Gain Control Amplifiers
Gain control can be added to many of our amplifier designs. When the gain is modest and the Noise Figure and 1 dB compression levels are important, the gain control must be carefully designed into the amplifier structure.
We have octave wide attenuator designs up to 40 GHz suitable for this type of application. Depending upon the gain control range, we can also distribute the gain control in multiple parts of the design. This may be done for low to medium gain units in order to meet the Noise Figure and 1 dB compression point requirements.
Gain controlled amplifiers are sometimes single chassis or a cascaded set of modules where the middle module is a quasi-linear PIN diode attenuator, typically an octave wide. This modular approach avoids the necessity of a special design as the input and output modules are normally standard products and have standard cascaded packaging.Multi-octave amplifier gain control can be done but is more challenging depending upon the gain control range. We normally try to incorporate the gain control in a compact form.
Since 1969, L3 Narda-MITEQ, the pioneers in Amplifier development, have been customizing to our customers specific requirements. This can include new design efforts, modifications to existing designs for performance and mechanical needs, as well as additional testing and environmental screening.
