The 1222 from Empower RF Systems is a Solid-State power amplifier module that provides over 250 W of peak power from 9 to 10 GHz with pulse widths up to 500 µsec and 20% duty cycles. The amplifier has an Enable/Disable time of less than 250 ns and its gain can be controlled with digital or analog interfaces. It utilizes 48V GaN on SiC devices and is lightweight, highly reliable, and rugged. The amplifier is ideal for X-Band radar applications.
This amplifier has built-in control, monitoring & protection circuits for over-temperature, over-voltage, reverse polarity & over-current conditions. It can be controlled and monitored via an RS485 serial interface. The amplifier is available in a small and rugged package that measures 7 x 4 x 1 inches and with SMA-female connectors.
