The AMP2136P-4KW from Exodus Advanced Communications is a Solid-State Power Amplifier that operates from 2 to 4 GHz. It delivers a peak pulsed output power of 4 kW with a gain of more than 66 dB (gain adjustment range of 20 dB). The SSPA has a pulse width of up to 100 µs, 6% duty cycle, and a pulse droop of less than 1 dB. It has a rise/fall time better than 50 ns and a maximum input return loss of 10 dB. This class AB amplifier is equipped with in-built protection circuits that offer input protection up to 10 dBm. It has harmonics of -20 dBc and spurious levels below -60 dBc.
The AMP2136P-4KW has a local LCD and remote flexible interfaces including ethernet RJ-45, RS422/485, USB, and an optional GPIB interface. It is available in a 10U rack-mounted enclosure that measures 430 x 444 x 580 mm with N-type (female) input connectors and SC-type (female) output connectors. The SSPA is ideal for EMI/RFI, laboratory, HIRF, radar, and high-power pulse applications.
The amplifier requires an AC supply voltage of 100 - 240 V and consumes less than 1.5 kW of power.
