A pulse amplifier, or pulsed amplifier, is designed to amplify RF pulses generated by an electrical device without altering its waveform. Pulse amplifiers strengthen signals to high levels of power with their unique power output method, which alternates between intensely pulsating power and producing no output at all at a rapid rate. As they do not continuously produce energy, pulse amplifiers stay cool. Desirable qualities of a pulse amplifier include a phase linearity without resonances or sharp variations and a wide band and flat frequency response.
Technicians seek out pulse amplifiers for applications requiring a high frequency bandwidth, reliability, in situations which might cause an amplifier to overheat, and for military applications in which a non-continuous wave is advantageous for stealth. Pulse amplifiers eliminate trace signals in the output. In defense applications like the maintenance of radar systems, eliminating such traces is essential. Rent a variety of pulse amplifiers with frequency ranges up to 26 GHz.
