Toronto-based Baylin Technologies Inc says that its subsidiary Advantech Wireless Inc of Montreal, Canada (which manufactures satellite, RF equipment and microwave broadband communications systems) has received a large follow-on order for its 25W X-band gallium nitride (GaN)-based block up-converters (BUCs) for military satellite terminals.

“Based on the results they have experienced with the same product from a previous order, an existing customer has placed a further order that will multiply their business with us,” says Baylin’s president & CEO Randy Dewey.

The 25W X-band GaN BUCs are integrated units, complete with power supply, phase-locked oscillator, mixer, filter and cooling mechanism weighing less than 2.5kg.

The BUCs are constructed with built-in design features that meet the most stringent military specifications, says the firm. The units are WGS (Wideband Global Satcom) certified and suitable for harsh environments, Satcom on the Move (SOTM) and man-pack terminal deployments.

“These advanced systems are extremely versatile and specially designed for outdoor operation,” notes Cristi Damian, VP business development at Advantech. “Our customers particularly appreciate the high linearity combined with small size and low energy consumption.”
