500 Watt GaN SSPA Improves Size-to-Power Standard in L and S bands

Teledyne Paradise Datacom, a business unit of Teledyne Microwave Solutions, has announced the addition of a new 500W solid-state power amplifier (SSPA) to their line of Compact Outdoor GaN SSPAs. With a size of 10.0” x 19.5” x 6.5”, the new outdoor SSPA provides the smallest footprint available for a 500 Watt SSPA in the L/S bands from 1.75 to 2.12 GHz.

The full line of Paradise Compact Outdoor SSPAs is built to deliver high reliability while withstanding extreme environmental conditions. With the highest power density available in the industry, these SSPAs can be deployed in outdoor scenarios that have traditionally been reserved for older traveling wave tube amplifier (TWTA) technology.

Key features of the new 500 Watt Outdoor SSPA (MODEL HP-AS2-500) include:

  • Instantaneous Bandwidth - 1.75 – 2.12 GHz
  • Psat – 500 watts / Plinear – 250 watts
  • Gallium Nitride (GaN) architecture
  • Integrated Reflected Power Monitor
  • True RMS Power Detection
  • Smallest power-to-footprint-ratio in the industry (10.0” X 19.5” X 6.50”)
  • Available in single-thread and fully redundant configurations.

Paradise SSPAs are available in a broad range of bands (S, L, C, X, and Ku) and power levels (100W through 500W).
