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 ...

Empower RF Systems Intros 1 to 2.5 GHz, 2 kW HPA in 8U Chassis

Empower RF Systems

Empower RF is pleased to announce it is it is shipping another new, industry leading RF amplifier system that complements the frequency coverage and power level "footprint" of our next generation, high power PA product family. Model 2180, covering 1 to 2.5 GHz and delivering an unprecedented 2 kW CW of broadband output power in a 8U, air cooled chassis is our latest market release. Offering unrivaled size, weight, and power advantages and building on a design architecture that has been a catalyst for technology upgrades from customers with diverse requirements from multiple markets, Model 2180 provides excellent performance for end applications that include, but are not limited to, test and measurement, electronic warfare, and communications. Customer specific product variations which can be leveraged from this baseline, 1 to 2.5 GHz platform, include high power pulse applications for S-Band radar and multi-kW "scaled up" power combinations for L and S-Band applications.

Empower RF Systems Intros 1 to 2.5 GHz, 2 kW HPA in 8U Chassis - RF Cafe

In addition to the size / power density breakthrough and the element of "portability" that has been solidified with the market introduction of this 1 to 3 GHz, 1 kW amplifier in a 5U chassis, additional features include:

  • Single RF input and output operating over the specified frequency ranges.
  • User selectable configuration and operation in three different modes  -  AGC (Automatic Gain Control), ALC (Automatic Level Control) and MGC (Manual Gain Control).
  • Optional Filter/Switches for improved harmonic rejection can be specified.
  • Compact, lightweight and portable for easier maneuverability in lab environments or tactical deployments, upgrades for extreme environmental conditions.
  • Enhanced ruggedness using the latest in high voltage RF transistors (GaN).
  • Fast Electronic VSWR Protection providing safe and reliable operation during adverse load conditions.
  • Modern and multi-faceted Monitoring and Control (M&C) user interfaces, including a Web browser, TCP/IP Ethernet, RS-485 interface and a front panel touchscreen display. (Optional IEEE-488 GPIB interface available).
  • Self-Protection and Diagnostics throughout the system including currents, voltages, forward and reverse power, temperature and VSWR.

User interface capabilities of this amplifier that are standard with Empower next generation designs allow the user to initiate remote management and diagnostics via an embedded web server, enabling network managed site status and control simply by connecting the unit's Ethernet port to a LAN. Using a web browser and the unit's IP address (IPV4) allows ease of access with the benefit of multilevel security. The control system core runs an embedded OS (Linux).
