Advantech Wireless Reaches the Summit™ and Releases 3.2kW Ku-Band Outdoor Modular Satellite GaN SSPA System

This company announces a new Solid State Power Amplifier (SSPA) System that is designed to be used as a direct replacement of older generation Klystrons or TWTs. These very high power, wide bandwidth, all outdoor ruggedized systems, allow operation over the entire Ku-band spectrum with multiple carriers, and outstanding linearity.

Advantech Wireless Technologies Inc, provider of satellite broadband communications solutions, announced the release of the new 3.2kW Ku-Band Outdoor Modular/Summit™ Solid State Power Amplifier (SSPA) System.  The new modular Summit™ systems have built-in redundancy with soft failure mode and are able to operate simultaneously on both polarizations or on a single polarization with double amount of power.

Cristi Damian, VP Business Development at Advantech Wireless Technologies Inc. said that this new design concept is in response to the higher power and wider bandwidth demand of traditional large teleports, while at the same time reducing the OPEX. This powerful modular system, with built in redundancy, is an ideal choice for large DTH teleport uplinks. Without using expensive filter combiners, which make future frequency planning changes very complex and challenging the system is ready now, without extra investment, for new higher modulation and error correcting codes, as specified in DVB-S2X, or higher data rates. Combined with a high gain antenna, this system can completely saturate all transponders on any satellite. It is a change that most teleports could benefit from, in order to stay competitive in an aggressive market. 

The design of the 3.2kW Ku-Band Outdoor SSPA is based on Advantech Wireless’Solid State Power Amplifiers and over 25 years of experience.
