RF Bidirectional Amplifiers (BDAs)
The NuPower Xtender™ series of solid state bidirectional amplifier (BDA) modules is ideal for extending the communication range of half-duplex transceivers. Leveraging the latest Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology and market-leading design miniaturization techniques, Xtender amplifiers are designed to meet the demanding needs of aerospace, defense and industrial markets. NuPower Xtender’s combination of power efficiency and miniature, ruggedized packaging makes them ideal for size, weight, and power-constrained (SWaP) broadband telemetry, ISR, and tactical communications systems.
Most models are available for same-day shipment if ordered by 2 p.m. Eastern Time.

All NuPower BDAs are designed, built and tested in-house under NuWaves’ Quality Management System (QMS) certified to AS9100:2009 and ISO 9001-2008 standards, which ensures that each product arrives on-time and defect-free. Each BDA typically accepts a nominal +5 dBm RF input and is packed with robust features providing reverse- & over-voltage protection, over-current protection, and thermal shutdown for out-of-spec conditions. Each unit includes a standard 9-pin micro D connector with flying leads which provides out-of-the-box operation. An accessory kit is available as an option for every NuPower amplifier that includes a fan-cooled heatsink with associated power supply and an upgragded interface cable terminated with banana plugs.
