Abstract : The project is intended to provide for production engineering to manufacture an amplifier with the following characteristics: 30 watts output power; input impedance, 50 ohms; output impedance, 50 ohms; frequency band, 600-1000 MHz. The amplifier will use the TRW MICroAMP broadband transistor which will be optimized as part of this project. Two of these devices will then be combined using 90 degree interdigitated couplers to produce a minimum of 30 watts of power. This amplifier will be adaptable for use as a building block for the fabrication of higher power systems. Fifteen preproduction amplifiers were built and partially tested. (Modified author abstract)
