The CBA 1G-150 amplifier covers frequency range from 100 kHz to 1 GHz with rated power of 150 watts. The amplifier is specially designed for radiated EMC testing where it provides continuous output in to the very poor match typically associated with broadband EMC antenna tested at lower frequency range. Most of the antennas typically have their lowest gain at the lowest frequency, amplifier requires to produce more power than at the higher frequencies. Unlike other amplifiers designed for general purpose applications, this EMC specific amplifier maximizes the linear power at the lowest frequency, therefore they can be used with various specialized applications.
