Design Wins For Mission Microwave

News
Company announces substantial orders and design wins for its GaN-based SSPAs and BUCs

Mission Microwave Technologies, a US manufacturer of GaN-based Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPAs) and Block Upconverters (BUCs) confirms that it has received substantial orders and design wins from a range of top-tier system integrators in both government and commercial satellite communications markets.

"Since Mission Microwave was founded over four years ago, we have made steady progress winning the confidence and contracts of the leading suppliers of satcom terminals for use in ground, air and maritime services. We can foresee building on this solid foundation of customer validation to expand the presence and availability of products to more markets segments that benefit from our products' superior performance and remarkable benefits in Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP)," said Francis Auricchio, president and CEO of Mission Microwave.

Major customer wins include applications for Ku Band BUCs across the 25 to 400 watt range. These BUCs are used on extremely lightweight fly-away and mobile terminals, including vehicular mounted terminals that are part of a nationwide first responder network. Other customer wins include system integrators of innovative flat panel antennas and lightweight deployable network terminals.

In the satellite terminal industry, customers have come to depend on the Dart, Stinger, Javelin, and Titan platforms to bring tremendous weight savings and performance to their terminal designs for power ranges of 10 to 200 Watts in both commercial and government bands, according to Mission. Recently two major suppliers of maritime terminals announced new high throughput 10 Watt terminals compatible with Inmarsat's Global Xpress network that are based on Mission Microwave products. Other recent Ka Band wins include high power BUCs for large gateway terminals for use in wideband global satellite networks.

Auricchio also commented: "The satellite terminal market in X, Ku, and Ka Band increasingly demands the reliability of SSPAs to replace tube amplifiers across the entire range of mobile, fixed, and transportable satellite terminals. Mission Microwave has proven its technology and ability to deliver and support the ground terminal market as it continues to expand in support of increased in-orbit capacity across a variety of global satellite network architectures."



CS International 26-27 March 2019, Sheraton Airport Hotel, Brussels

In its ninth year, CS International will continue to provide timely, comprehensive coverage of every important sector within the compound semiconductor industry. Presentations are split into 5 key themes and each industry key theme will be delivered by a keynote presentation from a leading industry figure as well as a market analyst presentation tailored to the theme. Together, the talks will detail breakthroughs in device technology; offer insights into the current status and the evolution of compound semiconductor devices; and provide details of advances in tools and processes that will help to drive up fab yields and throughputs. Attendees at the two-day conference will gain an up-to-date overview of the status of the CS industry, and have opportunities to meet many other key players within this community.
