The 30/20S1G18B from AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation is a dual-band, broadband, solid-state amplifier that operates from 0.7 to 18 GHz. It provides 30 W of output power with a gain of over 44 dB, and a noise figure of 10 dB. The power level and gain can be controlled from a Digital Control Panel (DCP) located on the device.
The portable, self-contained, air-cooled amplifier is available in a module that measures 19.8 x 13.4 x 24.5 inches with a cabinet and 19.0 x 12.3 x 24.5 inches without a cabinet. It is equipped with a Digital Control Panel (DCP) which provides both local and remote control interfaces like GPIB/IEEE-488 24-pin female format, 9-pin subminiature D (F) RS-232 hardwire & fiber optic, USB, and Ethernet.
This amplifier is designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth, high gain, and linearity are required. It provides low spurious signals, good linearity, and load tolerant capability that make it an ideal solution for many RF applications such as RF susceptibility testing, antenna/component testing, and communication technology testing. It can also be used as a test instrument covering multiple frequency bands and suitable for communication technologies like CDMA, W-CDMA, TDMA, GSM, UWB, WiMAX, etc.
