Product Overview

AMPLIFIER RESEARCH 50S1G4

The Amplifier Research 50S1G4 Amplifier is a solid state, self-contained, air-cooled, broadband amplifier designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth, high gain and linearity are required. Housed in a stylish contemporary cabinet, the unit is designed for benchtop use, but can be removed from the cabinet for immediate equipment rack mounting.

The AR 50S1G4 Amplifier, when used with a sweep generator, will provide a minimum of 50 watts of RF power. Included is a front panel gain control which permits the operator to conveniently set the desired output level. The 50S1G4 is protected from RF input overdrive by an RF input leveling circuit which controls the RF input level to the RF amplifier first stage when the RF input level is increased above 0 dBm. The RF amplifier stages are protected from over-temperature by removing the DC voltage to them if an over-temperature condition occurs due to cooling blockage or fan failure. There is a digital display on the front panel to indicate the operate status and fault conditions if an over-temperature or power supply fault has occurred. The unit can be returned to operate when the condition has been cleared. The 50S1G4 digital panel provides control of all amplifier functions both locally and remotely via IEEE-488 (GPIB) or RS-232 interfaces.

The low level of spurious signals and linearity of the Amplifier Research 50S1G4 make it ideal for use as a driver amplifier in testing wireless and communication components and subsystems. It can be used as a test instrument covering multiple frequency bands and is suitable for a variety of communication technologies such as CDMA, W-CDMA, TDMA, GSM etc. It is also suitable for EMC Test applications where undistorted modulation envelopes are desired.
 
Specifications of the Amplifier Research 50S1G4 include:
 
RATED POWER OUTPUT................................................50 watts minimum
INPUT FOR RATED OUTPUT ..........................................1.0 milliwatt maximum
POWER OUTPUT @ 3dB COMPRESSSION
Nominal ................................................................70 watts
Minimum ...............................................................50 watts
POWER OUTPUT @ 1dB COMPRESSION
Nominal ................................................................60 watts
Minimum ...............................................................40 watts
FLATNESS .....................................................................±1.5 dB typical
±2.0 dB maximum
FREQUENCY RESPONSE ...............................................0.8–4.2 GHz instantaneously
GAIN (at maximum setting) ...........................................47 dB minimum
GAIN ADJUSTMENT
(Continuous Range)................................................10 dB minimum
(4096 steps remote)
INPUT IMPEDANCE.......................................................50 ohms, VSWR 2.0:1 maximum
OUTPUT IMPEDANCE ...................................................50 ohms, nominal
MISMATCH TOLERANCE*..............................................100% of rated power without foldback. Will operate without damage or
oscillation with any magnitude and phase of source and load
impedance. *See Application Note #27.
MODULATION CAPABILITY ...........................................Will faithfully reproduce AM, FM, or pulse Modulation appearing on
the input signal
THIRD ORDER INTERCEPT .............................................The third order intercept points for this chart have been
determined using two tones spaced 1 MHz apart. This is typical for WCDMA
systems. Closer tone spacing such as 60 kHz generally provides
about a 1db to 3db improvement in the IP.
