About Empower RF Systems
-Amplifier Manufacturer

Founded in 1999, Empower RF Systems, based in Inglewood California, manufactures the most technologically advanced COT’s amplifier solutions for 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 the toughest, most efficient and cost-effective solu¬tions 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 and government agencies with an array of demanding performance requirements.


Products and Applications


Defense

Our broadband, high efficiency, high power modules and amplifier systems are critical building blocks in mission critical platforms that not only protect the modern warfighter, but also enable rapid communications, surveillance, and counter measure deployments.

Commercial

We offer power amplifier products that are suitable for wireless infrastructure, mobile broadcast, coverage-enhance¬ment repeaters and portable disas¬ter communications. With the addi¬tional demands of complex waveforms and linearization, we are answering the call for customized solutions.

Industrial and Scientific

Our products offer ultra-broadband power and precision required for all types of interference test¬ing and RFI-hardening verification. Multi-kW power combining and pulse requirements can be custom configured as part of an amplifier solution from Empower.

Empower RF provides the most modern, sophisticated, flexible and technologically advanced commercially available amplifiers in the world. Our product lines incorporate state-of-the-art GaN, LDMOS, MOSFET, GaAsFET and bipolar device technologies. Our extensive library of product designs includes over five 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.

Extending our technology leadership, Empower RF now offers scalable liquid cooled amplifiers for very high power applications. This unique design architecture is yielding unprecedented performance and scalability for SSPA’s delivering hundreds of kilowatts of pulse and CW power. This breakthrough design is being fielded using both LDMOS and GaN on SiC devices for user applications that include EW, Radar, Directed Energy, Satcom, EMC and RF Product Testing. This liquid cooled family replaces TWT’s with a solution that vastly improves signal fidelity for higher data rates, increased reliability, and lower total lifetime cost of ownership. AS

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, California 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.

RF Amplifier Manufacturer

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 and approved patents in product applications including complex digital waveforms, digital modulations, Gaussian and broadband jamming techniques.
  • Experienced software and firmware design team managing the development of digital control circuitry, microprocessor controls, status, monitoring, user interfaces, SPI, RS-232, RS-485, Ethernet TCP/IP and Web Based SMTP protocols.
  • Expanded footprint of key customer engagements and focused attention on key markets. Investments in a strong channel partner network and global inventory program to ensure COTS product availability and outstanding customer support.
