Empower RF Systems is
conducting remote live demonstrations of our broadband, high power 1 kW 1 to 3 GHz
amplifier, Booth 321.
July 31, 2017
The amplifier will be housed in Los Angeles and viewed
in the IEEE EMC exhibit venue with live streaming video while remotely controlling the amplifier
from the exhibit floor through a standard web browser. What you will see is a demonstration
of remote operation of the Empower 2170 1 kW RF amplifier in a test setup that includes
a signal generator, spectrum analyzer, external power meter, and load, simulating various
test and modulation scenarios.
"Empower is bringing the element of portability to high power RF amplifiers with small
size that allows these amplifiers to be conveniently shipped for offsite testing and moved
around as needed within your test environment."
In addition to industry leading size / weight / power performance, the demonstration team
is eager to talk about industry first capabilities that will change the way you test.
Simplify Your Testing. Why?
Speeding up your Radiated Immunity sweeps while using fewer external instruments with our
ALC mode will save you money. You simply communicate a command to the amplifier for the desired
output power required - never mind adjusting for the roller coaster output vs. frequency curves
of old technology amplifiers. Here’s how it works: set the sig gen frequency with power level
±3 dBm and leave it, tell amp the power out you want, read field probe V/m, calculate,
tell the amp the power you want. Repeat. By instructing the amplifier to maintain a specific
power level, the desired E field can be reached with an order of magnitude fewer incremental
power steps. Be sure to stop by the booth to get more specifics on accomplishing shortened
Scalability. What is it?
We developed this industry first scalable architecture as way to supply a large variety
of output power levels to many different customers and application, but with only one fundamental
design effort from our engineering group. The benefit to you is reducing your lifetime capital
spend on amplifiers since you buy only the power you need today and add power amplifier blocks
later when your test or application requires more output power. Adding 3U power amplifier
blocks is accomplished easily and simply with no factory return or special handling for phase
