Diamond Microwave launches 1kW ultra-compact pulsed GaN X-band SSPA

Exhibiting in Stand 250 at European Microwave Week (EuMW 2015) in Paris, France (6-11 September), Diamond Microwave Devices Ltd of Leeds, UK (which specializes in high-performance microwave power amplifiers) has announced a ten-fold increase in its power output capability with the addition of a 1kW X-band model to its range of gallium nitride (GaN)-based pulsed solid-state power amplifiers (SSPA).

The DM-X1K0-01 is an SSPA operating over a 1200MHz bandwidth centred at 9.5GHz. The ultra-compact design measures only 244mm x 134mm x 50mm excluding heatsink and connectors, making it suitable for use as an alternative to a travelling-wave tube amplifier (TWTA) in various radar applications.

"Like all our GaN SSPAs, these amplifiers are extremely compact, employing a chip-and-wire microwave design," says business development manager Ian Davis. "This state-of-the art performance is combined with a power-to-volume ratio we believe to be among the highest in the industry for such products," he adds. "Similar designs can be tailored to suit other frequency ranges in the 1-18GHz range."

The Diamond Microwave amplifier range features designs that are flexible in layout and architecture, and are fully customizable to meet individual specifications for electrical, mechanical and environmental parameters. All of the firm's amplifiers are suitable for use in demanding defence, aerospace and communications applications.
