Syrlinks Selects Qorvo Amplifiers for New Space Applications

Syrlinks, a leading provider of radio communication and geolocation equipment, has selected Qorvo’s amplifiers for use in its telemetry tracking and control modules for Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites.

The first six satellites of the constellation, designed by Airbus OneWeb Satellites, were recently launched to provide internet connectivity practically anywhere in the world. The industry-leading reliability and performance of the Qorvo products reduce stress on the satellite power systems and ensure signal integrity in both transmit and receive modes.

Close collaboration and flexibility across both companies’ functional teams were key to the success of this project. Syrlinks integrated the Qorvo RF front-end components into the space-qualified module and provided product definition and performance requirements for the Qorvo products. Qorvo also provided product application, manufacturing and test support.

The MMIC power amplifier selected is built on Qorvo’s highly reliable and efficient 0.15 µm Gallium Nitride (GaN) process technology, QGaN15, which supports high-frequency applications through 40 GHz. The Low Noise Amplifier is built on their 90nm Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) pHEMT process, QPHT09, which has best-in-class noise figure. The company has nearly 100 commercial products (die and package options) built on these processes.

Syrlinks specializes in radio communication and geolocation subsystems for space, defense and safety applications. Its NewSpace products perfectly meet the new requirements of the space industry. Syrlinks’ telemetry, tracking and control modules enable remote sensing and monitoring of the Airbus OneWeb LEO satellites for internet connectivity service.

Both Qorvo and Syrlinks were at the International Microwave Symposium event in Boston earlier this week.
