The NuPower Xtender™ C10RX03-C037 Bidirectional C-Band Amplifier module is a small, broadband, high-performance RF amplifier that generates 10 Watts of RF power across C-band frequencies of 5125 to 5875 MHz.

The NuPower Xtender C10RX03-C037 C-Band RF bidirectional amplifier is ideal for extending the communication range of half-duplex transceivers with constant-envelope waveforms (i.e. PSK- and FSK-based modulations, such as SOQPSK and GFSK), and generates 10 Watts of RF transmit power. In receive mode, the NuPower Xtender offers a low noise figure of 3 dB and a low noise amplifier that provides 10 dB of gain. The module accepts a nominal +30 dBm input level and provides 10 dB of transmit gain.

The NuPower Xtender C10RX03-C037, features autosense transmit / receive (T/R) mode selection for automatic transmit/receive switching.  For lower C-band coverage check out our NuPower Xtender C10RX03 covers 4.4 to 5.1 GHz.

With a miniature form factor (3.57″ x 2.57″ x 0.50″ and 2.6 cubic inches) and state-of-the-art Gallium Nitride (GaN) power amplifier device technology, the NuPower Xtender C10RX03-C037 Bidirectional C-Band PA module is ideal for broadband RF telemetry and communication systems that require reliability and minimal size, weight, and power consumption (SWaP).
