Crescend Technologies Announces its C5 Analog/Digital Power Amplifier
SCHAUMBURG, IL - Crescend Technologies recently announced the C5 power amplifier designed to work with the new digital RF technologies being developed by land mobile radio manufacturers.
“It is clear that the land mobile industry is rapidly developing and adopting digital technologies for their current and future radio system designs. As such, when our engineering design team was tasked to develop our advanced C5 amplifier it was a requirement that we have a digital version to work with recently announced TDMA and FDMA communications systems. Our engineers exceeded our expectations by designing the C5 to work with analog and digital with no changes to the amplifier. This means is that our customers are assured the same industry-leading quality, reliability and performance whether operating the C5 in analog or digital systems. In addition, as they migrate their current analog systems to digital systems Crescend amplifiers will transfer with them at no additional time or cost.” stated Crescend Technologies’ VP of engineering, Mark Obermann.
Jim Hougo, President of Crescend Technologies, echoed Mr. Obermann's comments; “For us to continue as the industry’s amplifier leader it is critical that we anticipate and keep pace with the various digital technologies. I'm pleased to say that Mark’s engineering team has done it again with the C5. This means that those customers who require high-powered base stations and repeaters in either analog or digital can use the C5 and be assured of Crescend's industry-leading quality in either mode. In addition, if they operate digital radio systems Crescend’s C5 is their high power solution whether they use TDMA or FDMA technology.”
