The Model 500S1G6C is a solid-state, Class A design, self-contained, air-cooled, broadband power amplifier designed for applications requiring instantaneous bandwidth, high gain, and linearity. It will provide a minimum of 500 W across its operating bandwidth of 1.0 – 6.0 GHz. Protection from input overdrive beyond 0 dBm is provided and protection from various failure conditions, including over-temperature and power supply faults.
This is a multiple-purpose amplifier. The low level of spurious signals and linearity make it ideal for use as a driver in testing wireless and communication components and subsystems. By covering such a wide bandwidth, it is suitable for 5G testing applications. Due to the Class A design, it is also suitable for EMC Test applications where continued operation into high VSWR loads, including open and short circuits, is required.
