Solid State Amplifiers - SXXL EW/ECM SeriesInstruments for Industry is a supplier of state-of-the-art solid-state RF power amplifiers. Our SXXL-Series products are specifically designed for EW Jamming applications. These products are available in a wide range of power levels from 10 watts to kilowatts in multiple frequency ranges from 1.0MHz – 6.0GHz. (See other model data sheets for other frequency ranges.)

IFI RF amplifiers are very conservatively designed to operate below maximum ratings for ruggedness and long term reliability. Sixth generation high voltage LDMOS Transistors provide reliable brute-power performance at frequencies up to 1000MHz. Gallium Nitride technology is utilized in our broadband products for applications up to 6.0GHz.

Our RF power amplifiers feature heavy-duty individually shielded aluminum housings at the module level. This concept of shielded modular design minimizes internally produced EMI signal leakage and provides easy access for field service and rapid turnaround at depot level repair facilities.

Our extremely fast gate bias controls at all of the amplifier modules permit a fast access noise quieting function in less than 1 microsecond. Optional PIN diode T/R switches provide complete EW solutions with very low receiver path losses typically in the range of 1.5dB.

IFI system level products include an easy to read backlit LCD screen display for immediate indication of forward/reverse RF power, system status and self-diagnostic information. The systems also provide interface capabilities for control and status by, Ethernet, RS-232 (or RS-422 or RS-485) and IEEE interface formats.

From the ground up the SXXL-Series are structurally engineered to withstand operation in mechanically hostile environments withstanding the shock and vibration of military vehicles and portable shelters. Ruggedized versions are available for airborne and shipboard applications.
