Rohde & Schwarz has expanded its R&S BBA150 broadband amplifier family to include the D series, which can be used for automotive and wireless communications testing. The new amplifiers cover the frequency range from 690 MHz to 3.2 GHz and power levels up to 800 W. The compact, lightweight, modular design can be scaled and configured to meet various needs. They can either be manually operated or automatically remotely controlled.
The D series has high power density, as well as high availability due to its mismatch tolerance and ability to handle both short-circuiting at the RF end and an open RF output. A single amplifier covers the frequency bands that as are necessary for automotive radar pulse tests with high field strength. The series also meets the requirements of the LTE, GSM700, UMTS and WLAN mobile communications standards.
