Advantech Wireless, a global leader for satellite broadband communications solutions, announced today the release of the Second Generation GaN Technology based 200W/250W Ku-Band BUC.

Designed for the broadcast industry, these revolutionary GaN based systems exceed the stringent requirements of critical SNG transmission, where RF power availability is mandatory even in the event of heavy rain fading. The Second Generation GaN based Ku-Band Hubmount SSPA/BUC provides super High linearity with the highest possible power density and smallest size on the market. These units are redundant ready with no external controllers.

“The key driver for our innovations is to deliver higher performance to achieve the best ROI in the market,” stated Cristi Damian, VP Business development at Advantech Wireless.  “Satellite news broadcasting, emergency communication recovery, military satcom trailers, require as much RF power as possible, in a small, highly energy efficient footprint, while at the same time providing maximum ruggedness and reliability. The Second Generation Ku-Band 200W/250W GaN, is designed to meet these requirements, replace legacy older generation TWTs and SSPAs, along with empowering DVB-S2X and Ultra HD high density Broadcast Standards.”
