Comtech Xicom wins $1.3m Order for GaN amps
Solid-state power amplifiers will be used in an airborne In Flight Connectivity (IFC) system
Comtech Xicom has received an order for more than $1.3 million for GaN-based solid-state power amplifiers (SSPAs) for use in an airborne In Flight Connectivity (IFC) system.
"This order is for the increasingly active IFC market, and further extends an ongoing production run," said Fred Kornberg, president and CEO of Comtech Telecommunications.
"Customers have embraced the high reliability and efficiency of our GaN technology and value the added benefit of small size and weight, especially for airborne systems," he added.
Comtech Xicom Technology manufactures a wide variety of tube-based and solid-state power amplifiers for military and commercial satellite uplink applications. The product range encompasses power levels from 8 W to 3 kW, with frequency coverage in sub-bands within the 2 GHz to 51 GHz spectrum.
