A brand new microwave power module (MPM) is being launched by TMD Technologies at the IEEE's International Microwave Symposium in Boston, MA. The PTX8207 includes a "next generation" high power mini-TWT to provide a wider frequency range and higher power than previous models. The PTX8207 is specified to provide a mid-band power of 140 W and an operating frequency range of 4.5 to 18 GHz.
The MPM includes a high performance modulator to permit pulsed or CW operation, which makes the PTX8207 equally suitable for radar, EW and communications applications.
As with all TMD's MPMs, it provides high efficiency and reliability and is ultra compact and lightweight. All components are fully integrated, making installation of the MPM as a "drop in" amplifier block, simple and safe.
The module has already generated considerable interest, and has secured orders from Europe and the Middle East. Demonstration units are available now for customer evaluation, and one will be at a potential US customer's premises at the time of the show.TMD Technologies can be found on Stand 2714 at the IEEE International Microwave Symposium on 9-11 June 2009, Boston, MA. Literature will be available on the stand or via the TMD website at www.tmd.co.uk..
