GaN high density Power amplifiers used by Advantech Wireless Broadband


The Canada based wireless broadband service provider Advantech Advanced Microwave Technologies Inc (Advantech Wireless Broadband) has launched out solid-state power amplifiers (SSPAs) and block-upconverters (BUCs or SSPBs). These new range of power amplifiers are light in weight and of compact size and uses gallium nitride technology.
The new releases of Advantech G series are 50W, 100W and 250W.These are the world’s smallest Ku-band devices. These G series have a much increased MTBF (mean time between failures) while compared with gallium arsenide devices which is more than 80,000 hours. Various parameters such as temperature and voltages are the maximum for these core devices.
According to Chief operating officer (CEO) of Advantech Wireless Broadband, “After much research and development, we can now say that we have harnessed the power of this technology and can deliver the benefits to our customers”.

Advantech is a leader in manufacturing and designing network solutions, broadcast solutions and broadband. They also design backhaul requirements needed for terrestrial wireless communications and satellite communications. Some of the innovative products of Advantech are block-up converters, satellite modems, mobile antenna systems, PDH, Ethernet and SONET radios
