TMD Technologies Shows Broadband Microwave Power Modules

June 8, 2022
The modules meet the needs of electronic countermeasure and communications data-link applications.

This article is part of our IMS2022 coverage.

In its IMS2022 Booth #3041, TMD Technologies, a division of Communications and Power Industries (CPI), will be showing a representative selection of its extensive range of microwave and RF products for defense, electronic warfare (EW), radar, and homeland security programs.

Two of the devices shown by TMD include a pair of microwave power modules (MPMs), its PTXM9754 and PTXM1000, both of which meet the demands of high-performance electronic countermeasure (ECM) and communication data-link systems. These devices feature an advanced, integrated "super-mini" traveling-wave tube (TWT); a solid-state preamplifier; and an optimized, high-density, switched-mode power supply to form a single drop-in microwave amplifier block—eliminating TWT interconnections and further reducing overall physical size. The PTXM9754 operates over a broadband 6-to-18-GHz range with an output of 100 W, and the PTXM1000 operates over the Ku band (13.75 to 14.5 GHz) typically with an output of 110 W. Both units meet stringent military environmental operating standards.
