Norsat Introduces New Line of GaN-Based Block Upconverters

Communication solutions provider, Norsat International, has announced the addition of new GaN block upconverters to their signature ATOM Series of BUCs. Norsat’s ATOM series of Ku and Ka-band GaN and GaAs BUCs are small, light, and extremely efficient. With industry leading size, weight, power and MIL-STD specs, these BUCs can be integrated into a variety of systems with the most stringent specifications and extreme form factors.

The ATOM GaN block upconverters feature:

  • Outstanding thermal management
  • Excellent SWaP balance
  • Compact, light, efficient design
  • High customization ability
  • Weather-proof, rugged construction
  • Shock and vibration proof construction
  • 3-Year warranty for standard BUCs

The new GaN BUCs are ideal for applications such as Airborne, RADAR, TWTA replacement, SOTM, COTP, Portable VSAT, CDL and more. The small size and low weight simplifies integration, saves space on platform and in transit cases and leads to lower vehicle payload weight. Norsat’s 80W Ku-band GaN ATOM BUC is 62% lighter and 70% smaller than competing products in the industry. In addition, the Norsat ATOM Series products are easily configured with Norsat’s exclusive ATOM Control software, an intuitive user interface that provides the ability to monitor and control ATOM Series BUCs and SSPAs.

Norsat is showcasing the products at the the SATELLITE 2019 event in Washington, DC this week at booth #1235.
