Microwave Amplifier
22 to 23 GHz
Model BX9823
• High Gain: 21 dB: Typical
• Reverse Bias Protection
• Input Voltage Regulator
• Laser Sealed Housing
The Model BX9823 is standard high frequency amplifier covering 22 GHz to 23 GHz. This two stage design, utilizes an
input voltage regulator to protect against fluctuations in supply voltage, reverse bias protection circuitry, and a laser sealed
housing for the ultimate in environmental protection. This standard design may also be ordered in a screened MIL-STD-883
version as a model SX9823. All specification ratings are based on measurements in a 50 ohm system with a DC supply voltage tolerance of +/- 2%.
