A New Generation Of GaN-Based SSPAs For Satellite Communication By C. Damian, VP product line management and business development, and D. Gelerman, president and CEO, Advantech Wireless Inc.
The introduction of gallium nitride high electron mobility transistors (GaN HEMT) in early 2000 has left an undeniable mark on the entire satellite communication landscape. It is now possible for the first time since the introduction of solid state microwave technology to design and manufacture power amplifiers that exceed by several orders of magnitude the reliability, linearity, power density, and energy efficiency of all existing technologies, including GaAs, LDMOS, or TWT.
Spotlight On Satellite 2014
SATELLITE 2014 is the largest gathering of all markets in satellite-enabled communications.
