High Power Amplifiers


Empower RF Systems offers the SKU 2222 solid state broadband high-power amplifier designed for multi-octave bandwidth high power CW, modulated and pulse applications. The 600 - 6000 MHz, 50 W amplifier employs advanced broadband RF matching networks and combining techniques, EMI/RFI filters, and qualified components for exceptional performance, long-term reliability, and high efficiency in operation.

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 AMP2033LC from Exodus Advanced Communications is a solid state, high-power amplifier designed for use in broadband EMI/RFI, lab, communications, and EW applications operating in the 6.0 – 18.0 GHz frequency range. It is also suitable for CW, pulse, and all single channel modulation standards.

Empower RF Systems offers a wide range of power amplifiers and stand-alone or high-power amplifiers for an extensive range of radar applications, including HR for over-the horizon (OTH), VHF for very long range and ground penetration, and UHF for very long range and foliage penetration.

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.

Ducommun presents the new Model AHP-29043925-G1 power amplifier with 8 W of voltage and operation in the 27-31 GHz frequency range. These newly developed amplifiers are designed to utilize GaN technology to achieve a small footprint with higher power, and provide a signal gain at 25 dB, and saturated power at 39 dBm.

The QPA1017D is Qorvo’s MMIC power amplifier operating from 5.7 – 7.0 GHz for C-band radar and satellite communications applications. Fabricated on Qorvo’s production 0.15 um GaN on SiC process, the amplifier produces 50 W of saturated output power with 21 dB of large-signal gain while achieving greater than 40% power-added efficiency.

Empower RF offers a family of liquid cooled, hot swappable SSPAs for high power applications. These devices feature new, scalable, solid state designs that replace tube technology for applications requiring tens and hundreds of kilowatts of CW and pulse power with frequency coverage from HF to X-band.
