Wideband GaN Amplifiers: Modular, non-ITAR

gandownloadThe Teledyne Microwave Solutions (TMS) family of GaN-based amplifiers maximizes power density and efficiency, and establishes a new benchmark for small size in the 0.1 to 6.0 GHz range that operates over multi octave. With dimensions of 2.5"L x 2"W x 0.42"H at only 2.1 cubic inches, these modular, non-ITAR GaN amplifiers maintain the rugged design characteristics needed for harsh airborne and land based requirements.

Depending on frequency band, output power ranges between 15 and 40 watts with minimum overall gain of 50 dB. In addition to normal DC connections via a 15 pin Micro D connector, other convenient control / interface features available via the connector include a TX enable / disable TTL command (100 ns TYP, 200 nx MAX); over temperature automatic shutdown and associated alarm (TTL); and the ability to monitor unit temperature via an analog voltage which is proportional to case temperature. Optimized to cover 5 common frequency bands, this line of GaN amplifiers can be easily adapted to comply with your frequency and power-level requirements due to the modular design technique used by TMS engineers.

High Power GaN X-band SSPAs

GaN-based SSPAs from Teledyne Microwave Solutions (TMS) deliver outstanding RF performance for applications spanning the 9-10 GHz radar market. These GaN-based SSPAs offer 350W, 550W, and 1KW peak output power. They can reliably meet the often demanding requirements of any airborne or ground-based environment and are packaged in compact, environmentally sealed housings. Available with up to 1 GHz bandwidth, these SSPAs can also deliver extended bandwidth operation with de-rated output beyond 1GHz, and can be combined to achieve higher output power levels.

SSPA Modules. TMS also offers X-band, GaN SSPA modules in the same 9-10 GHz range that can be deployed in a wide variety of applications either on their own, or linked with other modules. These amplifiers span the range of 25W to 350W of peak power, and are used as driver applications for higher power systems or on their own for lower power applications. Modules also include their own bias control for GaN devices but utilize external power supplies and control circuitry for flexibility of configuration. Features and Common Specifications
