API Technologies says it has expanded their Power Amplifier line of products to include the latest in GaN technology driven designs. API has developed these products for use in electronic warfare, RCIED countermeasures, and national security jammer applications where the use of rugged and highly reliable power amplifier designs is mission critical. API to display these amplifiers at the annual IMS Exhibition (Booth #744), June 4-6 in Seattle.
API said it worked closely with leading edge semiconductor suppliers to design power amplifiers with increased power density and complexity while reducing the overall size of the amplifier. This translates to power amplifier solutions that are reliable, smaller, lighter, and more efficient.
“Our strategy, to create strategic partnerships with leading defense companies to provide both standard and custom solutions, has earned us a reputation as a leader in the broadband power amplification market,” said Richard Graham, Director, Sales and Marketing, RF/Microwave & Microelectronics, API Technologies. “API’s successful heritage in amplifier design includes both broadband, high linearity amplifiers, as well as high frequency, narrowband, higher power amplifiers to 100 watts with strict attention to size and value.”
API currently offers Class A, AB, and C power amplifier designs up to 500 watts from 100 kHz to 6000 MHz. Recent developments also include higher power 1 kilowatt pulsed applications through X-band.
