Amplifier manufacturers have long compared the advantages and disadvantages of solid state power amplifiers (SSPAs) and traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs). Every few years, there is typically a technology advance that gives a slight advantage to one technology over the other. This paper shows how the modular design of SSPAs can provide dramatically higher levels of system reliability than TWTAs.
