This experiment is an evaluation of the Neotron Amplifier Module. The manufacturers report Final Development Report for Feasibility Investigation of A Neotron in A Conduction - Cooled Sonar Amplifier Module gives a complete description and pictures of the amplifier module plus development procedures followed and manufacturers evaluation results. Five identical complete amplifier modules were furnished for our evaluation. A module test fixture with water-cooled cooling plate and interconnecting cables to the module was also furnished. There were two main reasons for this experiment. The first concerns the request from NAVSHIPS Code 00v1d to evaluate the amplifier modules and compare our results with those published by the manufacturer. The second concerns a part of the Sonar Amplifier Task assigned Code 601 which consists of evaluation of representative or interesting sonar amplifiers via specific voltage, current and phase measurements and then using this empirical data in a computer program determine Norton and Thevenin equivalent circuits for the amplifier.
