dB Control offers a new dB-4150 smart microwave power module (MPM) consisting of a solid state amplifier and a vacuum power booster. It is designed to provide 100 Watts pulsed/CW RF output power, and operate in the 6 to 18 GHz frequency range.
CPI’s Beverly Microwave Division presents the VSC3645 GaN 4.2 kW pulsed solid state power amplifier module operating in the C-band (5.2 – 5.9 GHz). This high efficiency, high power, compact amplifier is highly efficient, easy to maintain, and is designed to easily create high power C-band radar transmitters.
These new amplifier models employ a new design that delivers more than twice the power of older models. The new, more efficient design consumes less power, and incorporates both USB and Ethernet interfaces in addition to the standard IEEE and RS-232 interfaces.
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.
