130 Watts CW 18 To 26.5 GHz Broadband TWT Amplifier. The Model 130T18G26z5 is a self contained, forced air cooled, broadband traveling wave tube (TWT) microwave amplifier designed for applications where wide instantaneous bandwidth, high gain and moderate power output are required. A reliable TWT provides a conservative 130 watts minimum at the amplifier output connector
AR’s new COO, John Kim, gives a quick summary of the AR service oriented culture and divisions worldwide at the 2018 IEEE EMC Symposium. #AR50YearsStrong
Measure frequency vs. time using the new Transient Mode measurement option on the Berkeley Nucleonics Phase Noise Tester. This measurement mode enables both wide band and narrow band measurements with high measurement rates and long measurement spans (track drift over time). Use the wide band measurement to analyze large frequency changes. Measure and characterize a 100 uS transient period between a 1 GHz and 2 GHz signal from an RF Signal Generator. Measure and characterize a 10 kHz frequency modulation.
This video provides a short tutorial on measuring ultra-low phase noise on a 100MHz OCXO using tunable external references. Measure over a wide range, 1Hz to 50MHz offset, using just 2 cross correlations. You can also measure -182 dBc at 1MHz, -177dBC at 10kHz, and -162 dBc at 1kHz.
At IEEE EMC SIPI 2018, AR demonstrates its new “AA” Series produce field strengths up to 50V/m in two band-specific models over the 18 to 40 GHz frequency range when driven with a suitable signal generator.
In this video, Sangam Baligar discusses multi-tone testing and the impact it has on time consumption and Return on Investment.
