App Note: AA-Series Field Generating Systems
Featured Product from AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation
Traditionally, generating low-level electric fields in the 18 – 40 GHz frequency band has been performed using traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTA’s). These TWTAs often produce much more power than is actually required to generate the required field strengths while also being an extremely costly solution. Why pay for unnecessary power? AR rf/microwave Instrumentation has the answer by introducing its AA-Series field generating systems. These systems can produce field strengths of up to 50 V/m in the 18 – 26.5 GHz and 26.5 – 40 GHz bands. An AA system is composed of a solidstate amplifier and antenna combined in a single housing, which can then be paired with a rackmountable power and RF routing unit.
