For years, when discussing high field-strength electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) radiated susceptibility testing, Traveling Wave Tube Amplifier (TWTA) technology has been the only available option for pulsed field generation. Now, there is a very attractive alternative to this technology. AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation is now offering high-power Solid State pulsed amplifiers. These SP-series amplifiers include various frequency ranges and output power levels to meet several standards. Additionally, designs can be tailored to suit your specific application. This application note will discuss some of the key features and benefits of AR’s new line of Solid State pulsed amplifiers.
