Microwave Power Module Estimated to be 30 Percent More Efficient; Designed for Electronic Countermeasures, Electronic Warfare Simulation, Multi-band Communication Systems
Fremont, Calif. – dB Control, an international defense electronics manufacturer, today introduced a high-power pulsed microwave power module (MPM) featuring an AC prime power input. At 6 to 18 GHz and 200 Watts Pulsed/Continuous Wave, the dB-4128 provides double the output power of previous MPMs. It is estimated to be 30 percent more efficient than previous models due to its high-voltage power supply topology, highly efficient traveling wave tube and thermal design. Applications include electronic countermeasures (ECM), electronic warfare (EW) simulation and multi-band communication systems. The datasheet and high-resolution photo are available at dbcontrol.com/db4128.
“Although systems using DC prime power input are more common, many still require AC input. We designed the dB-4128 with an AC input because it enables more defense contractors and OEMs to use the product for a wide range of applications.” said dB Control VP of Business Development Steve Walley.
Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, dB Control continues to meet evolving size, weight and power (SWaP) requirements for reliable performance in extremely harsh environments. The company’s dB-4127 MPM introduced last year was the first of its kind to provide double the output power of comparable models on the market. dB Control also released a new pulse Ka-band TWT Amplifier last month. Specifications for that product are available at dbcontrol.com/db3861.
