In Pursuit of Excellence
Through Engineering since 1978


AMC Model DVA-50 Provides a Linear
Amplified Video Output Voltage Proportional
to the Input RF Voltage, Where the Video Output = K x VIN. 
(A Typical Value for
K is 6, For a Video Output Between 0 and 5 Volts.)  This
Unit Operates From 6
to 18 GHz with Typical Transfer Law Linearity of ±0.5 dB
Between Input Power
Levels of -5 and +15 dBm.  Frequency Flatness Over the 6
to 18 GHz Range is
±1.5 dB With a Signal to Noise Ratio Greater Than 60 dB at -5
dBm Input Power.
Input VSWR is Better Than 2.0:1.  Current Draw is Under
30 mA Per Supply Between
±9 and ±18 Volts.  Size is 2.2″ x 1.5″ x 0.4″.
