RF Broadband Amplifiers

More than 30 years experience in microwave technology

For more than 30 years SHF is doing RF broadband amplifier design. The outstanding performance makes our amplifiers suitable for a wide variety of applications in R&D. This comprises not only optical communications but also satellite communications, high-speed pulse experiments, data transmission, radar and antenna measurements.

Laboratory amplifiers for telecom applications (e.g. OC-192, OC-768, 100GbE, 400G and further)

Below you will find a selection of SHF broadband amplifiers with different bandwidth, gain and output drive to suit different requirements for complex signal generation e.g. with LiNbO3 or electro-absorption modulators.

Ideally suited for analog or multi-level signals

3.5V from a SHF S807 at 32G

A variety of SHF amplifiers are verified for their excellent performance with multi-level (e.g. for PAM or QAM) and analog signals (e.g. OFDM). The SHF S807, in particular, is an amplifier specifically designed for 4-level signals. These amplifiers with particular emphasis on linearity are shown in the “Ultra Linear RF Amplifiers” section.
