- 10 MHz to 3 GHz frequency range
- 22 dB to 27 dB gain
- 4 dBm output power
- 6.5 dB (10 MHz to 2 GHz) and 7.5 dB (2 to 3 GHz) noise figure
- Noise figure measurement
- Applications that require additional gain and low noise
The 87405A Preamplifier is a multi-purpose instrument for any application that requires low noise and additional gain. The SNR of the final signal in an RF system is greatly impacted by the initial amplification of the signal and its original SNR. By having low noise figure in a preamplifier, the final signal will have a lower noise than without the preamplifier.
