The TekBox TBMDA2/TBMDA3 Modulated Wideband Power Amplifiers are designed to create an inexpensive signal source for pre-compliance immunity testing of electronic PCBs and products. Driven by the tracking generator output of a spectrum analyzer, they provide the increased RF power outputs required by many test environments. With an input power range of up to -8 dBm /0 dBm, these amplifiers can boost the output power of a tracking generator up to 500 mW/5 W or 40 dB from 10MHz to beyond 1 GHz.
In addition to other applications, the TBMDAx amplifiers are candidates for driving TekBox near-field probes to detect problem areas of an electronic circuit or to create electric fields up to 550 V/m when driving TekBox TEMcells. Test signals for immunity testing can be CW or AM/PM modulated. These amplifiers include built-in modulation capabilities to generate 1 kHz AM or PM signals. In PM mode, the TBMDAx amplifiers can also generate a 217 Hz signal with 12.5% duty cycle in order to simulate mobile phone TDMA noise.
The TBMDA2 is powered by external 5 V and consuming around 3.5 W, and the TBMDA3 is powered by external 100-240 V and consumes 20 W.
