ASX1436 Datasheet – MMIC Power Amplifier

The ASX1436 is a specialized type of integrated circuit called a monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) power amplifier. It’s specifically designed to amplify radio frequency (RF) signals within a narrow frequency range, from 13.75 gigahertz (GHz) to 14.50 GHz.

Function: Ku Band Power Amplifier MMIC

Package: 10-lead Flange Type

Manufacturer: ASB Inc. ( )


ASX1436 is a three-stage internally matched MMIC Power Amplifier which operates between 13.75 GHz
and 14.50 GHz frequency range. This product is well suited for VSAT applications.

This amplifier is particularly well-suited for very small aperture terminal (VSAT) applications. VSATs are satellite communication terminals used for two-way satellite communications, such as internet access, voice communication, and data transfer.
