Model BOX-010200 is a self-contained, battery powered, versatile, small signal, low noise amplifier having a multi-octave bandwidth from 1 to 20GHz. The MIC design utilises GaAs PHEMT distributed amplifier MMIC technology, together with proprietary matching circuits within a robust die-cast aluminium alloy housing which also contains a rechargeable NiMH battery. A battery charger is supplied with each unit. The amplifier is fitted with type N connectors, female input and female output as standard. The main applications include EMC testing, remote antenna site testing, portable communications, satcoms, countermeasures and radar equipment.
