Integral Systems... Small Package Power Puncher (SatCom)
Integral Systems, Inc., (NASDAQ: ISYS) has now made available their ultra-compact and efficient 200 Watt Ku-band Solid State Power Amplifier (SSPA). The new 200 Watt SSPA is offered through Integral Systems’ SATCOM Solutions division. Earlier this year, Integral Systems announced its 100W SSPA, which represented a major leap forward in terms of SSPA size, weight, power efficiency and cost. Like the 100W SSPA, the 200W SSPA offers high-power efficiency and large power output from a small package — 960 Watt consumption at 230 Watt Radio Frequency (RF) output, while producing minimal heat. At just 12.5” (W) x 13” (L) x 3.65” (H) and 22.5 pounds in component configuration, Integral Systems’ 200 Watt SSPA is the smallest, lightest and most efficient power amplifier on the market.
The compact size, low weight, high efficiency and low cost of Integral Systems’ ultra-compact and efficient 200 Watt SSPA makes it the ideal choice for customers requiring a highly-efficient amplifier solution for Size, Weight and Power (SWAP) sensitive applications or those looking to replace or retrofit Traveling Wave Tube Amplifiers (TWTA). Conversion to SSPA from TWTA is made simple via Integral Systems’ Drop-in Replacement Program with the added benefits of improved reliability, increased efficiency, ultra-compact size, lower weight and reduced heat when compared to a typical TWTA. Integral Systems’ 200 Watt SSPA reduces initial capital costs – up to 40 percent depending on system requirements – as well as ongoing operating costs by eliminating expensive tube replacements. The entire line of Integral Systems’ family of 25, 40, 100 and 200 Watt SSPAs represent breakthroughs in size, weight, power and cost. Last year, Integral Systems acquired CVG Inc. and Avtec Systems, Inc., which now operate as Integral Systems’ SATCOM Solutions division.
