The Model 20S6G18-L is a portable, self-contained, liquid-cooled, broadband, Class A solid-state amplifier designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth, high gain, and linearity are required. The Model 20S6G18-L, when used with a sweep generator, will provide a minimum of 20 W of RF power instantaneously from 6 to 18 GHz. The 20 W model can be expanded to 40 W inside the same cabinet.
The Model 20S6G18-L is equipped with a Digital Control Panel (DCP) which provides both local and remote control of the amplifier. The DCP uses a color LCD touch screen display to indicate the operating status and fault conditions if an overtemperature or power supply fault has occurred. The unit can be returned to operate when the condition has been cleared. Special features include gain control and input overdrive protection.
All amplifier control functions and status indications are available remotely in GPIB/IEEE488 format, RS-232 hardwire and fiber optic,
USB, and Ethernet. The buss interface connector is located on the back panel and positive control of the local or remote operation is via the front panel of the amplifier.
The Model 20S6G18-L 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.
