Test Equipment Description

The Amplifier Research 150A100C amplifier is a selfcontained, broadband unit designed for laboratory applications where instantaneous bandwidth, high gain and moderate power output are required. Utilization of push-pull MOSFET circuitry lowers distortion, improves stability and allows operation into any load impedance without damage. The Model 150A100C, when used with an RF sweep generator, will provide a minimum of 150 watts of swept power.

There is a digital display on the front panel to indicate the operate status and fault conditions when an over temperature, power supply, or amplifier fault has occurred. The unit can be returned to operate when the condition has been cleared. The 150A100C includes digital control for both local and remote control of the amplifier. This 8-bit RISC microprocessor controlled board provides both IEEE-488 (GPIB) and asynchronous, full duplex RS-232 control of all amplifier functions.

Housed in a stylish, contemporary enclosure, the Model 150A100C provides readily available RF power for typical applications such as RF susceptibility testing, antenna and component testing, watt meter calibration, and use as a driver for higher power amplifiers.

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.
