700MHz – 4200MHz 18W Amplifier

The VBA0742 – 18 is a 700 – 4200MHz high power amplifier, designed for applications where a rugged Class A mismatch tolerant amplifier is required. The amplifier is based on high performance extra wideband GaN output stages and utilises Vectawave proprietary Quadrature Hybrid combining techniques, minimising loss for more efficient solution.

The amplifier can be controlled remotely via the Ethernet, USB and GPIB interfaces. The digital interface system manages enabling and disabling the amplifier, communicating with the control computer and implementing electrical interlocks. The amplifier operates in Class A, with very low distortion and tolerance of 100% mismatch without foldback.
