The Model 567 is a dual mode Pulse/CW TWT Amplifier which has been designed to operate TWT’s in the 500 watt power range at frequencies up to 18 GHz. The RF output pulse is generated by the grid pulse without the use of RF switches. RF output pulse is controlled by the input 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.
The front panel 4-line vacuum florescent display, with multiple page modes, provides a monitor for the operating characteristics.
