Astronics / EADS / Racal 5601 PXI Wideband Amplifier

  • Wideband Range: DC to 20 MHz
  • High Output Amplitude: 40 V pk-pk into High Impedance, 20 V pk-pk into 50 Ohms
  • Low Distortion: 0.1%, 10 Hz to 100 kHz


The EADS / Racal 5601 PXI Wideband Amplifier is a cost-effective, versatile, power amplifier. This 3U, single-slot unit opens the door to numerous PXI-based applications.

With low signal distortion, the 5601 amplifies signals from DC to 20 MHz with a fixed gain (standard gains of 1 through 10 available).

Unlike other PXI amplifiers with limited output range, Model 5601’s proprietary design provides up to 40 V pk-pk into a high impedance load, or 20 V pk-pk into 50 ohms. This is ideal for applications ranging from the automotive industry, with signals from 12 V to 28 V, to aerospace, requiring even higher levels in order to route signals throughout the aircraft body.

The 5601 draws current from the +5 V rail only, freeing up the other PXI supplies to provide their full rated current to other devices.

A user-accessible jumper cable configures the signal ground as either floating or connected to chassis ground. With a floating ground, the input and output may move from ground level up to 250 VDC (input and output returns must connect to the same point). This feature is valuable in situations that require a reference other than chassis ground.

Product Family: 5601, 56O1
