Amplifiers - RF / Operational / Log Video
(aka Analog | Opamp | Logarithmic | SDLNA | EDLVA)
Manufacturers & Services

Amplifiers cover a very broad range of types (Class A, B, C, D, AB, logarithmic, etc.), form factors, connectorized or non-connectorized, discrete or fully biased and impedance matched, low or high power, low or high frequency, low or high voltage supplied, narrow or wide bandwidth. Fortunately, within this page you are practically guaranteed to find a manufacturer that already makes or will custom design a solution for you. Please consider contacting RF Cafe advertisers first.

  Since 1992, Ophir RF has been designing and manufacturing RF/Microwave Amplifiers for Military, T&M, EMC and Scientific Research Applications.

  Products range 10 kHz to 40 GHz. Power levels 1 W to 25 kW. Ophir RF's specializes in replacing RADAR tube technology with solid state. Whether RF Amplifier Systems or Modules, Ophir RF is your RF Power Source.

Amplifier Systems
  Systems are complete. They plug into an outlet and are ready to go. Standard systems are 2U-5U chassis, w/or w/o remote connectivity.

Amplifier Modules
  Modules are usually smaller and part of systems. You supply your own DC voltage and make the I/O connections. Modules are available with or w/o heatsinks and fans.

Amplifier Subsystems
  Subsystems are integrated solutions for requirements that fall outside of the normal 19" rack chassis and standard module configurations. Driver module provides the PA with higher gain and output power.

Custom Systems
  If you have identified an amplifier system or an amplifier module from our standard product line that requires modification, submit details on the RFQ form.
