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 is pleased to be releasing additional, industry leading power amplifier models that compliment the frequency coverage and power level "footprint" of our next generation, high power PA product family. Model 2175, covering 80 to 1000 MHz and delivering 500W of broadband output power in a 3U, air cooled chassis is market released and available for immediate purchase. Offering unrivaled size / 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 2175 provides excellent performance for end applications that include, but are not limited to, test and measurement, electronic warfare, and communications. This unit is the "baby brother" to the highly successful 2162 (1 kW in 5U chassis) and both models are included in Empower’s inventory program with Richardson RFPD: http://www.empowerrf.com/products/distribution.php
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).
