What Is Pulse Shaping?

Empower RF Systems' Webinar Innovations in Jammer Technologies - RF CafeThe electromagnetic environment is changing at an increasing pace, and thus the importance of electronic warfare (EW) system adaptability, flexibility, and innovation has also increased. However the RF high power system amplifier has not evolved in any significant way since the inclusion of the microcontroller twenty years ago. That's a remarkable statement given the advancements seen in virtually every other application of electronic products and systems. Not only are innovative technologies needed, the EW systems engineer will benefit greatly from the new capabilities that a software defined, re-configurable, smart high power amplifier can provide.

One such capability is the breakthrough for pulse shaping where the HPA reproduces the pulse with extreme high fidelity and by doing so removes that task from the system integrator. Additional benefits include simplifying external hardware, lowering overall cost and improving SWaP.


Webinar Title:  Pulse Shaping in High Power Solid State Jamming Amplifiers

When:  Thursday, November 30, 12 pm to 1:30 pm

Location:  Marriott Marquis Hotel Marquis Ballroom, Meeting Level 2

Presenter:  Paulo Correa

Pulse shaping, as it is done today, is an effort to fix fidelity issues caused by the transmitting amplifier and is accomplished by a combination of imperfect methods, most external to the amplifier. In this technical session, Paulo Correa will describe a new high power amplifier architecture with built in real time feedback that is capable of matching the input signal shape, minimizing droop, overshoot, ringing, rise and fall times.

Real world examples and data will be shown from an amplifier simulating pulsed jamming scenarios to illustrate the performance problems and their sources within the HPA and why future amplifier performance issues will be resolved within the amplifier using real time digital correction. Finally, the workshop will illustrate the benefits of the proposed amplifier architecture including:

  • Real time optimization of the PA pulse characteristics
  • Reduce system engineering design time
  • Reduce overall size and weight of the jamming system
  • Reduced hardware to correct droop
  • Adaptive digital correction of the pulse in the event of variable VSWR

Speaker's Bio

Paulo Correa is Empower RF's CTO with 41 years of experience in RF and microwave with past roles including Director of Advanced Studies at Thales and CTO at Thomson Broadcast and Multimedia. With 13 patents to his name, Mr. Correa is also the architect of Empower's intelligent and flexible Next Generation series of amplifiers.

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 ...
