This breakthrough solution is utilized in small cell and massive MIMO base stations to deliver higher data rates and enhanced network efficiency that result in improved carrier capacity and greater coverage for data-intensive, multimedia and IoT devices. The amplifier’s highly efficient design boasts fully-matched input/output and high gain for best-in-class operation.
5000 MHz, 10 W Power Amplifier
The TA4002R utilizes the lastest GaN technology to provide 10 W of power in the C-1 and C-2 bands. The unit is designed to be integrated in any system that requires high-power, high efficiency and high linearity in the entire 4400 to 5000 MHz band. The amplifier provides 23 dB of small signal gain and can produce over 2 W of 64-QAM OFDM power. The compact unit measures only 2.73 in. × 2.53 in. × 1.31 in. and maintains a low operating temperature due to its built-in heat sink.
Triad RF Systems

Designed to solve various SWaP-C in high performance L-Band avionic systems, IGNP1011L2400 is a new high-power GaN on SiC RF power module/pallet, designed specifically for IFF/SSR systems operating under either Mode S ELM or standard Mode S pulse conditions, supplying a minimum of 2200 W of peak output power, with typically > 16 dB of gain and 57 percent efficiency and operating from a 50 V supply voltage.
Integra Technologies Inc.
Micro-Transcoder™ GPS Modulator
Jackson Labs Technologies Inc.’s Micro-Transcoder™ is by a large margin the world’s smallest, full-constellation, stand-alone, real-time 10-channel GPS simulator. The Micro-Transcoder™ achieves hardening of the customers’ GPS equipment by splicing the unit in-between the existing antenna and the users’ GPS receiver and taking the output of any secure PNT source such as INS, SAASM, M-code, Iridium STL or concurrent GNSS receiver and encoding (RF modulating) the baseband PNT and UTC timing information into a standard GPS L1 RF signal.

RFE Synthesizer provides a reliable, fast tuning, microwave source covering the 11 to 15 GHz range. The design is completely designed using COT surface mount components.
XFdtd Electromagnetic Simulation Software
Remcom announced 5G antenna array design features in the latest release of XFdtd® 3D EM Simulation Software, including workflow enhancements for modeling complex devices at mmWave frequencies. The advanced antenna systems in modern devices leverage beam steering and multiple data stream transmission to meet 5G throughput requirements. XFdtd provides performance metrics for 5G beam steering applications by simulating the radiation pattern for different array or subarray phasing conditions that are used to steer a beam.
ProLine Series Antennas
KP Performance Antennas has debuted its new ProLine antennas, a series of high performance parabolic and sector antennas that are perfectly suited for high density, point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and backhaul applications. KP’s new ProLine parabolic antennas are engineered to deliver high, stable gain over wide bandwidths with side-lobe and back-lobe suppression for mitigating inter-sector interference. These 5 GHz antennas are available in 1 and 2 ft. diameters with gain performance of 24 and 29 dBi, respectively.
