GaN Module: 1219

April 9, 2019

Empower RF is pleased to announce the release of model 1219, a single band solid state GaN on SiC module delivering a minimum 30 W (40w typical) across its entire .6 to 6 GHz band. Empower RF is the first amplifier manufacturer to cover this bandwidth with an affordable COTS product.

The 1219 utilizes 50 V GaN on SiC transistors which have lower leakage currents and higher thermal conductivity and is a more reliable technology than GaN on Si. An added benefit, 50 V devices require about half the input current as their 28 V counterparts which reduces power supply cost, size, and weight.

This compact class AB amplifier is suitable for broadband mobile communications, jamming, and product test applications. Control and monitoring includes both discrete and digital RS485 interfaces for:

  • Gain Adjustment
  • Temperature Monitoring
  • Input Current Monitoring
  • Reset/PA Blanking
  • Alarm

The module comes with the mating connector/pigtail and optional Control Software is available to optimize module performance out of the box. Heat sink and fan assembly available.
