An Industry First 350 Watts Solid State Amplifier from 0.7 to 6 GHz
Note: There are no slides to download for this presentation.
Amplifier Research has recently developed a new solid state, single band power amplifier that outperforms the competition in both output power and bandwidth. Intended as an alternative to TWTA (traveling wave tube amplifier), the 350S1G6 provides wideband high linear output power over a single frequency band of 0.7 to 6 GHz. While the competition only offers this bandwidth in a dual band configuration, the continuous single band operation of the 350S1G6 provides for simplicity of operation. Typical saturated output power above 400 Watts and P1dB above 300 Watts are achievable. In addition to the impressive output power, the 350S1G6 offers low harmonic distortion and high output load mismatch tolerance.
The 350S1G6 is the culmination of years of research and development of hybrid circuit designs utilizing the latest materials, devices and process improvements. The result is an amplifier with greater power density and lower production costs than previously possible.
