Broadband Amplifiers


OPHIR RF’s model 4136 is a 50 Watt broadband amplifier designed for applications operating in the 6.0-18 GHz frequency range. This amplifier utilizes Class A linear power devices that provide an excellent 3rd order intercept point, high gain, and a wide dynamic range.

Empower RF Systems’ 1189 is a 100 Watts broadband high power amplifier module operating in the 500 – 2500 MHz frequency range. It’s ideal for test, communications, and military/defense applications. This amplifier features a small form factor package of 7.4 x 3.6 x 1.6, allowing for easy integration into compact system designs.

The new Model 2180 from Empower RF is a high power RF amplifier system designed to cover the 1 to 2.5 GHz frequency range, and deliver 2 kW CW of broadband output power in an 8U, air cooled  chassis. The amplifier features unrivaled size, weight, and power advantages for many test and measurement, electronic warfare, and communication applications.

Ophir RF’s 6010 broadband high power RF amplifier is ideal for NMR applications. It operates in the 20 to 1000 MHz frequency range and has a saturated output power of 125 Watts (min). It also has +52 dB (min) small signal gain, 50dB (min) blanking, <5uS blanking speed, -20 dBc (typ) harmonics @90 Watts, >-60 dBc (typ) @90 Watts, and much more. Additional specifications can be found on the available datasheet.

The Model 500S1G6 from AR is a solid-state broadband amplifier that operates over the 0.7 to 6 GHz frequency range, and is designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth, high gain, and linearity are required. The low level of spurious signals and linearity of this device makes the 500S1G6 ideal for use as a driver amplifier in testing wireless and communication components and subsystems, and EMC testing applications.

TMD Technologies offers a broad range of rugged amplifiers and transmitters for radar, EW, and communications applications. Products in this range are fully ESS tested, and are designed specifically for harsh environments in terms of vibration, shock, and temperature extremes.

Aethercomm Model Number SSPA 0.020-6.000-35 is a high power, super broadband, Gallium Nitride RF amplifier that operates from 20 MHz to 6000 MHz. This PA is ideal for broadband military platforms as well as commercial applications because it is robust and offers high power over a multi-decade bandwidth with decent power added efficiency. This is an industry first for bandwidth, power and efficiency in a package like this. This amplifier operates from a base plate temperature -40°C to +75°C for maximum performance. It is packaged in a modular housing that is 7.65(w)” by 2.5(l)” by 1.27(h)”. This amplifier has a typical P3dB between 35 to 50 watts at room temperature.
The CHPA0618-1 ultra-broadband power amplifier incorporates gallium arsenide (GaAs) monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) technology into CAP’s revolutionary, patented Spatium™ broadband spatial combining architecture to achieve outstanding solid state power levels across the amplifier’s extended 6-18 GHz frequency range.
