[WHITEPAPER] Second Generation GaN Technology based SSPAs/BUCs
The Second Generation of GaN based SSPAs/BUCs continues the development roadmap introduced by Advantech Wireless back in 2010.
These GaN based units provide an impressive 60% increase in Linear Transmit Power, while reducing the weight and overall size. At the same time, the energy efficiency is increased even further, allowing large OPEX savings.
The Ultra Linear GaN based SSPAs from Advantech Wireless are designed to operate in harsh outdoor environments, and to replace multiple indoor combined Klystrons or TWTs. The consequent low OPEX cost, allows in most of the cases to recover the initial investment just in 1 or 2 years of energy consumption savings. It is an ideal solution to upgrade older teleports and to increase their profitability in an extremely competitive environment, while bringing on board technology that is DVB-S2X and Ultra HD ready.
