The NuPower™ 15D05A L- & S-Band Power Amplifier is a small, highly efficient, connectorized solid state power amplifier that delivers over 20 watts of RF power from 800 to 2500 MHz to extend the operational range of data links and transmitters.

The NuPower 15D05A accepts a nominal 0 dBm (1 mW) RF input and provides 44 dB of gain from 800 MHz to 2500 MHz for continuous wave (CW) and near-constant-envelope waveforms.

Based on the latest gallium nitride (GaN) technology, NuPower 15D05A’s 25% power efficiency at
rated power and <10 in3 form factor make it ideal for size, weight, and power-constrained broadband RF telemetry, tactical communication systems, and electronic warfare systems.

NuPower PAs feature over-voltage protection and can operate over a wide temperature range of -40 °C to +85 °C (baseplate).

All NuPower PAs come standard with a Micro-D cable assembly with 18″ flying leads for interfacing to the unit. Also available is an accessory kit which includes a 28 VDC fan-cooled heat sink and an upgraded interface cable with banana plug terminations for lab testing.
