The BBS4A6AUT (SKU 2170) is an L and S band microwave power amplifier suitable for multi-octave bandwidth high power CW, modulated, and pulse applications. This amplifier utilizes high power GaN devices that provide wide frequency response, high gain, high peak power capability, and low distortions. Exceptional performance, long-term reliability and high efficiency are achieved by employing advanced broadband RF matching networks and combining techniques, EMI/RFI filters, and all qualified components. The amplifier is constructed within one single 5RU drawer including the forced air-cooling. The system comes standard to operate from a three phase 208VAC line-to-line or optionally single phase 180-260VAC supply.
The model 2170 is an ideal replacement for the common 500 watt and 1Kw 1Ghz to 2.5 Ghz TWT and is more reliable, has a longer life, better harmonic distortion, comparable in weight and size, and less expensive than the now obsolete TWTA in that band.
Although specified at 1 Kilowatt to 3 Ghz, this unit will provide over 600 V/m to 3.1 Ghz for Ford and GM Automotive Radiated Immunity testing as well as other demanding Test and Measurement Applications including:
Radiated Immunity, EMI and EMC, TWT and TWTA replacement
