MELVILLE, N.Y. – Comtech PST in Melville, N.Y., is introducing the BME69189-100 gallium nitride (GaN) small-form-factor (SFF) solid-state power amplifier module for radar, communications, and electronic warfare (EW) transmitters where space, cooling, and power are limited.

The GaN-based 6-to-18 GHz RF amplifier is for replacing traveling wave tube (TWT) and microwave power module (MPM) applications.

The power module is for ultra wideband operation; offers full power across the entire bandwidth; is rugged, reliable, compact, and lightweight; has low harmonic distortion; operates at low voltages; offers soft failure and graceful degradation; and operates from a 28- or 270-volt DC input.

It operates from 6 to 18 GHz; has typical RF power output (Psat) of 100 Watts; typical gain at 100 Watts of more than 46 dB; maximum RF input overdrive of +10 dBm; typical gain flatness at 5 dBm Input of ±2.0dB; AB linear class of operation; and maximum input and output voltage standing wave ratio of 2.0:1.
