Teledyne e2v HiRel announces new family of X-band gain blocks

Teledyne e2v HiRel, part of the Teledyne Defense Electronics Group, has announced the availability of the new 14 GHz family of RF gain blocks spearheaded by an 18.4 dB amplifier (TDGB014-003) e2v HiRel.

The Gain Blocks are based on an indium gallium phosphide (InGaP) technology that is suitable for use in aerospace and defense applications because of its ceramic packaging and space qualification.

These gain blocks also come in gain configurations of 13.6 and 16.5dB which allow the design engineer to exactly configure the signal gain without incurring unwanted parasitic effects.

With this new family of X-band Gain Blocks, Teledyne e2v HiRel customers now have a standard amplifier solution that covers L-band through X-band. This standard amplifier enables a reduction in the number of new qualified components required for flight programs, and thereby simplifies the component procurement process.

Teledyne e2v innovations lead developments in space, transportation, defense, and industrial markets. Teledyne e2v´s unique approach involves listening to the market and to the application challenges of customers and partnering with our customers to provide innovative standard, semi-custom or fully custom solutions, bringing increased value to their systems.
