Empower launches 2kW L-band GaN-on-SiC solid-state amplifier for GPS denial

Empower RF Systems Inc of Inglewood, CA and Holbrook, NY, USA (which produces RF and microwave power amplifiers for defense, commercial and industrial applications) says that its new model 2226 is a compact high-power gallium nitide (GaN) L-band solid-state continuous-wave (CW) emitter, producing a minimum of 2kW across the entire 900-1600MHz band, designed for GPS denial based on the established and field-proven next-generation system architecture. This architecture is tactically deployed and operating on multiple levels in support of a variety of critical US Department of Defense (DOD) missions.

Equally suited for jamming, threat simulation, multipaction, HIRF (high-intensity radiated field) and automotive EMC applications, the 2226 comes complete with internal DDC (direct digital controller), external forward and reverse sample ports, and an easy-to-use web-served graphical user interface (GUI). In-depth health monitoring with alarms visible on the front panel are also pushed out the LAN port.  Output modes include manual gain control (MGC), automatic gain control (AGC) and automatic level control (ALC), which provide useful flexibility when integrating into various applications.

The 2226 is designed with the latest 50V GaN-on-SiC device technology, which lowers transistor count and reduces combining losses while increasing efficiency and reliability.

In addition to the standard array of user-configurable, multi-mission mode settings, the amplifier offers user-selectable ‘Graceful Output Power Degradation’, backing down power to a safe operating level in the event of component failure or excessive load VSWR (voltage standing wave ratio) condition.

Empower RF Systems is exhibiting in booth # 807 at the 56th Annual AOC International Symposium & Convention in Washington DC, USA (28-30 October).
