Solid State Power Amplifier (SSPA)

RUAG Space is developing a SSPA product line. The first product will be a Ka band SSPA with a saturation output power of 40 W intended for satellite panel mounting. The product line utilizes GaN technology for excellent efficiency, linearity and output power. A 10 W version is also in the roadmap intended for feeder mount applications....

The SSPA have a modular approach allowing easy adaptation to 10W, 20W or 40W saturation power. The first generation will reach a noise power ratio of 15 dBc with an efficiency of up to 27% at 3 dB output back off.
