Targeting communication, test and radar applications, SAGE Millimeter has released a full W-band, high-gain power amplifier.

Designated Model SBP-7531142515-1010-E1, this power amplifier has a typical small signal gain of 25 dB and a nominal output power of +15 dBm across the frequency range of 75 to 110 GHz. 

The DC power requirement for the amplifier is +15 VDC / 190 mA. The mechanical configuration offers an in-line structure with WR-10 waveguides and UG-387/U-M flanges. Other port configurations, such as with 1-mm connectors or a right angle structure with WR-10 waveguides, are also available under different model numbers.
