The ACTX-Ka8W-Ex-V6 from Acorde is a Low-power GaN Block-Up Converter (BUC) that up-converts an Input frequency from 950 to 2000 MHz to an output frequency from 27.5 to 31 GHz. This BUC has been designed for Ka-band professional & military satellite communication systems (ground, SOTP, SOTM, maritime, etc.). It delivers a saturated output power of 39 dBm with a gain of more than 60 dB. This BUC consumes 45 watts of power and requires a supply voltage of 20 to 60 VDC. The ACTX-Ka8W-Ex-V6 is available in a module that measures 7.7 x 5.3 x 2.0 inches with a Type N (F) connector at the TX input and a grooved WR-28 waveguide interface at the output.
