The PGA-103 amplifier is ideal as a Very Low Noise high dynamic range amplifier for use between 100MHz and 1.3GHz.  The amplifier is also suitable as a driver amplifier for complex RF waveforms, and produces up to +21dBm output on 400MHz.   The PGA-103 is specified to 4GHz, but the gain is very non linear and is 10dB lower at 1.3GHz compared to 100MHz.  Please refer to the PGA-103+ Data Sheet for further information.  A 78M05 regulator is mounted under the board for +7 to 15vdc operation.

The Product image shows a fully constructed EME103 KITB product.  Please refer to the Options Tab for the descriptions of the various products available.

Please Note: There is a minimum 2 working day delay to construct built products before they are shipped.

PGA-103 KIT is a Basic Kit that includes the PC board, Instructions, and all on board components. Requires complete construction, and soldering of SMD components.

PGA-103 KITB Is a fully constructed and tested PC board Kit including SMA female connectors For 100MHz to 1.3GHz. No enclosure is included.

PGA-103 B-ENC Is a fully constructed amplifier in a Hammond 1550Q enclosure with female SMA, and 2.1mm DC socket. The 2.1mm DC cable is Optional

PGA-103 PCB Only includes the PC board and Kit construction notes.

PGA Option2 Select where you want the PGA-103 mounted on the board.  For Receive applications the PGA-103 is mounted close to the input connector for a lower noise performance, allowing for an optional output attenuator to be fitted to the board.  For Transmit driver applications the PGA-103 is mounted close to the output connector allowing for an optional input attenuator to be fitted to the board.

Kits Do Not include connectors, miscellaneous hardware, or enclosure.  For experienced constructors with some SMD construction experience.
