Solid State Amplifiers


The NuPower™ L60T01 is a L- and S-band solid-state power amplifier designed to deliver over 60 Watts of RF power in the 960 to 1390 MHz frequency range to extend the operational range of airborne telemetry links and transmitters. Based on the latest GaN technology, the amplifier’s 25% power efficiency at rated power and <10 in3 form factor make it ideal for size, weight, and power-constrained airborne RF telemetry, tactical communication systems, and electronic warfare systems.

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.

This series of solid state amplifiers have been designed to cover the 1.0 GHz to 4.0 GHz frequency range in two bands (1 GHz to 2 GHz and 2 GHz to 4 GHz). Several models are available with 30W/17W, 30W/30W, 55W/17W, 55W/30W, 55W/55W, 100W/17W, 100W/55W, 100W/100W, 200W/100W, 200W/200W, 400W/100W, and 400W/200W P1dB levels. Information on specifications can be accessed on the datasheets below.

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.

AR’s 30S1G6 is a solid-sate amplifier covering the 0.7 – 6 GHz frequency range. When used with a sweep generator, it provides a minimum of 30 watts RF power. Like most of AR’s amplifiers, this model is ideal for applications that call for instantaneous bandwidth and high gain.

The BBM3Q5KHM (SKU 1122) is suitable for broadband mobile jamming and band-specific high power linear applications in the P/L/S frequency bands. This compact module utilizes high power advanced GaN devices that provide excellent power density, high efficiency, wide dynamic range and low distortion.

CPI’s Beverly Microwave Division presents the VSS3607 GaN solid state power amplifier (SSPAs) operating in the S-band (2.7 – 2.9 GHz). These high efficiency, high power, compact amplifiers are easy to maintain, and are designed for use in air surveillance radar applications.

This is a compact, high power amplifier module with stop frequencies from 2110 MHz to 2170 MHz ideal for broadband mobile jamming and band specific high power linear applications. It features high reliability and ruggedness, a small form factor along with a light weight, built in control, monitoring, and protection circuits, 50 ohm input/output impedance, a solid-state class AB linear design, and more. High power advanced GaN devices are used in order to achieve good power density, high efficiency, a wide dynamic range, and low distortions.
