FREMONT, Calif. - dB Control Corp. in Fremont, Calif., is introducing the dB-3774B pulsed microwave power module (MPM) for radar, electronic countermeasures (ECM), and data links in military manned and unmanned aircraft, and ground-based applications.

The power modules operates in the 6 to 18 GHz frequency range and provides 1 kilowatt peak power at 5 percent maximum duty cycle.

A periodic permanent magnet (PPM)-focused, conduction-cooled mini traveling wave tube (TWT) powers amplification, and a solid state driver amplifier provides RF and microwave gain.

The high-voltage power supply (HVPS) section uses modular architecture and low-noise power supply topology, using solid state power conversion circuits.

A stable solid state modulator pulses the TWT grid. The conduction-cooled dB-3774B MPM operates with 270-volt DC prime power. The device measures 7 by 3 by 18 inches, ad weighs 18 pounds. It operates i temperatures from -40 to 70 degrees Celsius, to altitudes as high as 50,000 feet.
