The new "A" Series amplifiers, for example, are 25% -- 50% smaller than previous models, yet the new size does not mean a reduction in power. These newer, smaller models fit easily into a control room; and because of the new design, they are more efficient, using less energy than other amplifiers. The smaller, more efficient design also results in an increased performance to price ratio. In other words you get more for your money.
AR’s solid state amplifier family provides you with the power (1 – 800 watts) and frequency (0.8 to 18 GHz) needed for wireless and EMC testing. These amplifiers boast low spurious signals, noise figures and distortion. They also generate 100% rated power and make it available to the load even when mismatch is severe. In addition, many of the amplifiers is this family allow you to upgrade your existing amplifier to higher power without purchasing new amplifiers as part of the “Subampability” concept.
AR has recently developed a line of hybrid power modules, or HPMs, to cover the 0.7 to 6 GHz frequency range. There are five different models available in this line with variations in output power, minimum gain, mismatch tolerance, harmonic distortion, and more. For more information on each individual amplifier module’s specifications, download the available datasheets below.
AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation has increased its offering of solid-state microwave amplifiers with a new family covering 4 to 8 GHz. This family includes models available in 15, 35, 60 and 120 watts. This microwave amplifier family is suitable for wireless test applications, and EMC testing for automotive requirements and also the new IEC 61000-4-3 standard
The new PTS6900 Solid State Power Amplifier (SSPA) from TMD is a low band CW amplifier operating within the 2 to 6 GHz frequency range, with nominal output power of 150 W, and 55 dB of gain. Utilizing the latest advances in 0.25 µm GaN MMIC technology and low loss power combiners, this amplifier is ideally used for EW/ECM applications.
AR’s 40S6G18B is a solid-sate amplifier covering the 6 – 18 GHz frequency range. When used with a sweep generator, it provides a minimum of 40 watts RF power. Like most of AR’s amplifiers, this model is ideal for applications that call for instantaneous bandwidth and high gain.
