Advantech Releases 4.4 - 5GHz Modular GaN Power Amplifier
2.5kW TROPO C-Band PA has built in redundancy
Advantech Wireless, a Canadian manufacturer of satellite, RF equipment and microwave systems has just announced a 2.5kW TROPO C-Band modular GaN based solid state power amplifier (SSPA).
The new Advantech Wireless Model ARMA-CL2500A, C-Band GaN based SSPA operates over the Low C-band Tropo frequency of 4.4 to 5GHz, and it is fully modular with built in redundancy for all critical RF and Power Supply Modules.
These new devices are designed to be used as direct replacement of older generation Klystrons or TWTs. The most vital feature is the modular design, according to the company. This feature allows plug in modules, as power supplies and RF modules to be hot-swapped without any interruption of service or noticeable reduction in power.
"We are proud to develop best in class innovations. Our TROPO line of GaN SSPAs, is a perfect match for the new generation of high data rate, long haul, cost efficient communication links using tropo scattering technologies. This proves to be a viable solution when satellite links are either cost prohibitive or simply not available," stated Cristi Damian, VP business development at Advantech Wireless.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
