- Gain: 20 dB
- Bandwidth: ~ 10 MHz
- Saturation P-1dB : ~ -125 dBm
- Noise temperature: ~ 0.5 K*
- Mode tunability: ~ 400 MHz from listed frequency.
* System noise temperature < 1 K requires cryo-HEMT following amplifier.
- Small (~ 50 MHz) shifts in center frequency accomplished by varying pump frequency.
- Larger shifts (up to 400 MHz) via magnetic bias.
- Each amplifier has two modes which can be used interchangeably for enhanced flexibility.
- Standard mode frequencies are 9 GHz and 5 GHz, or 7.5 GHz and 5 GHz.
- Amplifier gain is controlled by amplitude of microwave pump.
- Increase gain for weaker signals or to compensate for noise of following amplifier.
- Decrease gain to maximize dynamic range and bandwidth.
- Stable rf bias is crucial, see application notes for acceptable generators.
