Amplifier Research 10S4G18 Solid State Amplifier 4 GHz 18 GHz 10W

Description

Amplifier Research 10S4G18 is a portable, self-contained, air-cooled, broadband, completely solid-state amplifier designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth, high gain and linearity are required.

The Model 10S4G18, when used with a sweep generator, will provide a minimum of 10 watts of RF power instantaneously from 5 to 18 GHz and 7 watts from 4 to 5 GHz. The 10 watt model can be expanded in an incremental fashion to 20 or 40 watts inside the same cabinet.

The Model 10S4G18 is equipped with a Digital Control Panel (DCP) which provides both local and remote control of the amplifier. The DCP uses a graphic Liquid Crystal Display, menu assigned softkeys, a single rotary knob, and a dedicated power on/off switch to offer extensive control and status reporting capability. The display provides gain setting and reports of internal amplifier status. Special features include a gain control and input overdrive protection.

All amplifier control functions and status indications are available remotely in GPIB/IEEE-488 format, RS-232 hardwire and fiber optic, USB, and Ethernet. The bus interface connector is located on the back panel and positive control of local or remote operation is assured by a keylock on the front panel of the amplifier.

The Model 10S4G18 is designed to have low spurious signals, linearity and is extremely load tolerant which enables it to be used in many RF applications such as: RF susceptibility testing, antenna/component testing, and communication technology testing. It can be used as a test instrument covering multiple frequency bands and is suitable for a variety of communication technologies such as CDMA, W-CDMA, TDMA, GSM, UWB, WiMAX etc.
