Design and Temperature Compensation of a Ku-band Channel Amplifier with ALC for a Satellite Transponder

This article describes the design, development and test results of a Ku-band channel amplifier with an automatic level control (ALC) system for a satellite transponder. A systematic temperature characterization and optimization procedure depending upon...
In tropical regions, satellite communication links at Ku-band frequencies face excess up- and downlink paths loss due to rainfall. The uplink rain attenuation causes a decrease in the signal level received at the satellite receiver, which leads to a decrease of the satellite transmitter power. This signal level is...
