WB Ka LNA

SATCOM Amplifier System by Orbital Research

Note : Your request will be directed to Orbital Research.

This Ka Band Low Noise Amplifier has been developed for commercial SATCOM applications from 17.7 to 20.2 GHz. The amplifier provides a P1dB of over 13 dBm with gain of 55 dB, and has a low noise temperature of 120 K. This low noise amplifier supports Global Xpress (GX) configurations and high throughput satellites (HTS) to deliver the gain and linearity needed to handle higher-order modulation schemes like DVB-S2X, in both the GEO and LEO satellite markets. This amplifier has been designed for satellite teleports and gateways, telemetry, tracking and command applications (TT&C), and airborne terminals, this wideband amplifier offers exceptional performance and data throughput.

The LNA is manufactured using GaAs pHEMT technology and is available in a module that measures 111.5 x 41.3 x 31.9 mm with WR-42 waveguide interface at the input and SMA connector at the output.
