IFI SMX100 Wideband Amplifier with PS


The IFI (Instruments for Industry) SMX100 Amplifier provides outstanding RF performance, with a frequency range of 10 kHz to 1 GHz, and 100 watts of power. It is 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 1000 MHz.

The SMX100 features individually shielded aluminum assemblies at the module level. This concept of a shielded modular design minimizes internally produced EMI signal leakage and provides easy access for field service and rapid turnaround at depot level repair facilities.

Standard features of the IFI SMX100 include:

VSWR Reflected Power Protection, the unit operates without damage or oscillation into any magnitude of phase or load impedance, Open and Short Circuit Protection.

GPIB IEEE 488 and RS232 Remote Control

RF Sample Port on the Front Panel, 112R for rear panel

Internal Pre-amplification to obtain rated output power with an input level of 0 dBm or less.
