RFHIC’s RIK2520K-40T is a 20 kW, GaN solid-state microwave generator which operates from 2400~2500 MHz. It has a system efficiency of 55% and is capable of both CW and pulsed operations. The microwave generator is equipped with sixteen 1.6kW GaN solid-state power amplifiers (SSPAs), two in each of the four shelves. The RIK2520K-40T is implemented with a digital phase lock loop (PLL) synthesizer to generate and stabilize the desired signal frequency automatically. Unlike traditional vacuum tubes (magnetrons, klystrons, and TWTAs), this device provides precise signal controllability and far less spurious emissions.
The system is equipped with a power supply unit (PSU) and is packaged in a standard 19″ rack-mountable shelf. The RIK2520K-40T uses a WR430 waveguide combiner and requires water cooling. Custom designs are available upon request.
Lead-free and RoHS compliant.
