SOUDERTON, Pa. Amplifier Research's microwave amp, the 15T4G18 traveling wave tube (TWT), tests to the higher-frequency radiated RF requirements of the new GR-1089-Core Bellcore spec for telecom.
It has a frequency response from 4.2 to 18 GHz and offers a standard 15-W minimum output and a minimum of 10 W in a choice of three low-harmonic subbands. A digital front panel displays extensive system-status information that can be accessed, like the subbands, through a series of menus using soft keys, or remotely via the amp's built-in IEEE interface.
In an enclosure 19.8 inches long, 27 deep and 6.5 high, the amplifier is priced at $44,000 in single units.
