About Empower RF Systems
Founded in 1999, Empower RF Systems is a global leader in power amplifier
solutions that are critical to defense, commercial, and industrial market applications. With our origins in the design of
broadband and band-specific solid state power amplifiers, Empower continues to advance the science of RF power amplification
to produce rugged, power efficient, and cost-effective solutions in the industry. It is our priority to design and deliver high
quality, innovative products which solve customer systems and business requirements. Operating globally and continuing to expand
our technology resources, Empower RF has recorded impressive growth since its inception. Our customer base includes market
leading OEMs, government agencies, and academic institutions with an array of demanding performance requirements.
Design and Technology Innovations
Empower RF product lines incorporate state-of-the-art GaN, LDMOS, MOSFET, GaAsFET and bipolar device technologies. Our extensive
library of product designs includes over four hundred documented solutions ranging from basic-function PA modules to complete,
multifunction PA assemblies with embedded software and controllers. Empower RF leverages “building block” combinations of these
documented solutions and the extensive experience of our technical team to react swiftly to new requirements and to offer a variety
of cost-effective, value-added solutions.
Assurance of Supply
Empower RF currently has two fully equipped R&D facilities, in-house manufacturing capabilities, and CM partnerships to handle both
small and large scale requirements. The company is ITAR registered and ISO certified. In addition to our Inglewood facility, the company
has a fully equipped design center in
Holbrook, New York and additional
design / manufacturing partnerships in the US and South Korea.
Empower is currently supporting contracts that range from engineering prototypes and low to medium volumes to production programs with much
higher run rates. The specific arrangements for build and test support vary depending on the job, but in all cases, final QA and product
certification occurs in Inglewood.
Company’s evolution and today’s value proposition is built on:
- Mature, building block technology for modules, rack mount amplifiers, and
multi-function, PA integrated solutions up to 6 GHz.
Configurable and scalable output power combinations from hundreds of watts up to multi-kW’s.
- Library of proven, tested and fielded power amplifier designs using an array of
power semiconductor technologies - demonstrated breadth of circuit and device modeling expertise.
- Expanded team of knowledgeable and experienced power amplifier designers - credentialed
engineers with industry recognition in product applications including complex digital waveforms, digital modulations,
Gaussian and broadband jamming techniques.
- Understanding and adoption of digital control circuitry, microprocessor controls, status,
monitoring, user interfaces, SPI, RS-232, RS-485, Ethernet TCP/IP and Web Based STMP protocols.
- Expanded footprint of key program engagements and focused attention on key markets.
Investments in a strong channel partner network and global inventory program to insure COTS product availability and
outstanding customer support.
