AR Solid-State Pulsed Amplifiers Should Be On Your Radar


For automotive and military EMC radiated immunity susceptibility testing, as well as radar and communication applications, there is now a very attractive alternative to Traveling Wave Tube Amplifiers (TWTA’s).

AR’s new offerings include various frequency ranges and output power levels to meet several standards, or designs can be tailored to suit your specific application. These amplifiers feature a touchscreen control panel, GPIB interface, TTL gating, fault monitoring, and forced air cooling.

  • Octave Frequencies: 1-2 GHz and 2-4 GHz
  • Narrowband Frequencies: 1.2-1.4 GHz & 2.7-3.1 GHz
  • Power Levels: 1 kW to 150 kW
  • Harmonic Distortion of -18dBc @ 1dB compression point
  • Pulse Widths to 100 μsec. & Duty Cycles to 10%
  • High Mean Time To Failure (MTTF)
  • Mismatch Tolerance – Will operate without damage or oscillation with any magnitude and phase of source and load impedance.
  • Numerous Applications Possible – Automotive, MIL STD 464, DO-160 and Military Radar
