AR has recently developed a line of hybrid power modules, or HPMs, to cover the 0.7 to 6 GHz frequency range. There are five different models available in this line with variations in output power, minimum gain, mismatch tolerance, harmonic distortion, and more. For more information on each individual amplifier module’s specifications, download the available datasheets below.
The new "A" Series amplifiers, for example, are 25% -- 50% smaller than previous models, yet the new size does not mean a reduction in power. These newer, smaller models fit easily into a control room; and because of the new design, they are more efficient, using less energy than other amplifiers. The smaller, more efficient design also results in an increased performance to price ratio. In other words you get more for your money.
This hybrid amplifier features a solid-state, class AB design, high reliability and ruggedness, optional built-in control monitoring and protection circuits, a soft-fail design, and +12VDC single bias. It covers the 6-18 GHz frequency range, and its excellent gain flatness, noise figure, and low intermodulation distortion make it ideal for military and wireless applications.
This solid-state amplifier covers the 80 MHz to 1000 MHz frequency range and uses push-pull circuitry in its higher power stages in order to lower distortion and improve stability. It’s particularly well suited for applications that require an amplifier with high gain and instantaneous bandwidth.
AR’s solid state amplifier family provides you with the power (1 – 800 watts) and frequency (0.8 to 18 GHz) needed for wireless and EMC testing. These amplifiers boast low spurious signals, noise figures and distortion. They also generate 100% rated power and make it available to the load even when mismatch is severe. In addition, many of the amplifiers is this family allow you to upgrade your existing amplifier to higher power without purchasing new amplifiers as part of the “Subampability” concept.
