Ultra-Broadband RF Amplifier Rides in a 3U Chassis

April 30, 2021
This highly configurable RF amplifier in a 3U chassis serves equally well in laboratory bench testing or production-line test applications.

For general-purpose laboratory bench testing and production-line test applications, Empower RF's Model 2198 is a solid-state, tri-band amplifier in a single 3U chassis. With user-selectable modulation and power-output modes, this amplifier integrates easily into any integrated test-equipment system and simplifies test setups with selectable AGC and ALC modes. The amplifier is ready to go out of the box with its built-in browser GUI so there’s no software to install for PC or LAN control.

The Model 2198 amplifier performs well in semiconductor and other microwave component testing applications with either CW or pulsed waveforms. The ultra-wideband unit covers 20 MHz to 6000 MHz in a three-band compact configuration. RF is routed to the single-output connector via internal RF switching to the selected band. Band selection is performed using the front-panel LCD, peer- or LAN-connected PC via browser GUI (no software to install), or via SCPI ASCII commands over Ethernet or serial port.

The embedded firmware/software of these amplifiers result in a truly configurable amplifier with modes and features that include:

Selectable 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
