Integrated Low-Profile K/Ka Band Transceiver for Small SAT Applications

Arralis has launched its new K/Ka-Band transceiver for all satellite applications. The LE-KaTR-102 transceiver, which is designed to fit within a 1U CubeSat profile (100 x 100 x 100 mm), offers coverage between 27 and 30.5 GHz in the uplink band and 17 to 21.2 GHz in the downlink band. 

The system utilizes Arralis’ Leonis MMIC portfolio and employs a fully integrated VCO and PLL with IQ mixers, for high-speed data communication links between the satellites and ground-based stations. The Leonis chipset was developed to meet the growing demand for low-cost K/Ka-band satellite equipment that is simple to interface with current digital internet hardware. 

Arralis is looking to work with interested customers who wish to evaluate the system. 

The company also announced its expansion into the US market with the official opening of their Florida office in Daytona on Monday 12th of August. 

Arralis is showcasing this new system at the SmallSat Utah from August 5-8 2019.
