The design of the 50W GaN X-band BUCs is based on Advantech Wireless’s industry proven reliable solid-state high power amplifiers. These GaN BUCs are integrated units, completed with power supply, phase-locked oscillator, mixer, filter and cooling mechanism. Built-in design features result in a product with exceptional linearity and operating efficiency.
