PAP-501 Com-Power Preamplifier
The PAP-501 is a 1 GHz Preamplifier from Com-Power. An amplifier is a type of electronic test equipment that amplifies radiofrequency (RF) and microwave signals using the antenna. Amplifiers are ideal when used for electromagnetic interference (EMI) testing, cell phones, microwaves, radio communications, and other such applications.

The Com-Power PAP-501 broadband high gain preamplifiers were designed for electromagnetic interference (EMI) testing and certification. EMC test labs use preamplifiers to improve sensitivity of the test system during EMI radiated emissions measurements. Without a high gain preamplifier, signals picked by the antenna that have amplitudes below the noise floor of the test system cannot be measured.
The preamplifier gain has minimum variations for the entire operating frequency range for accurate emissions measurements. The Com-Power preamplifiers were primarily intended for EMC applications. However, it can be used for other applications that require signal amplification.
