Features

The SPA is a 1U high, half rack width, broadband power amplifier which may be controlled by an S-Series SGA or SGD Signal Generator via a USB plug & play interface.  By accepting up to +20 dBm from an SGA/SGD, a gain of at least 10 dB will provide an output from the SPA of up to +30 dBm. A high quality, low-loss, switch may be enabled to by-pass the power amplifier when high RF levels are not required so that the excellent noise performance of the SGA or SGD is not compromised.

  • Up to 1 Watt from 10 MHz to 6 GHz
  • Seamless operation under the control of an S-Series signal generator
  • Amplifier bypass switch
  • AerolockTM interlocking mechanism for test system creation
  • Can be used stand-alone
