Automatic Gain Controlled Amplifiers

API Technologies' line of AGC Amps allows the user to anticipate receiver power levels and automatically adjust the output power to a desired level.

Designed for rugged military environments, these units can be customized with an optional time delay adjustment features as well as a phase modulation compression to accommodate for peak power variations.

These AGC Amps are also designed to minimize group delay with group delay performance as low as +/- 1 ns typical.
