HIGH-POWER LOW-FREQUENCY AMPLIFIERS FOR ACCELERATOR APPLICATIONS

A family of amplifiers resulting from extensive research and development into ultra-available and highly efficient solid state amplifier technology is available from CPI TMD.

The aims of the development were to avoid the traditional pitfalls of solid state technology, such as poor efficiency and low reliability. The resulting technology boasts excellent performance, coupled with availability, which is critically important for many applications where the system is required to operate 24 hours a day seven days a week.

These units can be configured as either pulsed or continuous wave (CW) amplifiers or generators, and frequencies from 10 MHz to 1.3 GHz can be provided using standardized designs, depending on the system requirements.

These high-power accelerator amplifiers are intended to replace triode-and tetrode-based low frequency systems where the availability, life or reliability of the tube technology has become a major issue.

The amplifier design is highly modular with redundant individual power amplifier modules and modular telecoms derived DC power supplies. The amplifiers are rated and configured to provide sufficient headroom to compensate for module failure without performance degradation and both the power amplifier modules and the DC power supplies are designed to be hot-swappable in the event of failure, enabling zero system down time.
