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.

Empower RF Systems Intros 4 kW S-Band SSPA for Satcom Uplink - RF CafeJanuary 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.

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 ...
