Advantech launches DVB-S2X-ready second-gen GaN-based 400W C-band SSPA/SSPB for Ultra HD transmission

Advantech Wireless Inc of Montreal, Canada (which manufactures satellite, RF equipment and microwave systems) has launched a second-generation SapphireBlu gallium nitride (GaN)-based 400W C-band SSPA/SSPB (solid-state power amplifier/solid-state power block) designed for broadcasting applications.

Offering very high linearity (yet no additional increase in size, weight and energy consumption) in a compact single package, the systems are designed for Ultra HD transmission broadcasting and are DVB-S2X ready.

"We have over 20 years of experience working with broadcasters and providing cutting-edge technologies to deliver audio and visual content clearly and reliably," says VP business development Cristi Damian. "We understand the challenges that broadcasters and service providers face while adopting the new bandwidth-demanding Ultra HD standard," he adds. "The second generation of GaN SSPAs empowers broadcasters to deliver their messages while maximizing efficiency and reducing operational cost." The units are designed for very high linearity, as imposed by the heavy Ultra HD traffic, and at the same time be ready to operate under the high-density modulation schemes that are now part of the DVB-S2X standard.
