The Model 477Ka provides 700-1600W* peak power at duty cycles up to 8% from 33 to 36 GHz. Particular emphasis has been placed on the generation of the output RF pulse shape. The RF output pulse width tracks the input 5 volt video pulse.
The High Voltage Power Supplies are modular DC-DC converter designs. The Power supply design provides superior stability for optimum TWT phase noise and spurious performance.
All high voltage modules are plug-in assemblies packaged in an aluminum oil tank with transformer oil as the dielectric medium. Transformer drivers feature power MOSFET’s in a full wave bridge configuration. Imbedded processor provides control, monitor and interface functions, and multiple pages of monitored functions on the front panel 4-line vacuum fluorescent display.
