Advantech Wireless Completes Delivery of their 3kW C-Band SSPA

Advantech Wireless has completed the delivery of the firm's 3kW C-band Outdoor Modular/Summit™ Solid State Power Amplifier (SSPA) System to a major satellite service provider.

The design of the 3kW C-band Outdoor SSPA is based on Advantech Wireless’ industry-proven reliable SSPAs and more than 25 years of experience with high-reliability systems.  Designed to be used as direct replacement of older generation Klystrons or TWTs, these very high power, all outdoor ruggedized systems allow operation over the entire C-band spectrum with multiple carriers.

Offering wide bandwidth and outstanding linearity, the new modular Summit systems have built-in redundancy with soft failure mode and are able to operate simultaneously on both polarizations or on a single polarization with double amount of power.

Cristi Damian, VP of Global Sales & Business Development, RF and Microwave Products at Advantech Wireless, stated that the company is proud to be part of this truly state-of-the-art project. This new 3kW C-band modular SSPA provides extreme flexibility for the teleport operator, with high reliability and built-in redundancy. The system can transmit either simultaneously on two polarizations, or on any single polarization with double power. This approach allows the traffic to be easily adjusted on the spot, when transponder availability is changing on the satellite, with little or no human intervention. This was never achieved with any existing technologies in the past,
