The CW10 magnetron is a development of the basic device, of a diode held in a powerful magnetic field to produce RF power. Here the anode cylinder is split into two segments, each connected to a top cap pin. This split anode arrangement enabled higher power to be produced. The real breakthrough was in the development of the cavity magnetron, where genuine high power was produced at microwave frequencies.
The wide glass tube envelope is 38 mm in diameter and, excluding the base pins, is 110 mm tall.
