Teledyne Microwave Solutions (TMS) offers products specific to the Tactical & Airborne SATCOM systems that include a wide range of small, light Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPAs), Block Up Converters (BUCs), Low Noise Blocks (LNB's) and Low Noise Amplifiers (LNAs). Each unit is designed to offer over 200 different configurations, including ones that are auto-sensing.
The 80RF1000 Series of solid state amplifiers operate in the 80-1000 MHz frequency range. Four different models are available with output powers of 175W, 250W, 500W, and 1000W. These amplifiers are ideal for applications involving high energy physics, EMC testing, general research, and in military/defense. Specifications for the individual models can be found below.
These new amplifier models employ a new design that delivers more than twice the power of older models. The new, more efficient design consumes less power, and incorporates both USB and Ethernet interfaces in addition to the standard IEEE and RS-232 interfaces.
This self-contained solid-state amplifier covers the 80 MHz to 1000 MHz frequency range and features lowered distortion and improved stability through the use of push-pull circuitry. When used in conjunction with an RF sweep generator, this amplifier can provide 1000 watts (min) of swept power.
Teledyne Paradise Datacom, a Teledyne Microwave Solutions Business, recently announced the new 100W Ka-Band Outdoor SSPA built for extreme environmental conditions and high reliability operation. The SSPA includes two and four-module models designed to generate power levels that exceed those of traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs) commonly used at gateway earth stations.
This series of solid state amplifiers operates in the 2.0 to 4.0 GHz frequency range and is available in 30W, 60W, 100W, 125W, 200W, and 400 W versions. These amplifiers are ideal for R&D, high energy physics, EMC testing, communications, and military and defense applications. Specifications on the individual amplifiers that make up this line can be found on the datasheets below.
AR’s 3000S1G2z5 is a solid state amplifier covering the 1 to 2.5 GHz frequency range while providing 3000 watts of output power. It’s ideal for radiated immunity testing and other applications that require instantaneous bandwidth, high gain, and linearity. It’s also an ideal TWT replacement.
