The Model 500S1G6C is a solid-state, Class A design, self-contained, air-cooled, broadband power amplifier designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth, high gain, and linearity are required. It will provide a minimum of 500 W across its operating bandwidth of 1.0 – 6.0 GHz. Protection from input overdrive beyond 0 dBm is provided and protection from various failure conditions, including over-temperature and power supply faults.
A front panel display indicates the operational status and fault conditions. All amplifier control functions and status indications are available remotely using GPIB/IEEE-488, RS-232, fiber-optic serial, USB, or Ethernet. Interface connectors are located on the back panel. A switch on the front panel manages the local and remote operations.
This is a multiple-purpose amplifier. The low level of spurious signals and linearity make it ideal for use as a driver in testing wireless and communication components and subsystems. By covering such a wide bandwidth, it is suitable for 5G testing applications. Due to the Class A design, it is also suitable for EMC Test applications where continued operation into high VSWR loads, including open and short circuits, is required.
