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.
