Traveling wave tube amplifiers
We also offer a line of hybrid amplifiers that marry solid-state amplifiers and TWT power in a single unit. These models offer combinations of power and frequency carved out expressly for Telcordia (which requires suppressed harmonics) and EMC microwave applications. Each unit is designed for the 0.8 – 18 GHz frequency range and they provide 10, 20, 35 and 50 watts of CW power. Hybrids provide a cost-effective solution to frequency coverage problems by combining solid-state and TWT elements. They also eliminate the need for cable switching required when two amplifiers are used – a painstaking procedure that can lead to system errors and repeatability problems.
