Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) July 10, 2015
Advantech Wireless, a global leader for Satellite broadband communications solutions, announced today the release of the Second Generation GaN Technology based 1,250W Ku-Band SapphireBlu UltraLinear SSPA/SSPB for satellite broadcast teleports.
The Second Generation SapphireBlu Class of UltraLinear GaN based SSPAs and BUCs from Advantech Wireless are the ideal choice for high power, wide frequency band uplinks. One single GaN based SSPA offers higher performance in multi carrier mode than several linearized TWTs and Klystrons, making them the ideal choice for large teleports and broadcast industry. The new systems can saturate all transponders of an entire satellite and obtain maximum bandwidth/power efficiency.
Cristi Damian, VP Business Development at Advantech Wireless stated, “These units are designed as an alternative to legacy TWTs and Klystrons in large teleports. By removing the need for expensive indoor filter combining schemes, UPS, air conditioning systems, and expensive outdoor wave guide runs, a single 1250W Ku-Band Second Generation GaN unit can easily replace 10 or more Klystrons or indoor TWTs. In many cases, this allows consolidation of traffic from multiple antennas and multiple satellites to a single antenna and a single satellite. These teleport architecture changes will then result in massive OPEX cost reductions, and will free up the cash for the teleport operator. The initial cost of investment is recovered in most of the cases in just one year of electricity bill savings.”
The new UltraLinear GaN based SSPAs and BUCs from Advantech Wireless are redundant ready, with power expandable to 3kW by phase combining; High power density in a compact, rugged, weatherproof package with considerable reduction in size, weight, and energy consumption.
