The Model 500S1G6A 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 500S1G6A, when used with a sweep generator, will provide a minimum of 500 W of RF power.
The Model 500S1G6A 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 and a single rotary knob to offer status reporting and control capability. The display provides Forward Power and Reflected Power values plus amplifier status. Special features include gain control and RF output level protection.
All amplifier control functions and status indications are available remotely in GPIB/IEEE488 format, RS232 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 key lock on the front panel of the amplifier.
The low level of spurious signals and linearity of the Model 500S1G6A make it ideal for use as a driver amplifier in testing wireless and communication components and subsystems. 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, etc. It is also suitable for EMC Test applications where undistorted modulation envelopes are desired.
