Linwave to Spotlight Sub-miniature Block Up Converter Modules

September 23, 2011

Linwave Electronic Manufacturing Services, exhibiting in booth 332 at EuMW, is introducing a range of sub-miniature Block Up Converter (nBUC) Modules.

Designed specifically for military SatCom and commercial mobile communication systems, the Nano BUC is ideally suited to the latest generation of compact fly away terminals and man pack applications. Utilising Linwave’s extensive BUC design and development experience, the Nano BUC combines outstanding RF performance in an industry-leading mechanical volume to provide a state of the art BUC module.

The Nano BUC is capable of driving an external SSPA or TWTA directly. Alternatively, the BUC can be integrated with Linwave’s chip and wire GaN based SSPA modules to provide a very compact integrated higher output power module. Output powers up to 20 W are available.
