SHF S804 B
Linear Broadband Amplifier
SHF reserves the right to change specifications and design without notice – SHF S804 B - V001 – Jun 1, 2017
Page 1/12
Description
The SHF S804 B ultra-linear broadband amplifier is the RoHS compliant successor of the popular
SHF S804 A. The SHF S804 B is well suited as a receiver amplifier for high speed NRZ and PAM-4
applications. Additionally, the 12 dBm (2.5 V) P1dB of the amplifier also makes it well suited as a linear
driver for high speed EA modulators, as well as VCSELs and DFB lasers where the drive requirement is
lower than that typically required for MZ modulators.
The S804 B is a two-stage amplifier design, using proprietary monolithic microwave integrated circuits
(MMICs) inside special carriers to achieve ultra-wide bandwidth and low noise performance. An internal
voltage regulation protects the amplifier against accidental reverse voltage connection and makes it
robust against line voltage ripple.
Ease of Use
Upon delivery, the amplifier is already pre-set to deliver maximum gain, maximum output amplitude and
nominally 50% crossing.
These settings can be modified in an easy to use graphical user interface, as shown below. For
connecting the amplifier to the computer, the USB to I2C converter cable, as well as the required
software are included with each amplifier with no extra charge.
Once new settings are stored on the device the amplifier will remember the settings until further
changes are made. There is no need to connect a computer to the device unless gain, maximum
amplitude or crossing adjustments are to be made.
The software is available for download at www.shf.de .

Output Amplitude Adjustment
The Output Amplitude can be adjusted by the GUI. The maximum possible reduction depends on the
output amplitude itself, i.e. a minimum input power of -6 dBm is required to achieve a output power
reduction of at least 1 dB. Higher output power levels will result in an extended output power reduction
range.

Pin assignment might change if a bias tee option is chosen.
Thermal resistance of heat sink approx. 6 K/W
For permanent mounting remove the heat sink from the amplifier. In that case please ensure that
adequate cooling of the amplifier is guaranteed. It is recommended to use thermal paste or a thermal
gap pad for the mounting. In order to separate the heat sink from the amplifier, remove the four screws
on the heat sink. Please note, thermal paste is used between the heat sink and the amplifier housing.

User Instructions
ATTENTION!
Electrostatic sensitive GaAs FET amplifier
1.
To prevent damage through static charge build up, cables should be always discharged before
connecting them to the amplifier!
2.
Attach a 50 Ohm output load before supplying DC power to the amplifier!
3.
The supply voltage can be taken from any regular 8…12 V, 0.3 A DC power supply and can be
connected to the supply feed-through filter via an ON / OFF switch.
4.
Using a 3 dB or 6 dB input attenuator will result in a 6 dB or 12 dB increase of the input return loss. For
minimal degradation of amplifier rise time, these attenuators should have a bandwidth specification of
greater 50 GHz (V/ 1.85mm attenuators)!
5.
An input signal of about 0.45 Vpp will produce saturated output swing of about 4.2 Vpp.
6.
Higher input voltages will drive the amplifier’s output stage into saturation, leading to waveform peak
clipping.
8.
Saturated output voltages can only be used without damage while the amplifier is connected to a 50
Ohm precision load with a VSWR of less than 1.2 or better than 20 dB return loss up to 40 GHz.
9.
While using a reflective load the output voltage has to be reduced to a safe operating level according
to the magnitudes of the reflections.
ATTENTION: At radio frequencies a capacitive load can be transformed to an inductive one through
transmission lines! With an output stage driven into saturation this may lead to the immediate
destruction of the amplifier (within a few ps)!
10. The input voltage should never be greater than 1 Vpp equivalent to 4 dBm input power.
The input voltage without DC power supplied to the amplifier should never be greater than 2 Vpp
equivalent to 10 dBm input power.
