35.5 GHz Outdoor Hub-Mount Ka-Band TWTA: dB-3840

Source: dB Control

The dB-3840 is a TWT Amplifier (TWTA) operating in the frequency range of 34.5 to 35.5 GHz providing 700 Watts minimum peak output power at a duty cycle of up to 10%. A wideband, periodic permanent magnet (PPM)-focused, conduction-cooled TWT is used for power amplification. The power supply topology uses proprietary low-noise, high-efficiency designs to operate the RF signal path. An embedded micro-controller provides the interface, control and protection functions and status indication for the TWT Amplifier. Standard interface protocol for remote operation is RS-485. Other protocols such as RS-232, RS-422, Ethernet, or custom interfaces are available as options. The TWT Amplifier is encased in an environmentally sealed package for outdoor and antenna pedestal mounted applications, and uses integral forced-air cooling for thermal management.
