Suite of Traveling Wave Tube Amplifiers at Boston International Microwave Symposium June 4-6 Features Wide Frequency Bandwidth for Reliability, High Duty Cycle to Support Multiple Platforms

Fremont, Calif. – May 29, 2019 – dB Control, an international defense electronics manufacturer, will exhibit four high-power, rack-mount, pulsed traveling wave tube amplifiers at the International Microwave Symposium (Boston, June 4-6) in Booth 1416. On average, these TWTAs offer the highest power available from dB Control and feature high duty cycles of operation. Overall, the suite of TWTAs covers a 4 to 18 GHz frequency range at various power levels (2,000 to 4,000 Watts) to ensure high-performance and reliability in a wide range of radar, electronic countermeasures and electronic warfare applications. The amplifiers incorporate military-grade TWTs and high-voltage power supplies to enable use in both defense or commercial applications.

  • dB-3778B: 4-8 GHz. C-band frequency range, 3700 Watts peak power at 6% maximum duty cycle. Ethernet interface.
  • dB-3779G: 8-12 GHz. X-band frequency range, 4000 Watts peak power at 8% maximum duty cycle. Ethernet interface.
  • dB-3799B: 8-18 GHz. I/J-band frequency range, 2000 Watts peak power at 5% maximum duty cycle. Ethernet interface.
  • dB-3813B: 12-18 GHz. Ku-band frequency range providing 3300 Watts peak power at 6% maximum duty cycle.

All four TWTAs feature standard 19-inch rack-mount configuration with integral forced-air cooling and very low phase noise. Custom interface protocols are available, such as Ethernet, RS-232, RS-422, RS-485 and others. More information about these TWTAs and other dB Control products will be available at IMS in Booth 1416.
