Teledyne Microwave Solutions offers a complete suite of ITAR-Free products for Ka-Band systems specifically developed for both legacy and new designs. The up and down converters electronically switch between commercial and military Ka-/K-Bands. By combining these converters with the standard SSPA, a full transceiver can be configured to operate over the 29 to 31 GHz transmit band and the 19.2 to 21.2 GHz receive band with just three hermetically sealed modules.
Ka-Band ITAR-FREE Suite
Teledyne Microwave Solutions offers a complete suite of ITAR-FREE products for Ka-Band systems that have been specifically developed for both legacy and new designs. Both up & down converters have the ability to electronically switch between the commercial and military Ka/K Bands. Each converter has a number of functions which enable easy integration into legacy and new systems. These include either internal or external reference at both 10 & 50MHz along with blanking & attenuation control. By combining these converters with our standard SSPA, a full transceiver can be configured to operate over the 29-31 transmit band and the 19.2-21.2 GHz receive band with just 3 hermetically sealed modules.
Our Standard SSPA offers 16W P1 or 8W linear output power over the full 29-31GHz frequency range. The unit also includes extensive gain control and forward power monitoring. An internal BIT circuit monitors current, thermal and other critical parameters. TMS also offers a K-band (19.2-21.2GHz) LNA with an industry-leading 1.3 dB noise figure over the full 2 GHz bandwidth. With a total weight of 0.5 lbs and small size, the unit is ideal for today’s integrated, light weight Ka-Band terminals.
For the past 40 years TMS has always offered a wide range of microwave modules specifically designed to meet demanding size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) applications for Land, Air and Marine markets. Using unique chip and wire techniques TMS offers extremely rugged and reliable products suitable for the most demanding platforms. With extensive functionality built in, TMS is able to offer these standard products that work with any modem. Each unit is designed to provide over 200 different configurations, many of which are auto-sensing. All these options are available from a single standard product, enabling last-minute configurations at the factory and thus shorter delivery times.
