10W HF Ultra Linear Power Amplifier

The LA01-545-GMS Amplifier has been specifically developed for high Interceptperformance in the RF power range of 1-10W. Careful choice of components, has provided the user with high MTBF and offersin excess of 80,000Hrs MTBF when calculated using MIL-HNDBK-217F. The amplifier is housed in a rugged machined aluminium box. The box is flanged to allow mounting to a heat-sink.
