Empower RF Systems has established itself as the technologically superior global supplier of solid State broadband and band-specific solid state power amplifier modules and intelligent rack mount air and liquid cooled systems for radar, electronic warfare, communications and RF product testing applications. Power levels range from tens of watts to hundreds of Kilowatts, CW and Pulsed, at frequencies from HF to X band. Our customer base includes market leading OEMs, government agencies, and academic institutions with an array of demanding RF and environmental performance requirements. Our lineup of products range from basic-function PA modules to complete, multifunction PA assemblies with embedded software functions, user GUI and remote monitoring and control. Power levels range from tens of watts to multi kilowatts in both CW and pulse configurations. The company is headquartered in Southern California, ITAR registered, and ISO certified. In addition to our Inglewood facility, Empower has a fully equipped design center in Holbrook, NY and additional design / manufacturing partnerships in the US and South Korea.
LIQUID COOLING: TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED AMPLIFIERS
This breakthrough liquid cooled, solid state design replaces tube technology bringing new capabilities and improved fidelity to applications where tens and hundreds of kilowatts of CW and Pulse power are required. This remarkable distributed architecture allows hot swapping for mission critical applications and yields extreme effective MTBF resulting in lower lifetime total cost of ownership than contemporary tube and solid state designs.
Rugged Air Cooled Multi-Mode SSPAs
A technologically advanced architecture from Empower RF Systems is yielding unprecedented size and weight reduction for 500W,
1 kW, and multi-kW power amplifier platforms. This family of amplifiers have been fielded using both LDMOS and GaN devices for user applications that include EMC / Radiated Immunity, Communications, EW, Radar, and RF Component Testing.
The array of user configurable power management modes makes these air cooled systems extremely flexible and multi-purpose.

Cost Effective Module Solutions
Manufacturers who integrate power amplifier stages in their products are supported with our full line of standard COTS modules and quick turn custom designs. These modules are used in a variety of applications as either a standalone PA or as an integral part of a higher level system. Designed for RF and mechanical “ease of integration”, these modules are gain adjustable, self-contained amplifiers with control and protection features that insure over temperature performance and reliable operation. Broadband and band specific variations of these products are available up to 10GHz and in various gain / output power configurations. Variations from our COTS products and full custom designs are available.
