Spectrum Microwave Introduces QB-900 Series Power Amplifiers

Spectrum Microwave introduces a new line of high power amplifiers which provide up to 4 watts of output power and are internally matched for 2000 to 6000 MHz. These amplifiers feature a new surface mount package with an optional high performance heatsink. QB-900 series amplifiers offer exceptional wide band performance in a small surface mount package.

Spectrum Microwave’s high power amplifiers do not require external circuitry, only a DC power supply and a good ground. The amplifiers feature internal blocking caps, biasing circuitry and RF matching. In addition to being cost effective, the new packaging for these high performance amplifiers is lightweight.

Spectrum Microwave QB-900 Series Power AmplifiersQB-900 series amplifiers are ideal for a wide range of applications including jammers, pre-amp drivers, and other high-end applications. The QB-900 series starts at $239 (in low quantities) with standard product lead-times of 2 to 4 weeks.
