Rack-Mount Continuous Wave TWTAs For Electronic Warfare Simulation And RF Testing

Source: dB Control

dB Control introduces two rack-mount, continuous wave (CW) traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs) designed for applications such as electronic warfare (EW) simulation, RFI susceptibility testing, RF components testing, and more. The dB-4345 is a S/C-band TWTA operating in the 2 to 6 GHz range at 325 Watts CW. The dB-4311M is an I/J-band TWTA at 6 to 18 GHz at 300 Watts CW.

Each amplifier features an embedded microcontroller that provides Ethernet interface and control/protection functions. Fault diagnostics and status indication functions are also embedded within the TWTAs, and no outside controllers or interconnect cabling are necessary. These TWTAs feature 19-inch rack-mount configuration with integral forced-air cooling.
