Comtech Xicom Technology Expands its High Power GaN SSPA Product Line

Comtech Xicom Technology, a part of Comtech's Commercial Solutions segment has released a series of high-power GaN SSPAs as part of its industry-leading SSPA product line. The new compact and rugged amplifiers are significantly more efficient than competing SSPAs making them ideal for transportable and mobile applications where power draw matters.

For Ku-band customers, the new XTLIN-200K covers the 13.75 to 14.5 GHz Ku-band with a minimum of 200 W of linear power. The unit is available in a compact, low profile outdoor package that is ideally suited for transportable applications. The new XTLIN-100K also covers the 13.75 to 14.5 GHz, with a minimum of 100 W of linear power, and is in the same package size as its industry-leading 100 W Linear X-band unit, allowing easy conversion from X-band to Ku-band.

At X-band, the new XTLIN-200X further extends Comtech Xicom’s tactical X-band product line, offering a minimum of 200 W of linear power. The compact package size is identical to that of the new 200 W Ku-band amplifier. Comtech Xicom already had industry-leading high efficiency X-band GaN products in certified terminals at linear powers of 20 W, 50 W and 100 W – and now the product line extends to 200 W.

The new XTSLIN-200X compares favorably in size, weight, and especially power consumption to available products at this power level, and the common package size with the new Ku-band products is ideal for tactical military customers that want to optimize satellite availability. The Ku-band products are ideal for both commercial and military SATCOM applications, with very high efficiency that’s optimal for high data rate transportable applications.

Comtech Xicom manufactures a wide variety of tube-based and solid-state power amplifiers for military and commercial satellite uplink applications. Its product range encompasses power levels from 8 W to 3 kW, with frequency coverage in sub-bands within the 2 GHz to 45 GHz spectrum. Amplifiers are also available for fixed and ground-based, ship-board, and airborne mobile applications.
