TRAK Microwave's GaN SSPA powers Ku band block upconverter

 The model MFC147 from TRAK Microwave provides 13.75 to 14.50 GHz coverage for civilian and military aviation Ku-band SATCOM applications, including In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) systems and UAV communications. The unit features a ruggedized design and innovative thermal management technique to withstand challenging airborne environments utilizing SMT construction with no open die. Input frequency to the Block Upconverter (BUC) is 950-1700 MHz, with Ku-band output of +12 to +17 dBm.  An integrated, low-noise, GaN, Solid State Power Amplifier (SSPA) provides 25 watts minimum output power providing better than -120 dBc/Hz noise power (-140 dBc/Hz typical) and <-22 dBc spectral regrowth (OQPSK).
