Solid State Amplifier - SCDX SeriesInstruments for Industry, SCDX-Series Solid-State Power Amplifiers provide outstanding RF performance. These RF Microwave Broadband Amplifiers (SSPA's) are available in a wide range of power levels, from 10 watts to 500 watts in the 10 kHz – 400 MHz frequency range. These state-of-the-art solid-state power amplifiers are specifically designed for laboratory and all testing applications.

IFI Broad-Band RF Microwave Power Amplifiers are very conservatively designed to operate below maximum ratings for ruggedness and long term reliability. Sixth generation LDMOS Transistors provide reliable brute-power performance at frequencies up to 400 MHz.

Our RF Power Amps. feature individually shielded solid-state aluminum assemblies for the module level. This concept of a shielded modular design minimizes internally produced EMI signal leakage and provides easy access for field service and rapid turnaround at depot level repair facilities. From the ground up, the “SCDX-SERIES” products are structurally engineered to withstand operation in mechanically hostile environments. Ruggedized versions are available for applications that will be exposed to very harsh environments.
