Ultra-Broadband Solid-State HPAs
Exodus Advanced Communications has released the latest in a family of ultra-broadband, high power, solid-state amplifiers. With a linear GaAs FET hybrid, class AB design to achieve maximum output, the AMP3033 amplifier module delivers 7 W CW typical output power from 24 to 31 GHz. Minimum power is 4 W from 24 to 25 GHz and 6 to 7 W across the rest of the band. The amplifier has a minimum power gain of 38 dB and 4 dB peak-to-peak maximum flatness with constant input power (+3 dBm maximum).
The AMP3033 operates from a nominal +20 VDC bias and draws 4 A typical, 6 A maximum, and is protected for load VSWRs up to 5:1. This module features a small form factor (4.33" × 4.33" × 1.06"), making it suitable for a number of applications, including EMI/EMC susceptibility testing, millimeter wave component testing and electronic warfare. The AMP3033 is also available as a rack mounted chassis. The power amplifier (PA) is assembled in a 19" rack mountable cabinet and features self-contained air cooling and AC operation. An optional state-of-the-art controller that supports Ethernet TCP/IP, RS422/485 and remote Bluetooth connectivity is available. A front panel touch screen is also available as an option.
Exodus Advanced Communications designs and manufactures solid-state RF PAs covering frequency bands from 100 kHz to 47 GHz, achieving module output power greater than 1 kW and complete systems exceed 10 kW. Other standard ultra-broadband products include a family of 10, 20 and 40 W PAs covering 6 to 18 GHz and up to 250 W over 2 to 6 GHz. Exodus PAs integrate discrete LDMOS, GaAs and GaN devices with ceramic substrates using hybrid chip and wire assembly processes. In-house capabilities include RF circuit, system mechanical and electrical and digital circuit design, control software development and prototype verification.
