ARF1020 is a robust 10 W power amplifier for X-band applications. With 20 dB of power gain and 40% power-added efficiency, the device is ideal for demanding phased array applications, as well as telecommunications and test & measurement systems. The part is pre-matched to 50 Ω and is ESD protected to simplify handling and assembly. This amplifier has been designed for high performance with both CW and pulsed operation. Pulsed operation will result in slightly higher gain, saturated power and PAE.

The part is RoHS* compliant and built with the latest manufacturing techniques to optimize for reliability and quality control.

Export from The Netherlands/EU, dual-use, end-use statement required.
