PSPL8003 15 GHz Low Noise Amplifier LABware Module

Read Online:

The Model PSPL8003 15 GHz Low Noise Amplifier LABware Module is designed for bench-top lab use. This LABware module can simply be plugged in with a line cord (either 110 V or 220 V) and the amplifier is ready for use. The PSPL8003 is a broadband linear amplifier intended for use amplifying signals with a minimum amount of distortion. The PSPL8003 provides exceptional gain flatness and low deviation from linear phase while providing a bandwidth of 10 kHz to 15 GHz. This amplifier is ideal for use as a linear gain block.

Key performance specifications
  • LABware bench-top instrument
  • 15 GHz bandwidth with excellent gain flatness (±0.3 dB)
  • Lower 3 dB frequency of 10 kHz
  • Low deviation from linear phase (±3 degrees)
  • 1 dB compression point of 13 dBm
  • Integrated power supplies

Typical performance

The following plot shows the response of the PSPL8003 to a 100 mv 20 ps rise time step. The PSPL8003 is an inverting amplifier; the output has negative polarity. From the top to the bottom, the time scales are 50 ps/div, 500 ps/div, and 2 ns/div.
