80MHz – 1000MHz 1000W Amplifier

The VBA1000-1000c is a member of our family of 80-1000MHz high power amplifiers, designed primarily for EMC applications. Like all our products of the VBA1000 series, it is based on our unique GaAs technology, offering the user the benefits of higher linearity, ruggedness and efficiency than its silicon-based counterparts and lower cost than the more recent GaN additions to the marketplace. The amplifier operates in class A, the benefits for EMC applications being very low distortion and tolerance of 100% mismatch. Fold-back protection is neither fitted nor needed! This makes it supremely suited for very demanding antenna and test chamber requirements. The amplifier can be controlled from either the front panel or remote control via the Ethernet, USB and GPIB interfaces. The digital interface system manages enabling and disabling the amplifier, monitoring power levels, monitoring power supply health, communicating with the control computer and implementing electrical interlocks. The keypad and display interface is used for monitoring amplifier state, power levels, interlock states etc. and for configuration option.
