With full M&C capability via RS232, RS485 or Ethernet port and detachable power supply module, the new Second Generation GaN based 150W to 400W X-Band Rackmmount SapphireBlu™ SSPAs/SSPBs provide the ultimate in performance and convenience.

Executive Comment

“These Second Generation GaN SSPAs/SSPBs are the most advanced units on the market. They provide up to 60% higher linearity compared to the first generation GaN, while at the same time reducing the energy consumption. The increased linearity will provide additional link budget margins in order to allow for higher data rate, higher modulation, or more carriers, as required today by the dynamics of Military SatCom traffic. These units are designed to replace older generation 750W TWTs, with exceeding performance and lower OPEX cost,” said Cristi Damian, VP Business Development at Advantech Wireless.
