HIGH-POWER RADIO FREQUENCY (RF) AND MICROWAVE AMPLIFIERS, TWTA AND SOLID STATE

FOR EMC TESTING, ELECTRONIC WARFARE SIMULATION & SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS

CPI TMD's instrumentation amplifiers (high-power RF and microwave amplifiers) for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) high-intensity radiated field (HIRF) testing, military testing, electronic warfare simulation and scientific applications are based on the same switched-mode power supply technology as its rugged amplifiers. As a result, these instrumentation amplifiers have all the same performance and reliability advantages as the rugged product line, but have been neatly re-packaged into compact, lightweight and affordable rack-mountable units more suitable for less demanding physical environments. CPI TMD's new modular design (the PTCM range) has many user benefits, including advanced self-diagnostics, ethernet interfaces, remote management, VSWR protection and plug and play field replaceable power supplies.

CPI TMD's standard amplifiers, both TWT-based and solid state, are described in the tables below, covering the range 9 kHz to 40 GHz range in both pulsed and CW modes. In addition, special products can be designed to customers’ specific requirements.

The applications covered include:
  • EMC HIRF testing – meeting the most demanding RTCA/DO-160 requirements
  • Military testing for MIL Std 461 200 V/m
  • Scientific research
  • High-power component testing (PIM testing)
  • Electronic warfare simulation

CPI TMD has recently developed a range of ultra high power HIRF amplifiers that typically achieve over 10 kW output power. EMC test laboratories using CPI TMD amplifiers have generated output power of 14,000 V/m, easily complying with the latest, most demanding RTCA/DO-160 requirements. Both TWT and solid state instrumentation amplifier options are available.
