NEW YORK -- L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL) announced today that its Electron Devices (L-3 Electron Devices) division has received an order from the Northrop Grumman Corporation to supply the Wide Band Klystron Power Amplifier (WBKPA) for the E-3 Sentry's Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS).
By supporting the stable operation of klystron vacuum-tube amplifiers, the Tektronix RSA6114A Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer is contributing to the development of SPring-8 X-ray lasers.
Currently, the power supplies, modulators and klystrons are operating; the ion source and radiofrequency quadropole sections are producing at rated capacity (28 mA of beam current); the beam line is installed and vacuum tested; the drift tubes are installed; and the DTL tanks are in testing prior to 30 MeV operation.
New Sapphire Series of UltraLinear GaN based amplifiers can comprises over multiple transponders, full DVB-S2 enabled as well as preserve 8 to 15 dB power compared to indoor Klystrons or linearized TWTs.
As opposed to indoor Klystrons or linearized TWTs, with these new series of UltraLinear GaN based amplifiers our customers realize great savings in energy cost, CAPEX and OPEX.
SLAC's mechanical engineers will design vacuum chambers, klystrons, magnets, particle accelerators, beam diagnostic equipment and many other complex components of the new facility, called the Next Linear Collider.
For the operation of the solenoid magnets of the XFEL klystrons
Tenders are invited for supply of 60 klystron solenoid power supplys for the european xfel.
Conventional klystrons are used today in a variety of applications, such as in linear accelerators, television broadcasting and radar installations.
The new facility will test the E-3 klystrons used in the Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) radar.
