[SatNews] Advantech Wireless announces the release of their Second Generation GaN Technology based 400W Ku-Band SapphireBlu™ SSPA/SSPB, Ultra HD, and DVB-S2X ready.
The Second Generation of GaN based SSPAs/BUCs continues the development roadmap introduced by Advantech Wireless back in 2010. These GaN based units provide an impressive 60 percent increase in Linear Transmit Power, without any increase in size or weight.
Cristi Damian, VP Business Development at Advantech Wireless, said, “These Ultra Linear GaN based SSPAs are designed to operate in harsh outdoor environments, and to replace multiple indoor combined Klystrons or TWTs. The consequent low OPEX cost, allows in most of the cases to recover the initial investment just in one or two years of energy consumption savings. It is an ideal solution to upgrade older teleports and to increase their profitability in an extremely competitive environment, while bringing on board technology that is DVB-S2X and Ultra HD ready.”
