Rohde & Schwarz (Munich, Germany) has expanded its R&S BBA150 broadband amplifier family with the D series to cover the frequency range from 690 MHz to 3.2 GHz and power levels up to 800 W. Both frequency bands, from 1.2 GHz to 1.4 GHz and 2.7 GHz to 3.2 GHz, as are necessary for automotive radar pulse tests with high field strength, are integrated in only one amplifier. With a frequency range starting at 690 MHz, the amplifiers meet the requirements of the LTE, GSM700, UMTS and WLAN mobile communications standards. The high power levels are required for compliance tests in EMC labs. To learn more, click here.
