BC Systems introduces GaN-based military RF power amplifier
BC Systems, of Setauket, New York USA, has introduced an RF power amplifier designed for defense applications requiring a compact device covering a broadband frequency of 20 to 305 MHz and having RF output power of at least 100 W in Class AB operation.
The Model RF40015 reportedly combines gallium nitride (GaN) RF power transistors with the company’s design and fabrication techniques. According to the company, the device delivers high RF power density in a module measuring only 5.5 x 4.5 x 1.6 in and weighing less than 2 lb. BC Systems boasts that it has extremely fast blanking speed of less than 5 µs for excellent noise performance and low standby power consumption, as well as efficiency of at least 30%, and the ability to deliver its full RF power output into VSWR of 2.5:1.
