Solid State Amplifiers


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.

Aethercomm Part Number SSPA 9.5-10.5-25 is a high power, X Band, Solid State Power Amplifier that operates from 9.5 to 10.5 GHz. The P1dB at 25ºC is 20 watts typical. The saturated output power is 30 watts typical at 25ºC. Minimum small signal gain is 45 dB. Typical gain flatness is ±2.0 dB across the band. Noise Figure is 5.5 dB typical at 25ºC. Input VSWR is 2.0:1 maximum. Output VSWR is 2.0:1 maximum.

This series of solid state amplifiers operates in the 1.0 to 2.0 GHz frequency range. Eleven different models are available with 30W, 55W, 65W, 100W, 125W, 200W, 250W, 400W, 500W, 800W, and 1000W P1dB levels. Like all MILMEGA amplifiers, this series is ideal for military/defense, EMC testing, communications, R&D, and high energy physics applications. Information on specifications can be found 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 3000S1G2z5 is a solid state amplifier covering the 1 to 2.5 GHz frequency range while providing 3000 watts of output power. It’s ideal for radiated immunity testing and other applications that require instantaneous bandwidth, high gain, and linearity. It’s also an ideal TWT replacement.

ETS-Lindgren offers the Model 8100-052 microwave solid state power amplifier (PA) specifically designed for EMC applications that include IEC 61000-4-3, 30 V/m automotive requirements. This 500 W PA utilizes GaAs technology, and delivers an improved design and higher efficiency performance over silicon-based amplifiers.

The Model 500A250B is a self-contained, air-cooled, broadband, completely solid state amplifier designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth and high gain are required. Push-pull LDMOS circuitry is utilized in all high power stages in the interest of lowering distortion and improving stability.

AR offers 30S1G6AB, 50S1G6AB, 100S1G6AB, and 300S1G6AB models of solid-state; 30, 50, 100, and 300 Watt Class AB amplifiers that instantaneously cover the 1-6 GHz frequency band in single benchtop unit.
