The perfect combination of high performance, wide bandwidth and low noise

The R&S®SAM100 system amplifier is an ultra-broadband solid state microwave amplifier with a frequency range from 2 GHz to 20 GHz. With a power of up to 20 W, outstanding linearity and very good noise characteristics, the R&S®SAM100 amplifier is ideal as a compact system amplifier in various measurement setups e.g. design (DVT) and product validation test (PVT) or EMC. In measurement environments with R&S generators, frequency analyzers or network analyzers, they can act as drivers or boosters and amplify the measurement signals. The R&S®SAM100 is also an excellent alternative to tube amplifiers as well as for multi-band assemblies consisting of narrow-band single amplifiers.

Features & benefits

Broadband amplification

Robust state-of-the-art solid-state technology for low-noise amplification

Ultra-Light and very compact 20 W microwave amplifier with the highest power density and a very low noise power density of << –100 dBm (1 Hz) at a bandwidth of one decade from 2 GHz – 20 GHz realized with the latest GaN-HEMT technology and a sophisticated thermal design using the heat pipe technology offers the user the possibility to amplify test signals for the design, testing and validation of RF components and devices.

Compact and modular

Flexible in use

With their modular, compact design, the R&S®SAM100 amplifiers can be used excellently in 19” system racks and PXI frames. They are also available as mobile desktop devices. In particular, their digital control interface predestines these amplifiers for integration into automatic test systems (ATE Systems). Its patented plug-in system for the microwave input and output plugs allows a choice between 2.92 mm or 3.5 mm plugs.
