The new AR 1000S1G2z5 solid state amplifier provides 1000 watts of CW output power from 1 to 2.5GHz, ideally complementing their previous 100, 250, and 500 watts models. This new amplifier has all the features of those previous models and fits neatly into a 24 U enclosure. The low level of spurious signals and linearity of the Model 1000S1G2z5 make it ideal for use as a driver amplifier in testing wireless and communication components and subsystems. It is also ideal for EMC Test applications where undistorted modulation envelopes are desired and as a TWTA replacement. Look for more details in the soon to be released AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation catalog which should be available early March 2013.

Known for decades as innovators in instrumentation amplifiers, AR RF & Microwave Instrumentation first introduced its “S” Series of amplifiers for customers needing highly linear broad band performance in the microwave spectrum. Until this design appeared on the market, customers were limited to the performance available only in “TWT” type amplifiers. Today AR RF & Microwave Instrumentation has delivered thousands of solid state microwave amplifiers and continues to launch new and innovative solid state products in these frequencies.

Millitech Inc. (Northampton MA) is pleased to announce the delivery of their new 18-40GHz Gaussian Optic Antenna.
These Gaussian Optic Antennas (GOAs) provide superior efficiency due to low blockage and low-loss optics. The dual-polarization versions have excellent cross-polarization isolation using a grid polarizer and two linear polarized feeds. Typically, 40 dB of cross-polarization isolation is maintained over the frequency band. The interface is standard 2.92mm coaxial connectors. Efficiency ranges from 30-50% over the band for both dual-pol and single-pol versions.
