The NuPower™ 12A03A-D30 Micro L- & S-band radio frequency (RF) power amplifier boasts the industry’s smallest form factor in its class of PAs at 1.62 cubic inches and provides 5 watts of RF power for CW and near-constant-envelope waveforms from 1.0 to 2.5 GHz.

The NuPower 12A03A-D30 module accepts a nominal +30 dBm input drive level from the transmitter/transceiver and provides 7 dB of gain to generate at least 5 watts, and typically 7 watts, across the entire operating band.

Based on the latest gallium nitride (GaN) technology, this solid state power amplifier (SSPA) module boasts high DC-to-RF power efficiency of up to 30% and micro-miniature packaging, making it ideal for size, weight, and power (SWaP)-constrained broadband RF telemetry and tactical communication systems applications.

The NuPower 12A03A-D30 Micro PA extends the communication range of a wide variety of L-band and S-band transmitters and transceivers. In fact, the NuPower 12A03A-D30 Micro PA has been tested and approved by L-3 Communications for use with its Bandit digital data link transceiver, of which the NuPower 12A03A-D30 Micro PA can effectively provide twice the range.

All NuPower PAs come standard with a Micro-D interface cable with 18″ flying leads. An available option for this PA is an accessory kit (NW-PA-ACC-KT01), which includes a fan-cooled heat sink and an interface cable assembly with banana plug terminations for lab testing.

*Please see the NuPower 12A03A Micro L- & S-Band Power Amplifier if your system needs a PA with the standard 0 dBm input drive level*
