Empower RF announced delivery of the model 2241, a GaN solid-state power amplifier pulse emitter designed for new radar applications where portability and extended range are key requirements. Across the operating band of 9 to 10 GHz, the model 2241 provides over 1000 W peak power in a compact 3U chassis. Flexible waveform handling is a key feature. The 2241 is capable of long pulses, high duty cycles and a derated long pulse mode. The unit is controlled through the front panel touch screen, M2M SCPI and peer/LAN-connected PC and web browser with no software to install. Production Test Data Available upon request.
