The R&S®BBA300 family – a new solid-state broadband amplifier generation with greater robustness and availability

Flexible, configurable as single, dual or multiband amplifier system

The R&S®BBA300 broadband amplifiers are a new generation of highly compact solid-state broadband
amplifiers designed for high availability. They feature extremely wide, continuous frequency bands
extending up into the high microwave range, along with high linearity, outstanding noise power density and
excellent harmonic characteristics. They also boast high system configuration and operational settings flexibility.

The R&S®BBA300 is ideal for critical test environments such as EMC, product validation and OTA coexistence tests in the frequency range from 380 MHz to 6 GHz and an RF output power of up to 300 W P1dB.

Features & benefits

Excellent RF performance

The products in the R&S®BBA300 family include the R&S®BBA300-CDE and R&S®BBA300-DE amplifier series with broadband amplification in the frequency ranges from 380 MHz to 6 GHz (R&S®BBA300-CDE) and 1 GHz to 6 GHz (R&S®BBA300-DE) with output power of up to 300 W. They cover frequencies in the GSM, LTE, 5G and GPRS mobile communications standards as well as the WLAN, Bluetooth® and Zigbee radio standards. The amplifiers support continuous sweeping of RF signals across the entire frequency range. This unique feature speeds up EMC testing, RF component and device testing and validation for wireless communications manufacturers. Narrowband CW signals (signals with simple AM, FM, PM or φM modulation and broadband, complex OFDM signals) can be amplified. High linearity, outstanding noise power density as low as –110 dBm/Hz and harmonic characteristics of –25 dBc and ensure a low adjacent channel leakage ratio (ACLR) as well as excellent transfer characteristics without additional EVM.

High availability - robust operation

The innovative R&S®BBA300 family features high availability and robust operations. Its sophisticated RF design ensures reliable, continuous operation even with mismatched loads on the RF output or shorted or open RF output. EMC labs appreciate the high mismatch tolerance of Rohde & Schwarz broadband amplifiers, which can provide full RF power at the output even with mismatches of up to VSWR 6:1. Minimizing downtime vital to users. Rohde & Schwarz amplifiers offer high availability, stability and reliability with innovative, smart protection concepts. Functions such as periodic bias current adjustment to compensate for component aging and drift increase the lifetime of broadband amplifiers. Customized service packages increase the high system availability of R&S®BBA300 amplifiers.

Flexible, configurable

R&S®BBA300 broadband amplifiers are designed for maximum flexibility in minimum space. The compact and modular design of the amplifiers and other components enables scalable, highly integrated rack systems with 19" plug-in units. The frequency range and power of the amplifiers can be flexibly configured and subsequently extended at any time, securing the user investment. Switch options enable individual amplifiers to be combined for specific applications and multiple frequency bands can be grouped into a system.

Smart control

A new software platform ensures role-based, modern, user-friendly operation. The GUI allows operation point adjustments during use for improved efficiency. Dedicated access is available to extensive parameter sets. Option keys enable additional functions such as frequency range extension, high power mode, adjustment of operation point or other.  The standard Ethernet interface automates test procedures with remote control commands that use SCPI nomenclature. 
Optionally, the SNMP protocol can be enabled for remote control.
