Two HPAs for Next-Gen Satcomms

April 13, 2021

ERZIA Technologies, a full-service RF/microwave amplifier and integrated assembly
company delivering COTS solutions for high-performance/high frequency applications,
is pleased to announce (2) new high power amplifiers designed for the unique
requirements of satellite communication (SATCOM) systems. Operating from 27.5 GHz
to 31 GHz the ERZ-HPA-2700-3100-43 HPA uses the latest GaN technology and
consistently delivers an output power of 15W at saturation, and close to 10W with an
ACPR of -30 dBc under QPSK modulation. The module measures just 131 mm x 100
mm x 33mm (LxWxH) and weighs less than 0.5 kg. Power consumption is also low at
115 W at saturation.

The ERZ-HPA-3000-3100-46 also utilizes latest in GaN technology, operating in the extended Satcom Ka-band from 30 to 31 GHz. It, too, is a high performer —consistently delivering an output power higher than 20W at saturation and 10W with an ACPR of -30 dBc under QPSK modulation. The module is only 203 mm x 120 mm x 41.6mm (LxWxH) and weighs less than 1 kg while consuming just 230 W of power at saturation.

These COTS units can be dropped into a build of an assembled microwave signal chain of a satcom system being built, or, ERZIA can also add up/down converters for a greater level of integration.

Both these units are rugged and reliable airborne-ready GaN devices that are able to take the place of legacy TWT amplifiers formerly perceived as the only solution at these frequencies.
