Advantech Wireless launches next-gen 150W Ku-band GaN-based BUC SSPA/SSPB

Advantech Wireless Inc of Montreal, Canada (which manufactures satellite, RF equipment and microwave systems) has launched a next-generation gallium nitride (GaN)-based 150W Ku-band solid-state power amplifier block up-converter (BUC SSPA/SSPB).

Designed in a compact weatherproof package for the next generation of high-throughput satellite constellations, the new 150W Ku-band BUC provides higher linearity with higher efficiency, says the firm.

"The next generation of GaN SatCom SSPAs continues the development roadmap introduced by Advantech Wireless back in 2010," says Cristi Damian, VP business development. "These 150W Ku-band GaN units provide an impressive 70% reduction in overall size, and 60% reduction in weight, as compared to the first-generation GaN products. At the same time, the energy efficiency is improved by an additional 25%," he reckons.
