This application note describes the GC (gain control), MLC (maximum level control), and ALC (automatic level control) features available on AR-5000 Series amplifiers. Controlling the gain, output power and linearity performance of a power amplifier enables the operator to maximize the performance of the system. Maintaining the proper power levels with the best gain gives the system the best link distances while minimizing distortion and protecting subsequent RF equipment. The AR-5000 gives the operator the ability to fully manage its performance thru a flexible interface to set up GC, MLC, and ALC. Download the application note for more information.
