Advantech Wireless releases second-generation GaN-based 125-200W Ka-band SSPA/BUC

Advantech Wireless Inc of Montreal, Canada (which manufactures satellite, RF equipment and microwave systems) has launched its second-generation gallium nitride (GaN)-based 125-200W Ka-band UltraLinear solid-state power amplifier/block up-converter (SSPA/BUC) products. They follow the firm's 100W Ka-band GaN-based units (which have been adopted by several military organizations).

The new UltraLinear GaN-based SSPAs are designed to operate in harsh outdoor environments and have been designed for Ka-band low Earth orbit (LEO) and geostationary orbit (GEO) satellite up-link applications. The GaN-based SSPB-4010Ka series comprise integrated units, complete with detachable power supply, phase-locked oscillator, mixer, filter and proprietary cooling mechanism. Intended for outdoor operation, the second-generation GaN-based systems are claimed to be the most advanced GaN-based Ka-band units on the market, providing higher power and higher reliability.

"Ka-band solid-state technology has been part of Advantech Wireless' product development roadmap since 2000, when we developed the first worldwide Ka-band terminal to be Mil certified by the precursor of what we now know as WGS," says Cristi Damian, VP business development. "GaN technology allows us to reach power levels that were not possible before, and to serve customers that are looking for solutions in this fast-growing market segment."

Advantech Wireless is exhibiting in booth 1.F40 at IBC 2016 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands (9-13 September).
