The NuPower™ 05E05A S-Band Power Amplifier is a small, ultra-high-efficiency solid-state power amplifier module for CW operation that delivers, on average, 30 watts of RF power from 2.0 to 2.6 GHz, to boost signal power levels of data links and transmitters for communications range extension, electronic warfare (e.g. electronic attack), etc.

With 44 dB of RF gain, the NuPower 05E05A module is configured for an input drive level of 0 dBm from the transmitter/transceiver.

Based on state-of-the-art Gallium Nitride (GaN) device technology, the NuPower 05E05A provides a compelling option for size, weight and power (SWaP) constrained RF telemetry and military communication systems given its 9.6 cubic inch, 9 ounce enclosure and 40% DC power efficiency.

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 with requisite power cable, and an upgraded module interface cable with banana plug terminations for lab testing.
