30 Watt Solid State GaN Amplifier Operates up to 6 GHz

Empower RF has released model 1219, a single band solid state GaN module delivering over 30 Watts (40 Watts typical) of power from 0.6 to 6 GHz band. Empower RF is the first amplifier manufacturer to cover this bandwidth with an affordable COTS product.

The 1219 utilizes 50V GaN on SiC transistors which have lower leakage currents and higher thermal conductivity and is a more reliable technology than GaN on Si. An added benefit, 50V devices require about half the input current as their 28V counterparts which reduces power supply cost, size, and weight.

This compact class AB amplifier is suitable for broadband mobile communications, jamming, and product test applications. Control and monitoring includes both discrete and digital RS485 interfaces for

  • Gain Adjustment
  • Temperature Monitoring
  • Input Current Monitoring
  • Reset/PA Blanking
  • Alarm

The module is available with the mating connector/pigtail and optional Control Software which can be used to optimize module performance out of the box. Heat sinks and a fan assembly is also available.
