TMD Technologies Limited (TMD) will be attending the International Particle Accelerator Conference (IPAC) in Vancouver from 29 April to 4 May to highlight its potential in providing cutting edge products for mainstream science as well as the opportunity to meet and interact with relevant accelerator scientists, engineers, students, and industry representatives.

TMD’s modular architecture, solid state RF amplifiers employ innovative power combining methods to give many user benefits: The systems are very compact, typically one 19-inch rack/100 kW (pulse), with frequencies available from 20 MHz to 1.3 GHz. Operating as CW/pulse systems (with long pulse systems available) they have a wall plug efficiency competitive with tube technology.

With high MTBF and low MTTR, these highly efficient amplifiers are robustly resistant to VSWR mismatch, are easily maintainable with ‘hot swap’ availability, and exhibit no loss of power from any single element failure. The amplifiers can be combined to provide microwave power capability.


Solid state unit from Rosatom-NIITFA – in collaboration with TMD to offer the scientific world a range of revolutionary solid state amplifiers.

Richard Patrick, TMD’s Business Development Manager commented: “Our collaboration with the Rosatom-NIITFA organization has now enabled us to offer the scientific world a range of solid state amplifiers that are not only revolutionary, but also ultra-available to customers”.

He added: “With a host of advanced features, these amplifiers are ideal for many applications, including synchrotrons; LINACs for scientific, experimentation/particle physics and spallation systems; medical therapy equipment; and cyclotrons for radioisotope production – with the ability to upgrade existing systems.”

Other products from TMD’s extensive portfolio include high power, very low phase noise travelling wave tube (TWT) amplifiers, brazed UHV components, and electron guns.
