Critical technologies and capabilities required for this application
With today’s increasingly fast-paced demand for wireless technology and the recent expansion of the wireless market into 4G/LTE/WiMAX,
available airspace is shrinking. This narrowing of frequency band distribution is forcing regulatory commissions, like the
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the United States, to demand increasingly sophisticated Electromagnetic Compatibility
(EMC)/Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) design standards. Simultaneously, the users and their devices generate and receive these
signals in ever increasing numbers. This prevalence of RF devices drives increased requirements for military, industrial, scientific,
personal and wireless communications susceptibility and immunity testing.
How Empower is positioned to support these applications
Empower RF Systems, Inc is a global leader in radio frequency amplifiers. Empower designs 10 KHz to 6 GHz power amplifiers with
output power from 10 Watts to multiple kWatts customized to customer requirements. Empower provides broadband and general communication
amplifiers that match commonly used frequencies. With our available touch screen LCD and Ethernet interface option, remote
operation is made simple. Empower offers the latest in Class A and AB amplifiers that provide infinite load VSWR protection with low
distortion signals. This broad range of capable amplifiers is ideal for EMC/EMI and ISM susceptibility applications. Empower’s ability
to customize options, transmit clean signals with low harmonics and cater to the application of the end-user, provides the flexibility
needed to thoroughly test equipment.
Empower RF Systems has extensive experience with Multi-Function, Highly-Integrated Assemblies.
Customer-specific requirements are met by incorporating Integrated Filters,
T/R switches, DC/DC Converters, Forward/Reverse Power detectors and RCV LNAs into the Amplifier.
Key Design Wins Capability Showcase
BBS3G6QHM (SKU 2135)
This amplifier is suitable for ultra broadband high power linear applications, RFI/EMC susceptibility testing and other laboratory
uses. Excellent linearity is maintained by using LDMOS power devices for 20-1000 MHz operation and GaAsFET devices for higher end frequency responses.
The system includes a universal voltage, single phase power supply and a built-in forced air cooling system. Also available with LCD touchscreen
and Ethernet controller options.
BBS3G6QNQ (SKU 2153)
This amplifier utilizes GaN power devices and is suitable for communications, countercommunications, RFI/EMC susceptibility testing and other
applications requiring broadband linear high-power. The system includes a universal voltage, single phase power supply and a built-in forced air cooling
system. Also available with LCD touchscreen and Ethernet controller options.
