The RF power amplifier range from Laplace is specifically designed for EMC Immunity testing. These are compact units with characteristics matched to the requirements of IEC standards.These RF amplifiers utilize fully isolated linear MOSFET or advanced GaAs FET devices, which provide high gain, wide dynamic range and excellent third order intercepts. High efficiency and reliable operation are achieved by employing unique RF combining circuits, RF microstrip networks, sophisticated thermal design, custom machined housing and heavy duty components. The high power RF amplifiers undergo extensive burn-in prior to final test and inspection.

The amplifiers all feature 50ohm input & output impedance, thermal and mismatch protection, standby switch and internal fan assisted cooling.

The standard range comprises:

Model
Frequemcy range
Linear Power (W)
Saturated Power (W)
RF0250 100KHz – 250MHz 15 25
RF1100 20MHz – 1GHz 10 24
RF1170 30MHz – 1GHz 30 70
RF1300 1GHz – 3GHz 6 8
RF1330 1GHz – 3GHz 24 30
RF1600 1GHz – 6GHz 10 15

A wide range of other power amplifiers with ratings from 1W to 20KW, and 10KHz to 40GHz is also available.
