  This paper concerns the R&D work upon design of a compact RF amplifier to be used for superconducting CW cavities. The machine under development will operate at 176 MHz with output power of 25 kW in continuous wave regime. It consists of 50 push-pull PCB modules (approx. 500W output power each), connected in parallel to several radial filter rings, which both allow class-F operation and combine the power from the modules, delivering it to a single 50 Ω coax cable. The CST simulations ad the design of 324 MHz test prototype are presented.
