The model 2180 from Empower RF is a 2000-W 1-GHz to 2.5-GHz GaN on SiC continuous -wave (CW) amplifier with breakthrough power density. Multimode capabilities of the HPA (High Power Amplifier) include AGC, ALC, MGC as well as selectable modulation modes that ease system integration. The amplifier’s operating mode versatility and linear performance has the model in use for Satcom uplink, GPS jamming, cyber/EW, effects testing, and directed energy research. Pulse mode with blanking is included.
With unrivaled size, weight, and power the 2180 HPA offers easier maneuverability in lab environments or tactical deployments.
Additional features include:
- Fast electronic VSWR protection providing safe and reliable operation during adverse load conditions.
- Monitoring and control user interfaces include a Web browser, TCP/IP Ethernet, RS-485 interface and a front panel touchscreen display. No software required.
- Optional filter/switches for improved harmonic rejection can be specified.
- Self-protection and diagnostics throughout the system include currents, voltages, forward and reverse power, temperature and VSWR.
