High Power Amplifiers

PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

The new model 5163 from Ophir RF is a 50 Watt solid state broadband amplifier designed to cover the 0.8 to 4.2 GHz frequency range. This high power, compact amplifier features excellent 3rd order intercept point, high gain, and a wide dynamic range from its use of Class A/B linear power devices.

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 new PE15A5025 from Pasternack is a 50 Watt GaN coaxial power amplifier capable of operation in the 2 – 6 GHz frequency range. Delivering high levels of output power and efficiency and a high output load impedance, this power amplifier is ideal for military radar, jamming systems, medical imaging, wireless communications, and electronic warfare applications.

The dB-4139 TWT Amplifier (TWTA) is designed to operate within the 6 – 18 GHz frequency range and provide up to 200 W CW output power for electronic countermeasure (ECM), electronic warfare (EW) simulation, and multi-band communication applications.

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 3000W1000B self-contained, air-cooled, broadband, solid-state amplifier is ideal for applications where instantaneous bandwidth and high gain are required. When used with an RF sweep generator, this amplifier will nominally provide over 3000 watts of power. The device also utilizes push-pull circuitry in the interest of lowering distortion and improving stability.

The new Series BHE Amplifiers from Comtech PST are arranged in a wide variety of configurations with operating frequency ranges from 20 to 1000 MHz. These AB linear amplifiers are designed to provide load VSWR protection by way of an electronic power output turndown system employing negative feedback techniques. The system is self-correcting as a function of load VSWR to infinity, at any phase angle with a typical response time of 60 µsec.

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.
