The Agilent 83018A microwave system amplifier is a compact, off-the-shelf amplifier designed for systems designers and integrators. This amplifier provides power where you need it to recover system losses and to boost available power in RF and microwave ATE systems. The ultrabroad bandwidth from 2 to 26.5 GHz allows the designer to replace several narrow bandwidth amplifiers with a single Agilent amplifier, eliminating the need for crossover networks or multiple bias supplies. The standard Agilent 83018A includes internal directional detectors for external leveling applications. With excellent noise figure relative to its broad bandwidth and high gain, this amplifier significantly improves system noise figure and dynamic range. The Agilent 83018A comes equipped with a low profile heat sink, an integral mounting bracket, and a two-meter dc power supply cable. Thermal characteristics and power supply design allow fast, easy integration into most measurement systems.
