L-3 Electron Devices... Prime Power Offering (Comms)

[SatNews] Thanks to some advanced techniques as far as packaging are concerned, this new MPM enters the market...
L-3 Electron Devices has introduced its new M1291 high-power density Microwave Power Module (MPM). The M1291 is capable of producing 110 watts of saturated RF output power at 33 percent efficiency over the 30 to 31 GHz frequency band and operates from 270 VDC prime power. A pre-distortion linearizer allows the M1291 MPM to provide 50 watts of MIL-STD-188-164 linear power with excellent spurious performance at -60 dBc. Advanced packaging techniques provide an ultracompact 9” x 8” x 2.75” form factor, which features an integrated heatsink and is available with forced air cooling for airborne operation in the -55 to +85°C temperature range. The unit is fully MIL-STD-461E compliant.
