The GainMaker Broadband Amplifier Platform includes a variety of RF amplifiers that address the divergent needs of today’s broadband networks. All GainMaker amplifiers provide superior 2-way performance and reliability combined with a user-friendly layout. All share common plug-in accessories and perform to 870 MHz in the forward path. The System Amplifiers in this family provide multiple forward RF output ports while the Line Extenders provide a single forward RF output port.
GainMaker System Amplifiers now utilize GaAsFET technology in the interstage and output gain stages for improved distortion performance.
The GainMaker System Amplifier modules have increased gain and are mechanically compatible with previous System Amplifier II, II+, and III housing bases, often enabling upgrade to higher bandwidth with no re-spacing or re-splicing. The DC power supply is modular and located in an updated housing lid for easy access. All GainMaker System Amplifier modules are factory configured with reverse amplifier, diplex filters, thermal compensation circuit, forward interstage pads, and equalizer to ensure optimal performance. Optional single-pilot Automatic Gain Control (AGC) configurations are also available.
The GainMaker High Gain Dual System Amplifier is ideally suited for providing high (bridger) level RF to the feeder network. It provides two forward RF outputs (Main and Auxiliary), with the option to create a third RF output via use of an optional plug-in Auxiliary path signal director.
