Amplifier Research 40S6G18A

 AR-40S6G18A 40Watt, CW 6-18GHz Microwave Amplifier

The  AR-40S6G18A is a portable, self-contained, air-cooled, broadband,
completely solid-state amplifier designed for applications where instantaneous
bandwidth, high gain and linearity are required. The  AR-40S6G18A, when used
with a sweep generator, will provide a minimum of 40 watts of RF power
instantaneously from 6 to 18 GHz.

The  AR-40S6G18A is equipped with a Digital Control Panel (DCP) which provides
both local and remote control of the amplifier. The DCP uses a graphic Liquid
Crystal Display, menu assigned softkeys, a single rotary knob, and a dedicated
power on/off switch to offer extensive control and status reporting
capability. The display provides gain setting and reports of internal
amplifier status. Special features include a gain control and input overdrive
protection.

All amplifier control functions and status indications are available remotely
in GPIB/IEEE-488 format, RS-232 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  AR-40S6G18A is designed to have low spurious signals, linearity and is
extremely load tolerant which enables it to be used in many RF applications
such as: RF susceptibility testing, antenna/component testing, and
communication technology testing. 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, UWB, WiMAX etc.
