Explore TMS Solid State Power Amplifiers

TMS uses LDMOS, GaAs, InP & GaN technologies to meet customer's needs, generally producing custom designs to customer specifications. GaN is particularly successful in pulsed applications, with many different amplifier designs available up to 18GHz.

Teledyne pulls on existing module designs to support drive chain and control circuits, hence reserving engineering resources to address critical design of power amplifiers with mechanical and thermal integrity. This enables new design efforts to be completed on time and with reduced risk.

SWaP (Size Weight and Power) have become increasingly more critical in the design of new and legacy systems. TMS has some of the smallest and lowest weight SSPAs on the market. A good example is our 15W Ku-Band SSPA which operates over data-link & Satcom bands with a total weight of less than 0.5 lbs and only 0.5" thick.

TMS also offers its new Solid State High Power Amplifier (SSHPA) product line providing power from 100W at module level to multi kW at system level, in frequency bands ranging from UHF to Ku-Band. These amplifiers utilize state of the art thermal management schemes and unique highly efficient coaxial power combiners to allow designs in smaller form factor with improved reliability.

With 20 years of experience and extensive use of ATE (Automated Test Equipment), TMS is well placed to support our customers' technical and production needs for all SSPAs.
