dB-3908 TWT Amplifier

The dB-3908 TWT Amplifier (TWTA) is designed to use two wideband, periodic permanent magnet (PPM)-focused TWTs to amplify CW, AM, FM or pulse-modulated signals. The dB-3908 offers higher saturated output power and improved harmonic performance when compared to a single TWT approach.

The dB-3908 has only one RF input and one RF output, making the device extremely easy to operate. It utilizes the proprietary transformer fabrication, encapsulation a high-voltage potting techniques it has developed specifically for demanding military applications. Other applications for dB-3908 TWT Amplifier include RFI/EMI/EMC testing, antenna pattern and radar cross-section measurements, and electronic warfare (EW) simulations.

dB-3908 TWT Amplifier Features Include:

  • 15kW peak typical, 6% duty, 2.9 to 3.3 GHz
  • Low harmonics and spurious
  • Extensive BIT and status monitoring
  • Local or remote operation
  • Fault isolation
