The 75S1G6C from AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation is a Solid-State Power Amplifier (SSPA) that operates from 1 to 6 GHz. It delivers an output power of more than 75 W with a small signal gain of 54 dB. This Class A SSPA has spurious levels of -73 dBc and harmonic distortion of -30 dBc. The low level of spurious signals and linearity make it ideal for use in 5G testing applications and as a driver in testing wireless and communication components and subsystems. It is also suitable for EMC Test applications where continued operation into high VSWR loads including open and short circuits is required.
The 75S1G6C has built-in protection from input overdrive beyond 0 dBm along with protection from various failure conditions including over-temperature and power supply faults. It has a front panel display which 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. It is available in a rack-mount enclosure that measures 48.3 x 13.4 x 65.3 cm (no cabinet) with N-type (female) connectors and is ideal for use in EMC (military, aviation, automotive, commercial), radiated and conducted EMC testing, and general-purpose antenna and component testing.
The amplifier operates over an AC supply from 100 to 240 V (50-60 Hz) and consumes under 450 W of power. It has a 3A001 export classification.
