Amplifier Research 175S1G4A

 AR-175S1G4A 175Watt, CW 0.7-4.2GHz Microwave Amplifier

The  AR-175S1G4A is a portable, selfcontained, air-cooled, broadband,
completely solid-state amplifier designed for applications where instantaneous
bandwidth, high gain and linearity are required. Push-pull circuitry is
utilized in all high power stages in the interest of lowering distortion and
improving stability. The  AR-175S1G4A, when used with a sweep generator, will
provide a minimum of 175 watts of RF power.

The  AR-175S1G4A is equipped with a Digital Control Panel (DCP) which provides
both local and remote control
of the amplifier. The DCP uses a color LCD touch screen and a single rotary
knob to offer status reporting and
control capability. The display provides Forward Power and Reflected Power
values plus amplifier status. Special features include a gain control,
internal automatic level control (ALC) with front panel control at the ALC
threshold,
and RF output level protection.

All amplifier control functions and status indications are available remotely
in GPIB/IEEE-488 format, RS232 hardwire and fiber optic, USB and Ethernet. The
buss interface connector is located on the back panel and positive control of
local or remote operation is assured by a keylock on the front panel of the
amplifier

The low level of spurious signals and linearity of the  AR-175S1G4A make it
ideal for use as a driver amplifier in testing wireless and communication
components and subsystems. It can be used as a test instrument covering
multiple frequency bands and is suitable for a variety of communication
technologies such as CDMA, W-CDMA, TDMA, GSM etc. It is also suitable for EMC
Test applications where undistorted modulation envelopes are desired.

The export classification for this equipment is 3A001. These commodities,
technology or software are controlled for export in accordance with the U.S.
Export Administration Regulations. Diversion contrary to U.S. law is
prohibited.
