The Agilent/HP 11975A general purpose, leveled
microwave amplifier has a frequency range of 2 to 8 GHz and
adjustable output of +6 to +16 dBm. In addition, the amplifier has
an adjustable bias current output port that supplies a maximum of ±
11 mA at +3 volts. This bias current is needed by some external
harmonic mixers. The amplifier has automatic level control (ALC)
that can be switched on and off. An "unleveled" light indicates
that ALC is off. Use the 11975A as a LO driver for the Agilent/HP
11970/71 series harmonic mixers to achieve maximum performance.
Signal gain varies between 9 and 15 dB depending upon frequency.
Used in stimulus-response systems, this amplifier allows a wide
variety of sources to be leveled to ±1 dB and amplitude calibrated
from +6 dBm to +16 dBm. As a preamplifier, its small signal gain
varies between 9 and 15 dB depending upon frequency.
