Pioneering New Frontiers with Ka-band Amplifier Innovation

2020-09-28 / Number of views:817

Comtech Xicom Technology, Inc., the world’s leading satellite communications (SATCOM) uplink power amplifier supplier, is trailblazing the way forward at Ka-band with amplifiers from 10 watts to kilowatts for transportable, fixed and mobile terminals, on land, at sea or in the sky.  Xicom designs and builds the highest-performing, compact, robust, and innovative Ka-band amplifiers and block upconverters in the world.

Flexibility for Multi-Band GaN Ka-band Block Upconverters in Incredibly Small Packages

Comtech Xicom now offers dual and multiple sub-band Ka-band block upconverters (BUCs) even in our smallest package. These rugged, full-featured, 5 lb (2.25 kg) Bobcat 32Ka BUCs provide impressive power density and high performance with 16W of linear power that mounts direct to the feed for transportable and lightweight VSAT terminals as well as land and maritime mobile systems. Important capabilities and options include WGS-compatibility, Open BMIP and Keyline operation.

New High-Linear Power GaN BUCs and SSPAs for LEO Ka-band Gateways

Xicom’s new high power GaN solid-state amplifier/block upconverters for Ka-band LEO gateways offer 65 W of linear power (-19dBc NPR) in a compact 38 lb package. These Puma 125Ka SSPA/BUCs combine the flexibility of single or multi-band Ka-band converter options with high linear power density and reliability in challenging environments for operation anywhere in the world.

Innovative High-Performing Dual-Amplifier GaN BUCs for LEO Ka-band Gateways

Comtech Xicom Technology has developed ground-breaking new compact and extremely capable GaN amplifier/block upconverters for Ka-band LEO gateways. These 28 lb Puma 72KaD dual-amplifier BUCs provide very high linear power density together with critical industry-leading phase noise performance to support a new generation of higher order modulation formats, all in a robust, reliable package that supports remote locations.

New Higher Linear Power GaN Airborne SSPA/BUC Certified for Global Connectivity

Xicom has developed and DO-160 certified the new Falcon 50Ka, a high-performing ARINC 791 Ka-band SSPA/BUC providing 25W linear power for in-flight connectivity in the same package as our 20W linear Falcon 40Ka. With thousands of Ku-band commercial aviation SSPA/BUCs already delivered, Xicom has just increased the options available to service providers and integrators with two certified Falcon Ka-band solutions from a high-volume manufacturer of the highest airborne quality and reliability.

The Highest Power Ka-band TWT Amplifier Available for GEO Earth Stations

Comtech Xicom Technology has ramped up the available output power of our Ka-Band product line with a new 650W peak power, TWTA for satellite gateway applications. This amplifier offers 30% more power than the previous high-power standard 500W Ka-band amplifier in the same package and features 215W of linear power at -19 dB Noise Power Ratio (NPR) for higher data rates and bandwidth efficiency in GEO satcom links.
