Power amplifiers, providing market leading mmWave power

Cerus, the 71-76GHz and 81-86GHz boost power amplifiers from Filtronic, deliver market-leading transmit power, enabling extended link distances for high-capacity E-band point-to-point, HAPS and Satellite applications.

A solid state power amplifier (SSPA) converts a low-power radio frequency signal to a higher power one. When working with RF signals, especially at the higher frequency mmWave bands for 5G, voltage levels can be extremely low. An RF power amplifier is a circuit block that serves to increase the amplitude, power output, or drive capacity of an RF signal. Filtronic’s Cerus is a series of E-Band (71 to 76 GHz) power amplifiers for point-to-point applications. They are ideal for military or commercial applications with excellent SWAP (low size, weight and high power) perfect for airborne & non-terrestrial applications. Cerus amplifiers are available in 1, 4 and 8-way configurations and deliver unparalleled performance for long range E-Band communications. These amplifiers provide an output power of up to 35 dBm with a small signal gain of over 20 dB.
