Solid State Power Amplifiers

DownloadEWCapBroBy combining significant R&D funding with judicious acquisitions of microwave technology leaders, Teledyne Microwave Solutions (TMS) has built a strong portfolio of SSPAs supported by innovative, collaborative engineering and manufacturing teams. Covering 100MHz to 100GHz, with power from 0.1W to 10kW, TMS SSPAs include both Pulsed and CW for all markets, from commercial Satcom to military and space qualified platforms.

Amplifiers

TMS uses LDMOS, GaAs, InP & GaN technologies to meet customer's needs, generally producing custom designs to customer specifications. GaN is particularly successful in pulsed applications, with many different amplifier designs available up to 18GHz.

Teledyne pulls on existing module designs to support drive chain and control circuits, hence reserving engineering resources to address critical design of power amplifiers with mechanical and thermal integrity. This enables new design efforts to be completed on time and with reduced risk.

SWaP (Size Weight and Power) have become increasingly more critical in the design of new and legacy systems. TMS has some of the smallest and lowest weight SSPAs on the market. A good example is our 15W Ku-Band SSPA which operates over data-link & Satcom bands with a total weight of less than 0.5 lbs and only 0.5" thick.

TMS also offers its new Solid State High Power Amplifier (SSHPA) product line providing power from 100W at module level to multi kW at system level, in frequency bands ranging from UHF to Ku-Band. These amplifiers utilize state of the art thermal management schemes and unique highly efficient coaxial power combiners to allow designs in smaller form factor with improved reliability.

With 20 years of experience and extensive use of ATE (Automated Test Equipment), TMS is well placed to support our customers' technical and production needs for all SSPAs.

Amplifiers

We have designed and manufactured amplifiers using all major semiconductor materials, LDMOS, GaN, GaAs, and InP, to produce narrow, wideband, and pulse, receive and transmit amplifiers from 1 MHz to 220 GHz and power levels from mW to over 10 kW.

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.
