Empower RF Systems Model 2176 is a Compact Solid State GaN On SiC Amplifier
Producing a Minimum 4 kW CW and 2 kW RMS at 3.6 PAR from 1750 to 2120 MHz.
January 30, 2020 - Empower's model
2176 is a compact high power GaN on SiC solid state CW amplifier.
Standing 27 inches tall, it's less than half the size of the typical legacy uplink
HPA's that it replaces. The slightly broader band brings flexibility to transmit
in either of the two uplink channels. Besides the dramatic size reduction, the upgrade
from legacy design to a next generation
SSPA from Empower RF brings greater reliability and improved
spectral purity for increased data rates.
The 2176 is based on Empower's established and field proven Next Generation architecture
that is tactically deployed and operating on multiple levels in support of a variety
of critical DOD missions.
The 2176 comes complete with internal directional coupler, external forward and
reverse sample ports, and an easy to use web GUI. In depth health monitoring with
alarms visible on the front panel are also pushed out via the LAN port. Output modes
include Manual Gain Control (MGC), AGC and ALC which provide flexibility when integrating
into legacy uplink systems. For critical "on air" applications, the 2176 provides
"Graceful Output Power Degradation", backing down power to a safe operating level
in the event of component failure or excessive Load VSWR condition.
