performance. The pallets are 100 % RF tested ensuring a high product consistency in the end design. The latest LDMOS Gen 9 technology used in these pallets is very competitive against most of the existing solutions currently available in the market. The major benefits of using LDMOS technology against other technologies in this application area are the long-term availability together with the renowned product consistency and quality.

The BLS9G3135P-400 and BLS9G2934P-400 are 50 Ohm matched modules that help engineers create high power solutions. The BLS9G2934P-400 has an output power > 400 W, a gain of > 10 dB, an efficiency > 40%, and can operate in the range 2.9 to 3.4 GHz. It is sampling now, with full production due in Q4, 2016.

Being a European supplier, Ampleon is a so-called ‘ITAR-free’ supplier, a factor that is appreciated by its customers in the worldwide A & D marketplace.
