Amplifier Research 50S1G6

 AR-50S1G6 50Watt, CW 0.7-6GHz Microwave Amplifier


The  AR-50S1G6 is a solid-state, Class A design, self-contained, air-cooled,
broadband amplifier designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth,
high gain and linearity are required. The unit is designed for benchtop use,
but can be removed from the cabinet for immediate equipment rack mounting.

The  AR-50S1G6, when used with a sweep generator, will provide a minimum of 50
watts of RF power. Included is a front panel gain control which permits the
operator to conveniently set the desired output level. The  AR-50S1G6 is
protected from RF input overdrive by an RF input leveling circuit which
controls the RF input level to the RF amplifier first stage when the RF input
level is increased above 0 dBm. The RF amplifier stages are protected from
over-temperature by removing the DC voltage to them if an over-temperature
condition occurs due to cooling blockage or fan failure. There is a digital
display on the front panel to indicate the operate status and fault conditions
if an over-temperature or power supply fault has occurred. The unit can be
returned to operate when the condition has been cleared. 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 bus interface
connector is located on the back panel and positive control of local or remote
operation is assured by a Local/Remote switch on the front panel of the
amplifier.

The low level of spurious signals and linearity of the  AR-50S1G6 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 EAR99. 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.
