An RF amplifier is a type of electronic amplifier that converts a low-power radio-frequency signal into a higher power signal. It does not change the signal or the data therein, but amplifies it for transmission in ultra-critical long-range applications. RF amplifiers are often customized when more gain, higher power, better linearity or specific performance configuration is desired.
Custom RF amplifiers can be constructed to fit any number of criteria, but before the design process begins, it’s important to know the application or operational environment of the RF amplifier in question, the frequency band(s) for which it will be required to operate within, the specific power requirements (input DC Power and output RF Power), any size, weight or power (SWaP) constraints, and any other special feature or performance functionality that needs to be accounted for.
