TMD Showcasing its Advancements in Instrumentation & Solid State Amplifiers at EuMW

At the European Microwave Week in Paris this week, UK-based provider of RF/Microwave solutions TMD Technologies Limited (TMD), is highlighting its newest, modular intelligent instrumentation amplifiers for EMC, threat simulation and laboratory use, and the company’s latest, innovative RF solid state amplifiers for cutting-edge mainstream science. Celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, the company is expected to be a major player at the event this time. The EuMW exhibition is being held from 1 to 3 October in Paris.

TMD’s Product Showcases and Highlights at the Event Include:

The New PTCM/Dual Combined Series

TMD is demonstrating its proven capability in the field of EMC/EMI with its PTCM Series instrumentation amplifiers. These advanced TWT (Travelling Wave Tube) based RF instrumentation amplifiers operate over a frequency range from DC to 40 GHz, with a power output up to 50 kW, and are designed to deliver the highest field strengths in the test environment. Furthermore, TMD can now offer a new ultra-high power, dual combined version of the PTCM amplifier for HIRF testing and other demanding applications across a variety of industry sectors and are already in the process of developing higher multiple combinations.

Of rugged, customizable 6U high rack mounting construction, the standard PTCM Series amplifiers offer superior user interface and maintainability, combined with a host of operational benefits that include modular design, self-diagnostics, graphical user interface, remote management, and VSWR reflected power protection. They are also designed to meet exacting military standards, offering the EMC industries’ highest MTBF.

The newly developed high power, dual combined version of the PTCM amplifier delivers more than 10 kW pulsed and greater than 4 kW CW, mainly covering the 2- 18 GHz range. This high performance is achieved by combining two TWTs and high voltage power supplies within one rack mountable amplifier – thus maintaining a single input and output.

Cutting Edge Solid State RF Amplifiers

TMD’s modular architecture, solid state RF amplifiers employ innovative power combining methods to provide many user benefits. These compact systems are typically based on one 19-inch rack / 100 kW (pulse), with frequencies available from 20 MHz to 1.3 GHz. Operating as CW or pulse systems (with long pulse systems available) they have a wall plug efficiency competitive with tube technology.

The highly efficient amplifiers are robustly resistant to VSWR mismatch, are easily maintainable with ‘hot swap’ availability, and exhibit no loss of power from any single element failure. TMD’s extensive portfolio includes high power, very low phase noise travelling wave tube (TWT) amplifiers, brazed UHV components, and electron guns.

Its collaboration with key partner, the Rosatom-NIITFA organization has enabled TMD to offer a wide range of solid state amplifiers that are revolutionary in design and now available to customers. Features include hot swap for both RF modules and DC power supplies to maximize system availability. These amplifiers are ideal for many applications, including tetrode amplifier replacement; synchrotrons; LINACs for scientific, experimentation/particle physics and spallation systems; medical therapy equipment; and cyclotrons for radioisotope production – with the ability to upgrade existing systems.
