Our “gritted pulse / CW travelingwave tube” amplifiers are equipped with a separate TTL trigger input. The amplifier comprises a special modulator. This modulator is functioning at the cathode voltage making it possible to switch the tube on and off extremely fast. In the “off” period only extremely low noise is present. This system allows for duty cycles of 0 – 100 [%].
In the frequency range of 1 – 18 [GHz] the amplifiers are available with maximum output power of 0.1 – 2 [kW].
