Advantech Wireless, a global leader for High Throughput Satellite (HTS) broadband communications solutions, today announced a new, significant advance in solid state power amplifier (SSPA) technology with the release of its SapphireBlu™ Solid State Power Amplifier/Power Block (SSPA/SSPB), based on second generation gallium nitride (GaN) technology.
Fujitsu Ltd. and Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. announced the development of a gallium-nitride (GaN) high-electron mobility transistor (HEMT) power amplifier for use in W-band (75 to 110 GHz) transmissions. This can be used in a high-capacity wireless network with coverage over a radius of several kilometers.
COMTECH PST introduces another new Gallium Nitride (GaN) amplifier for X-Band applications. This class AB linear design operates over the full 9.0-10 GHz frequency range and is ideal for use in Phase Array Radar applications, as a TWT replacement or for a microwavecommunication link.
Skyworks introduces two new global navigation low noise amplifiers. The SKY65605-21 and SKY65611-21 are both designed for BeiDou/GPS/GLONASS/Galileo receiver applications and are optimized to operate from 1559 to 1606 MHz.
Custom MMIC, a leading developer of performance driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMIC), is now offering a new, low noise amplifier (LNA) that is perfect for EW and communication systems where small size and low power consumption are critical — the CMD223 9 to 18 GHz balanced low noise amplifier.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new 2W GaN driver amplifier from Qorvo. The TGA2958-SM is a packaged Ku-Band amplifier fabricated on Qorvo’s 0.15um GaN on SiC production process (QGaN15). Operating over a 13 to 18 GHz bandwidth, the TGA2598-SM delivers 2W of saturated output power with 20 dB large signal gain and > 25 percent power added efficiency.
ANADIGICS Inc., a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, introduced a new family of hybrid line amplifier modules. Specifically developed as drop-in replacement solutions for system amplifiers, the company’s new ACA27XX hybrid modules include passive components in a pin compatible SOT-115J package and are optimized to minimize or eliminate tuning requirements.
NuWaves Engineering, an international radio frequency (RF) and microwave solutions provider, announced the release of an upgraded broadband RF power amplifier (PA) for L- and S-band transmitters and data radios, the NuPower™ 12B01A model, featuring improved power efficiency and operational temperature performance and a wider supply voltage range.
