The NANOWAVE NW8996-50 is an X-band Solid-State Power Amplifier (SSPA) module for pulsed operation.

It provides a series of SSPA power bricks covering the frequency range from 1 GHz (L-band) to 36 GHz (Ka-band) and output power levels from 10 W to 200 W per module.

These power bricks form a building block system that enables scaling up of combined output power levels into the kW regime utilizing NANOWAVE's low-loss power combiners.

Key features

  • Arbitrary load capability
  • High-efficiency GaN (or GaAs)
  • High pulse-to-pulse stability
  • Low pulse droop
  • Large range of pulse width and duty cycle options
  • Integrated Modulator and charge capacitor bank
  • Integrated Digital Control Functionality (optional)
  • Single Supply Voltage (optional)
  • Low Rise / Fall Times of < 100 ns
  • Digital control interface (I2C, RS232)
