1200/1400MHz 1000W Amplifier

The VBA 1200/1400-1000 is a class AB amplifier, based on silicon LDMOS technology operating in L- band. Designed to deliver 600V/m radiated field when used in conjunction with a suitable antenna and chamber, the amplifier is designed primarily to address automotive radar pulse EMC test standards, but also suitable for high duty cycle radar applications such as radar imaging.

The amplifier is suitable as a TWT replacement, offering solid state reliability and improved gain compression characteristics, and is capable of being operated in CW mode or pulsed via a dedicated BNC input. Circulator protection is fitted, providing effective isolation between the amplifier and reflected signals for enhanced ruggedness.

Forward and reflected power ratios are indicated via the multifunction front panel display.
