Solid State Amplifier - SMX SeriesInstruments for Industry, SMX-series Amplifiers provide outstanding RF performance. These products are available in a wide range of power levels from 10 watts to 1000 watts in the 10 kHz – 1000 MHz frequency range. These state-of-the-art solid-state power amplifiers are specifically designed for laboratory and all testing applications.

IFI RF amplifiers are very conservatively designed to operate below maximum ratings for ruggedness and long term reliability. Sixth generation LDMOS Transistors provide reliable brute-power performance at frequencies up to 1000 MHz.

Our RF power amplifiers feature individually shielded aluminum assemblies for the module level. This concept of a shielded modular design minimizes internally produced EMI signal leakage and provides easy access for field service and rapid turnaround at depot level repair facilities.

From the ground up, the “SMX-SERIES” products are structurally engineered to withstand operation in mechanically hostile environments. Ruggedized versions are available for applications that will be exposed to very harsh environments.
