ETL Systems, a global designer and manufacturer of Radio Frequency (RF) distribution equipment for satellite communications, today announced the launch of a new range of RF power amplifiers for military use.
The range is designed for electronic warfare applications such as broadband frequency jamming or EMC testing. These can be on mobile or fixed terminals and used in terrestrial point to point and point to multipoint. It offers a broad range of operating frequencies, including 20-500 MHz, 500-2700 MHz and 2500-6000 MHz.
“Because the reliability and performance rating of our equipment is so good, the vast majority of main NATO governments use ETL equipment to help protect their citizens,” said Andrew Bond, Sales Director at ETL Systems. “We are therefore delighted to announce this new range of RF power amplifiers – designed by our dedicated team of amplifier specialists and our core design team of 30 experienced engineers – which adds to our huge range of RF equipment.”
The design of the amplifiers is based on advanced Gallium Nitride (GaN) high electron mobility transistor (HEMT) technology for high efficiency, good thermal conductivity, high breakdown voltages and low energy consumption.
The modules benefit from high efficiency and gain, with 20, 35, 40, 60, or 100W saturated power options. Each amplifier module is integrated into a compact housing, designed for easy integration, to a broad range of transmit antennas, filters and multiplexers. The high power RF amplifier products are available as standalone components or mounted in a 2U high 19" rack chassis, which offers dual redundant hot-swap power supplies, local and remote control and monitoring.
