Wavestream Unveils New C-band Power Amplifier
Wavestream has released the PowerStream 757C-O C-band solid-state power amplifier for broadcast satellite communications systems, the company announced June 15.
The new amplifier, based on Wavestream’s next-generation Spatial Power Advantage technology, is a complementary product to Wavestream’s indoor version of the product. PowerStream 757C-O aims to address emerging requirements for high-power outdoor C-band solid state amplifiers and block upconverters for the broadcast market.
The PowerStream 757C-o will be available in the third quarter of 2010.
“Our new outdoor, antenna-mount product provides the same RF characteristics, efficiency and field-proven reliability as our indoor units. The added bonus is an outdoor configuration reduces the indoor space requirements and higher energy consumption costs that are often associated with housing and cooling traditional indoor amplifier products,” Wavestream President and CEO Cliff Cooke said in a statement.
