40S6G18B Datasheet
The Amplifier Research 40S6G18B Solid State CW Amplifier is a broadband amplifier that supplies 40 W of continuous wave power and operates over a frequency range of 6 GHz to 18 GHz. Amplifier Research 40S6G18B models are portable, air-cooled, self-contained and ideal for applications that call for high gain and an instantaneous bandwidth. In conjunction with a sweep generator, this amplifier will produce a minimum of 40 W of RF power instantaneously from 6 GHz to 18 GHz.

Amplifier Research 40S6G18B units are developed specifically to supply engineers with low spurious signals and linearity coupled with load tolerance. This allows engineers to conduct RF susceptibility, communication tech. testing and antenna and component testing. The 40S6G18B's versatile functionality is complemented by an LCD screen and digital control panel which provides both local and remote control of the amplifier.
