High Power Solid State & Traveling Wave Tube Amplifiers

High Power Solid State & Traveling Wave Tube Amplifiers

Teledyne MEC, a sister company of Teledyne Microwave Solutions, introduces the new line of SSHPA (Solid State High Power Amplifier) products. Demanding power and reliability standards required with most modern radars and communication transmitters benefit from these amplifiers advanced thermal management schemes and unique highly efficient coaxial power combiners. The most popular bands of radio frequency are covered with this line, and output power ranges from 100W at the module level to over 1kW at the amplifier level, in hermetically sealed packages operating over - 40°C to + 80°C. Additional features include CW and peak pulse power capability, 0.5dB gain flatness peak-peak, excellent VSWR match of 1:5 over different bands, and more.

6 to 18 GHz Solid State Power Amplifiers

6 to 18 GHz Solid State Power Amplifiers

MtronPTI recently released a line of broadband, solid-state, power amplifiers covering the 6 to 18 GHz range with up to 40 Watts power serving the needs of tactical communications, satellite terminals, electronic warfare, radar, point-to-point backhaul, medical, industrial, and scientific applications.


20 MHz to 6 GHz Gain Block Amplifier: AM1018

20 MHz to 6 GHz Gain Block Amplifier: AM1018

Atlanta Micro’s AM1018 is a cascadable gain block amplifier with 13 dB gain, a 2.5 dB noise figure, +35 dBm OIP3, +18/+21 dBm P1db, a 3.3V, 84 mA/+5.0V, 106 mA supply, a -40C to +85C operating temperature, and unconditional stability. It’s operational to +1.7V and comes in a 3mm QFN package.



A.H. Systems' Preamplifier line is an excellent choice with a rugged design, no hassles with soldering your own power leads and they improve overall system sensitivity by at least 20 dB.

Pulsed Power-Combined Wideband TWT Amplifiers

Pulsed Power-Combined Wideband TWT Amplifiers

This series of travelling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs) use two wideband, periodic permanent magnet PPM-focused TATs for CW, AM, and FM amplification. These amplifiers are ideal for test and measurement, antenna pattern measurement, RFI/EMI/EMC testing, radar cross-section measurements, electronic warfare simulation, and electronic countermeasure applications.
