Description

The Giga-tronics GT-1050A Microwave Power Amplifier incorporates broadband MMIC-based architecture. These state-of-the-art amplifiers are based on solid-state parallel MMIC design with exceptionally wide bandwidth and high power. The unique circuit topology is highly reliable, with performance that excels where extremes of bandwidth and power are demanded.

The Giga-tronics GT-1050A Microwave Power Amplifiers provide excellent pulse fidelity, low intermodulationdistortion, high linearity and superior gain flatness without the warm-up time, drift or aging issues of travelingwave tube amplifiers (TWTA). They feature low noise figure, low harmonics and spurious content, and arehighly tolerant to load mismatch.
