Empower RF Releases Model 1219 Solid State GaN Module with Mating Connector/Pigtail

Press Release Summary:

  • Utilizes a 50V GaN on SiC transistors with low leakage currents and high thermal conductivity
  • Features discrete and digital RS485 interfaces for controlling and monitoring of gain adjustment, temperature and alarm
  • Suitable for applications such as broadband mobile communications, jamming and product test applications

Original Press Release:

New 600-6000 MHz 30W GaN Module

Empower RF is pleased to announce the release of model 1219, a single band solid state GaN module delivering a minimum 30W (40w typical) across its entire .6 to 6 GHz band. Empower RF is the first amplifier manufacturer to cover this bandwidth with an affordable COTS product.

The 1219 utilizes 50V GaN on SiC transistors which have lower leakage currents and higher thermal conductivity and is a more reliable technology than GaN on Si. An added benefit, 50V devices require about half the input current as their 28V counterparts which reduces power supply cost, size, and weight.

This compact class AB amplifier is suitable for broadband mobile communications, jamming, and product test applications. Control and monitoring includes both discrete and digital RS485 interfaces for 

  • Gain Adjustment
  • Temperature Monitoring
  • Input Current Monitoring
  • Reset/PA Blanking
  • Alarm

The module comes with the mating connector/pigtail and optional Control Software is available to optimize module performance out of the box. Heat sink and fan assembly available.
