Montreal,CANADA – October 16, 2015 – Advantech Wireless, a global leader inSatellitebroadband communications solutions, announced today the release of the Second Generation350W/500W CL-Band SapphireBluTMGaN(Gallium Nitride) based SSPA/SSPB for Troposcatter (TROPO)Applications.
The new Advantech Wireless Super Compact TT Series SapphireBluTM SSPAs/ SSPBsprovide the highest power density in the industry and operate over the Low C-band TROPOfrequency of 4.4 – 5.0 GHz. These new Solid State Power Amplifiers are designed to be used, as direct replacement of older generation Klystrons or TWTs.Troposcatter(also known astropospheric scatter) is a method of communicating with microwave signals reflecting from the atmosphere for robust communications links over very long distances.
“Tropoapplications have certain advantages for strategic communication links, either for Military users, or for remote access in isolated areas with no satellite access. The Second Generation GaN 350W/500W SSPAs address this fast growing market, with a unique highly efficient and powerful solution. These New SSPAs provide a 70% reduction in weight and size, and a 40% reduction in energy consumption compared to the previous generations of tropoSSPAs. They are ideal for tactical mobile applications, where size, weight and power efficiency are critical,” stated Cristi Damian, VP Business Development at Advantech Wireless.
Advantech Wireless TROPO line of GaNSSPAs, is a perfect match for the new generation of high data rate, long haul, cost efficient communication links using TROPOscattering technologies. With extremely high linearity, these systems are redundant ready, with built-in L-band up converters and are very energy efficient.
