Advantech Wireless receives over $1m in orders for GaN solid-state power amplifiers for satellite news gathering

Advantech Wireless Inc of Montreal, Canada (which manufactures satellite, RF equipment and microwave systems) has received over $1m of orders for its redundant/phase 250W/500W Extended Ku-Band SapphireBlu gallium nitride (GaN)-based solid-state power amplifier (SSPA) solution for the satellite news gathering (SNG) industry.

The Extended Ku-Band SapphireBlu GaN-based SSPA systems include an L-band interface, provide very high frequency accuracy, allow high-order modulation schemes as per DVB-S2x standard, and require no field adjustment or tuning. Designed to operate as 1:1 redundant 250W, the system can be instantly switched to phase combined mode and deliver 500W of RF power when needed.

“The broadcasting industry has been rapidly adopting Advantech Wireless’ GaN technology for the new generation of SNG trucks and flyaways,” says Cristi Damian, VP business development. “This revolutionary GaN based system meets the stringent requirements of critical TV broadcasting, where power availability is mandatory,” he adds.

Advantech Wireless is exhibiting in booth 7019 at the SATELLITE 2015 Conference and Exhibition in Washington DC (16-19 March).
