  2. Microwave Products For EW Radar Applications

    CPI Beverly Microwave Division provides the industry proven design techniques and engineering expertise, to meet the rigid and dependable standards of electronic warfare products.

  3. CFA Theory Of Operation

    A CFA is a vacuum electron device (VED) which might best be described as part magnetron and part traveling wave tube (TWT). This device is used to generate power with high efficiency and voltage levels of a magnetron while the electronic interaction is with a traveling wave. This white paper further discusses CFA characteristics and its operational theory.

  4. TWT Theory Of Operation

    TWTs incorporate many basic components, including an electron gun, an RF circuit, an attenuator, and a collector. This white paper further discusses TWT characteristics and operational theory, including the effects of input/output conditions on TWTs, and cooling requirements.

  5. Magnetron Theory Of Operation

    A magnetron is a high power microwave oscillator in which the potential energy of an electron cloud near the cathode is converted into RF energy in a series of cavity resonators. The resonant frequency of a microwave cavity is determined by the physical dimension of the resonator together with the reactive effect of any perturbations to the inductive or capacitive portion of the equivalent circuit.

  6. LINAC Magnetrons Brochure

    LINAC Magnetrons are high power microwave oscillators that take the potential energy of an electron cloud near its cathode and convert it into RF energy. Their application areas are fairly diverse and can run the gamut from cooking to cancer therapy.
