The amplifier consists of 10 interconnected modules. Each module is (as much as possible) independent of the others
up-stream and down-stream from it, so that modules can be swapped out and replaced as new (or other) options become available.
For example, we expect to offer both a basic 5 pole Butterworth output filter board, and a more complex and expensive diplexer
filter board - each builder can choose which to install.
The modules include:
/ Output board
- Input attenuator
- RF Splitter
- RF amplification modules
- Output combiner
- Microprocessor controller
- DC input board
- Cooling system
- Chassis and mechanical system
