IFI ME-Series Solid State RF Microwave Power Amplifiers 10kHz – 250 MHz
Instruments for Industry, ME-series Solid State RF Microwave Broadband Amplifiers provide outstanding RF performance. Our “ME-Series” products are state-of-the-art solid-state power amplifiers specifically designed for laboratory and all testing applications. These products are available in a wide range of power levels from 10 watts to 200 watts in the 10 kHz – 250 MHz frequency range.
IFI RF amplifiers are very conservatively designed to operate below maximum ratings for ruggedness and long term reliability. Sixth generation LDMOS Transistors provide reliable brute-power performance at frequencies up to 250 MHz.
Our RF power amplifiers feature individually shielded assemblies for the module level. This concept of shielded modular design minimizes internally produced EMI signal leakage and provides easy access for field service and rapid turnaround at depot level repair facilities.
From the ground up, the “ME-SERIES” products are structurally engineered to withstand operation in mechanically hostile environments. Ruggedized versions are available for applications that will be exposed to very harsh environments.
