Model: SDLVA-2G6G-70-CD-1


PMI Model No. SDLVA-2G6G-70-CD-1 is a Successive Detection Log Video Amplifier (SDLVA) that operates between the 2.0 to 6.0GHz frequency range. It has a dynamic range of 70dB, a log slope of 40mV/dB and offers very fast rise and fall times of 15nsec and 25nsec respectively.  This model is temperature compensated such that the Log Slope Variation with Temperature is typically ±0.6mV/dB and the Frequency Flatness is better than ±1.2dB.  Furthermore, it has been designed using cutting edge GaAs technology which provides stunning performance and reliability in a compact package measuring 3.75” x 1.5” x 0.5” making it an optimum solution for high speed, channelized receiver applications.
