Hi Everyone,
Does anyone know where can I find an RF/Microwave Power Amplifier in the range of 1-2.5 GHz up to 500 Watts. I found major manufacturers that they sell them but nobody even has it for sell either. Nothing readily availbale. My Frequency of interest is at 1.5 GHz and 2 GHz. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi,
That's a good question. I am trying to qualify one of our parts that is able to carry such high power at that frequency. I can not say where would it be used but it is for space, millitary application.

Well that answers the "what on earth...." part of my questions. Thanks.

If all you want to test is power handling then the 2500 MHz part of your quest is easy... get a $30 microwave oven from walmart. They are 600 W or so.

As for your whole frequency range, your question is way out of my areas of knowledge. I expect someone here will answer your question soon. Good luck.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
