The new PTCM series of traveling wave tube (TWT) modular instrumentation amplifiers from TMD can be used for a variety of applications including EMC/radiated immunity, communications, EW, radar, and RF component testing in the DC – 40 GHz frequency range, up to 50 kW. These amplifiers now offer improved capabilities such as built-in self-testing, advanced fault diagnostics, modular, plug-and-play field replaceable PCBs, and Ethernet remote control and monitoring.
The PTCM series amplifiers include a standard yet customizable 6U chassis, and “soft” re-configurable control system enabling numerous options to be quickly configured. The state-of-the-art advanced “System-on-Chip” (SOC) microcircuit not only controls and synchronizes all of the power conversion circuitry in real time, but also provides the intelligence for all of the monitoring, control, data logging and user interface functionality.
