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.
CPI’s X-band SSPA covers the 8.8 to 9.6 GHz frequency range and has been designed for use in radar applications. It utilizes high efficiency GaN transistors combined into 900 W air cooled bricks. The result is a solid state power amplifier with high gain, high efficiency, pulse fidelity, excellent AM/PM phase-noise, and spectral regrowth performance.
AR’s 30S1G6 is a solid-sate amplifier covering the 1.0 to 6.0 GHz frequency range. When used with a sweep generator, it provides a minimum of 30 watts RF power. Like most of AR’s amplifiers, this model is ideal for applications that call for instantaneous bandwidth and high gain.
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.
