Filtronic announces latest E-band amplifier
Taurus amplifier has double the available output power of its predecessors
UK-based RF and microwave chip firm Filtronic has announced its latest E-band amplifier, Taurus, designed to address the challenges faced by today’s terrestrial and non-terrestrial wireless networks.
According to the company, the new device provides a reliable and efficient solution that enables seamless connectivity across diverse environments including commercial and military applications.
The Taurus amplifier has double the available output power of its predecessors. It combines the power of two Cerus 8 E-Band amplifier modules, each containing eight GaAs pHEMT PA MMICs, which are performance matched, with their power combined in waveguide to deliver maximum output.
Taurus has a typical PSAT of 39dBm, and its high linearity supports 512QAM modulation. With a full 5GHz bandwidth, the E-band amplifier offers exceptional coverage and is designed to adapt to evolving network requirements. Its modular architecture and future-proof design, make it a sound investment for long-term network infrastructure planning.
Dan Rhodes, director of business development at Filtronic said: “We have dedicated substantial resources and expertise to develop a product that addresses the increasing demands of today’s digital landscape. This ground-breaking product will revolutionise wireless networks, delivering unmatched performance and connectivity. With its advanced features and performance, Taurus can help to unlock the full potential of next-generation wireless networks.”
