Since the early 1920’s, the source of microwave power generation has traditionally been vacuum tubes and magnetrons. Some high power RF applications today still rely on vacuum tube technology, even though there has been a multitude of advances in solid state RF power generation. This class will cover the technological advantages of solid state including dynamic range control, spectral purity, manufacturing economies of scale and product longevity.
