Chief Technical Officer
May 15, 2017 - Empower RF Systems is conducting remote live demonstrations of our broadband, high
power 1 kW, 1 to 3 GHz amplifier, Booth 1007.
The amplifier will be housed in Los Angeles and viewed in the Hawaii
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 will be
exercising the system software that makes this a truly configurable amplifier with modes and features
Selectable User Output Power Control
- Automatic Gain Control (AGC)
- Automatic Level Control (ALC)
- Manual Gain Control (MGC)
Selectable Operating Modes
- CW, FM, AM, CE
- Digital Modulation
- Multi-carrier / Multitone
- Pulse Modulation
- Gated Pulse
Built in Peak Detectors
- Input and Output Detectors
- Selectable Peak and RMS
This array of operational and power detection modes provides maximum flexibility and in our increasingly
complex digital waveform environment. This is a power amplifier system that is designed and built
around a flexible and future proof architecture.

If you will be attending IMS 2017, we invite you to come see us at Booth 1007. We would be pleased
to spend time with you discussing your test or operating scenarios, talking about our Company, and comparing
notes on your application. If you are not able to join us at the show, please allow us to schedule a
visit for you to our HQ facilities (10 minutes from LAX) or make arrangements for a "virtual tour" via
web meeting to show you these products in operation.
