Broadband RF & Microwave Amplifiers

For more than 30 years SHF is doing RF broadband and microwave amplifier design. The outstanding performance makes our amplifiers suitable for a wide variety of applications in R&D. This comprises not only optical communications but also satellite communications, high-speed pulse experiments, data transmission, radar and antenna measurements.

Below you will find a selection of SHF broadband amplifiers e.g. for your OC-192, OC-768, 100GbE or 400G application fitting to the different drive requirements in complex signal generation e.g. with LiNbO3 or electro-absorption modulators.

Note 1:
A variety of SHF amplifiers are verified for their excellent performance with multi-level (e.g. for PAM or QAM) and analog signals (e.g. OFDM). The SHF S807 B, in particular, is an amplifier specifically designed for 4-level signals. These amplifiers with particular emphasis on linearity are marked as “ultra linear”.

Note 2:
Different to all other values shown above, gain refers to typical values. For the guaranteed gain, please be referred to the data sheet.

Note 3:
The output power of the SHF F840 A is measured differentially.
This amplifier cannot be driven towards saturation. Therefore, in above overview table P1dB equals P3dB and could rather been seen as the “maximum recommended output power”. For details please be referred to the data sheet.
