High Reliability, Low Energy Consumption, Features Of New Advantech Wireless 2Gen GaN SSPA

For a main implementation by the broadcast industry as well as emergency response government services, new orders in excess of $1 million have been received by Advantech Wireless for that firm's second generation (2gen) gallium Nitride (GaN) technology based 250W Ku-Band Solid State Power Amplifier (SSPA).

This new SSPA offers, according to the company, low energy consumption and high reliability, these new SSPAs from Advantech Wireless are the preferred choice for the Broadcast Industry, as well as Emergency Response Government Services, provide super high linearity with the highest possible power density and smallest size on the market. These units have been designed for the next generation of HTS Constellations offering the highest efficiency in use of satellite bandwidth and power.

Cristi Damian, the Vice President of Business Development at Advantech Wireless, indicated that as much RF power as possible in a small, highly energy efficient footprint, is required by satellite news broadcasting, emergency communication recovery and MILSATCOM mobile trailers. The 2gen 250W Ku-Band GaN-based SSPA is designed to meet these requirements, replace legacy older generation TWTs and SSPAs, while supporting the extremely high linearity required for complex waveforms such as DVB-S2X and Ultra HD high density Broadcast Standards.
