Avalon Test Equipment carries a wide variety of RF amplifiers to satisfy a frequency requirement of 6 GHz to 18 GHz for radiated immunity and susceptibility testing. Contact us with your specific requirements and Test With Confidence®. Models available for rent or purchase.
Normally, RF amplifiers within the frequency range of 6 GHz to 18 GHz would run utilizing traveling wave tube technology, but the solid state amplifiers are now available up to 18 GHz and 200 Watts max saturation output.
RF power amplifiers are used to simulate interactions between a device and electromagnetic fields it can encounter in real-life circumstances. These tests are done by boosting RF signals and demonstrate whether electromagnetic interference (EMI) will occur. To effectively simulate specific electromagnetic field conditions for EMC standards, RF power amplifiers need to amplify over a specific frequency range, power output, power efficiency, gain, and linearity. Most electronic devices, including cell phones and radios, can produce EMI and cause signal interference or damage to the device.
