TWT amplifiers use vacuum tube technology to amplify RF and microwave signals in order to strengthen a weak signal or simulate a signal’s effect on a device. Traveling wave tube (TWT) amplifiers, also called TWTAs, are known for their reliability and long lifetimes, as well as their capacity for generating a higher power output within wider frequency ranges. Technicians rent TWTAs for broadband applications like radar, satellite communications and broadcasting. Our inventory is composed of products from leading manufacturers like Amplifier Research, Instruments for Industry (IFI) and Agilent. TWT amplifiers are available as continuous wave (CW) amplifiers, which produce power continuously, or pulse amplifiers, which output intense pulses of energy for signal amplification.
