Abstract:

The project is intended to provide for production engineering to manufacture an amplifier with the following characteristics 30 watts output power input impedance, 50 ohms output impedance, 50 ohms frequency band, 600-1000 MHz. The amplifier will utilize the TRW MICroAMPTM broadband transistor which will be optimized as part of this project. Two of these devices will then be combined using 90 degree interdigitated couplers to produce a minimum of 30 watts of power. This amplifier will be adaptable for use as a building block for the fabrication of higher power systems. The mask set was redesigned to incorporate the changes necessary for increased amplifier gain. Three engineering sample amplifiers were fabricated, tested, and shipped. Approval to start the First Article Amplifiers was obtained and these amplifiers were started.
