[Satellite TODAY 08-09-13] Advantech Wireless, a global designer and manufacturer of satellite, radio frequency equipment and microwave systems, has received new orders in excess of $1 million to supply 600W and 1.2kW Ku-band SapphireBlu Series of UltraLinear GaN based High Power Amplifiers (HPA) for Direct-to-Home (DTH) projects from a major customer in Asia.
From one antenna, one HPA is able to simultaneously transmit to all transponders of a specific satellite, regular or extended bands with high efficiency and low intermod distortions. These new systems are DVB S2 enabled and can save 8 to 15 dB of power compared to indoor Klystrons or linearized traveling wave tubes.
“These new modular architecture replaces expensive redundancy schemes; there is no need for expensive shelters. Our customers realize great savings in energy cost, CAPEX and OPEX,” stated Cristi Damian, vice president business development at Advantech Wireless.
