Gain Shape amplifiers are used in a number of applications where it's necessary to flatten the gain characteristic of the preceding or following component. This would include flattening the attenuation of a long cable run or perhaps changing the input gain response to a MPM (Microwave Power Module) or TWT (Traveling Wave Tube) to compensate for the gain variation within the tube.

One unique service Teledyne Microwave Solutions (TMS) offers is the ability to individually match a gain characteristic to a given tube's performance. This is done using Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) to calculate the gain needed at any particular frequency in order to maintain an overall flatness across the whole operating band. This is done without the need for the tube to be provided to TMS; all we need is the gain characteristics of the individual tube.
Many gain shapes are available to compensate for many different interactions with gain.
