Advantech Wireless' new generation of GaN-based solid-state power amplifiers powers live Ultra HD TV transmission over satellite

Advantech Wireless Inc of Montreal, Canada (which manufactures satellite, RF equipment and microwave systems) has launched a new generation of gallium nitride (GaN)-based solid-state power amplifiers (SSPAs) with a number of improvements to empower live Ultra HD TV transmission over satellite by providing what is claimed to be higher performance and reliability, the smallest form factor, and the lowest power consumption.

The units are designed for 4K/8K Ultra HD transmission broadcasting and are DVB-S2X ready, providing a 70% increase in linear transmit power, high linearity and reliability with a fraction of the size, weight and power.

"Our new generation of GaN-based SSPAs delivers the best solution for DSNG applications in terms of performance, quality and overall cost of ownership," claims VP business development Cristi Damian. "The SapphireBlu Series of GaN-based SSPAs have enabled Ultra HD TV transmissions for some of the largest and most popular sporting events," he adds. "Due to the combination of our Ku-band UltraLinear GaN-based SSPA system with Advantech Wireless' 13m A-Line Antenna deployed in a major DTH uplink system in Latin America, millions of viewers worldwide have been able to follow the live transmissions of international sporting events."

Advantech Wireless is exhibiting in booth 59 at the SET Expo 2016 broadcast and new media technology trade show & conference in Sao Paulo, Brazil (30 August to 1 September).
