The ultrabroad bandwidth from 10 MHz to 50 GHz allows the designer to replace several narrow bandwidth amplifiers with a single Agilent amplifier, eliminating the need for crossover networks or multiple bias supplies.
The 83050A power amplifier and 83051A preamplifier expand frequency performance to 50 GHz, while the 1 Watt 83020A offers broadband power to 26 GHz. The small amplifier footprint allows for simple in-line insertion to existing system blocks that require amplification. The standard 83017A, 83018A, and 83020A include internal directional detectors for external leveling applications.
The 83020A is optionally available without the coupler-detector providing up to +30 dBm and +25 dBm, respectively. With excellent noise figure relative to their broad bandwidth and high gain, these amps significantly improve system noise figure and dynamic range. These products come equipped with a low profile heat sink, an integral mounting bracket, and a two-meter DC power supply cable. Thermal and power supply design allows fast, easy integration into most measurement systems.
