Advantech Wireless receives new orders for GaN-based 250W Ku-band SSPAs

Advantech Wireless Inc of Montreal, Canada (which manufactures satellite, RF equipment and microwave systems) has received new orders in excess of US$1m for its second-generation gallium nitride (GaN)-based 250W Ku-band solid-state power amplifier (SSPA).

Designed specifically for size- and weight-limited applications, with very low energy consumption and high reliability, the new generation of GaN-based SSPAs is suitable for the broadcast industry, as well as emergency response government services.

"Satellite news broadcasting, emergency communication recovery and military satcom trailers require as much RF power as possible in a small, highly energy-efficient footprint. These amplifiers must also be highly reliable and designed to operate in very harsh environments," notes VP business development Cristi Damian. "The second-generation 250W Ku-band GaN-based SSPA is designed to meet these requirements, replace legacy older-generation TWTs [traveling-wave tube amplifiers] and SSPAs, while supporting the extremely high linearity required for complex waveforms such as DVB-S2X and Ultra HD high-density broadcast standards."

The second-generation GaN-based Ku-band SSPAs/BUCs provide high linearity with what is claimed to be the highest power density and smallest size on the market. The units have been designed for the next generation of high-throughput satellite (HTS) constellations offering the highest efficiency in use of satellite bandwidth and power.

Advantech Wireless is exhibiting in booth G20 (Canada Pavilion) at Futurecom 2016 in Sao Paulo, Brazil (17-20 October).
