CPI’s Beverly Microwave Division presents VSS3617 GaN solid state power amplifiers (SSPAs) operating in the S-band (2.7 – 2.9 GHz). These high efficiency, high power, compact amplifiers are easy to maintain, and are designed for use as air traffic control radar transmitters.
The SSPAs feature air cooled GaN transistors that are combined into 1.3 kW bricks, which are power-combined using radial combiners and waveguide combiners. The GaN transistors provide high gain, high efficiency, and excellent pulse fidelity resulting in exceptional AM/PM, phase-noise, and spectral regrowth performance.
