Aethercomm Inc., has recently completed a high power SSPA using a Gallium Nitride (GaN) with a frequency range covering 2.9 to 3.1 GHz: Aethercomm part number SSPA 2.9-3.1-300. The devices in this amplifier design are not matched, therefore the frequency band is scalable from 2.7 to 2.9 GHz or 2.7 to 3.5 GHz with similar performance. This high power SSPA produces 300 to 400 watts peak output power.
