The NuPower™ L60T01 L-Band Power Amplifier is a small, highly efficient, connectorized solid state power amplifier that delivers over 60 watts of RF power from 960 to 1390 MHz to extend the operational range of airborne telemetry links and transmitters.

The NuPower L60T01 accepts a nominal 0 dBm (1 mW) RF input and provides 48 dB of gain from 960 MHz to 1390 MHz for continuous wave (CW) and near-constant-envelope waveforms.

Based on the latest gallium nitride (GaN) technology, NuPower L60T01’s 25% power efficiency at rated power and <10 in3 form factor make it ideal for size, weight, and power-constrained airborne 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.
