In addition to our standard low-noise amplifiers, MITEQ can support your needs for amplifiers that operate in cryogenic environments.
In addition to our standard low-noise amplifiers, MITEQ can support your needs for amplifiers that operate in cryogenic environments. MITEQ has supplied units cooled to liquid nitrogen temperatures (77 K), as well as units operating at helium (4 K) temperatures. These units utilize our extremely low-noise amplifier designs, which are packaged in hermetically sealed kovar housings.

Due to the fact that silicon-based products do not work well under cryogenic conditions, we have removed the internal voltage regulator and reverse protect diode. As such, the amplifiers can operate at much lower voltages, thus significantly reducing the total power dissipated by the devices within the amplifier.
