Solid State Power Amplifiers utilize solid state components to magnify the power of a small signal. This boosts the power of a signal for multipurpose use involving RF communications and compliance testing. Solid State Power Amplifiers, or SSPAs, are the most common amplifiers used for testing applications. Solid State Power Amplifiers are utilized for EMC testing in the communications, radar, aerospace, defense and medical technology fields. ATEC carries Solid State Power Amplifiers from the industry’s leading industry manufacturers, including Amplifier Research, Empower and Instruments for Industry (IFI). We carry both CW, or continuous wave, amplifiers and pulse amplifiers, which amplify a sine wave on a pulse with a limited duty cycle, but at higher power.
