Signal Jamming Power Amplifier

The QB-617 is a Class “A” amplifier operating in a communication band of 1930 to 1990MHz to jam communication band frequencies. This addition to API’s power amplifier product line offers a minimum output power of 100 watts with a gain of 50dB, with multiple carrier inputs. Typical current draw from a nominal +28 VDC supply at rated output power is 8 A. This design offers an isolator protected output to guard against transistor failure due to infinite VSWR mismatch.

APC Technology Group plc

APC is a franchised distributor for API Technologies range of RF and microwave and microelectronics components and is an AS9120 certified distributor of electronic components.
