Title: RF Power Amplifier Considerations for Public Safety/Mission Critical Communications

Date: October 6, 2021

Time: 8am PT / 11am ET

Sponsored by: thinkRF

Presented by: Russell Smith, RF & Hardware Designer

A variety of law enforcement, public safety and emergency communications professionals rely on RF power amplifiers to effectively carry out their critical missions. In order to ensure the highest degree of reliability and versatility, an RF power amplifier needs to be designed from the ground-up to ensure that it supports a variety of operational scenarios. This webinar will cover the key requirements required to address a broad variety of scenarios and how they can be addressed in a cost-effective manner. This will be exemplified by the thinkRF H1000A RF power amplifier that was designed from the ground-up to address the needs of demanding field use.
