Advantech Wireless Second Generation GaN Technology based 300W C-Band BUC SSPA/SSPB for maritime application
The second generation 300W C-band GaN SSPA/SSPB from Advantech Wireless offers an impressive 60% RF Linear Power increase, while reducing the energy consumption by 30%, and reducing the weight and overall size by 45%. In terms of linear power, the 300W unit is the equivalent of a previous 500W SSPA, and of a 750W TWT.
These units are specifically designed for maritime application, where bandwidth demand has increased exponentially, and where the high temperature in the Radome is always a challenge.
“The improved GaN reliability and low size allow perfect integration into the ship stabilized antennas, where size is extremely important for perfect balancing, and where heat generation has to be reduced to the minimum,” stated Cristi Damian, VP Business Development at Advantech Wireless. “The Second Generation of 300W C-band GaN based systems, continues the tradition of the previous 200W C-band GaN based SSPAs from Advantech Wireless, already deployed and installed on thousands of ships in the sea, with outstanding performance.”
