Advantech Launches Ka-Band SSPAs and BUCs for LEO/MEO SATCOM Applications

Advantech Wireless Technologies has released new state-of-the-art Dual Band and Ka-Band Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPAs) and Block Up Converters (BUCs) that are specifically engineered for LEO/MEO ground station applications. These products are designed to serve as a solid-state alternative to traditional traveling tube based (TWT) technologies typically used in gateway earth stations.

Based on Advantech’s proprietary technology, this new series of amplifiers delivers features that have a beneficial impact on both Cap-X and Op-X budgets and provide the highest availability through high MTBF and low MTTR. 

Key Features Include:
  • Field serviceability
  • Low sparing costs
  • Component-level diagnostics

Ideal for communications purposes, all the system elements communicate over Advantech’s new MicroManager (M²) M&C platform based on the latest open CAN Bus protocol and are suitable for hub-mount and well as any mobile application such as military mobile or SNG.
