PMI Model No. PE2-1020-R518-12-SFF is a low noise amplifier that offers a positive gain slope versus frequency. This type of amplifier is useful when trying to equalize frequency flatness over a broad bandwidth. This model provides 10dB of gain at 500MHz and 20dB of gain at 18GHz. The noise figure is 10dB at 500MHz and 9dB at 18GHz. The OP1dB is +14dBm minimum and the maximum VSWR is 2.5:1. The operating voltage is +15VDC and the current draw is 140mA typical. This model is supplied in PMI's standard PE2 housing. Other gain levels and frequency ranges are available.
