TMD Technologies Introduces X-band SSPA for Radar

40 or 50V DC Supply, Typical Output Power 400W

The TMD Technologies Division of Communications & Power Industries (CPI) has added a new solid-state power amplifier (SSPA) to its range of innovative products for EW and radar applications.

Compact and lightweight, the PTS10224 SSPA operates in the 8.5-9.6GHz X-band, with a typical high power of 400W (greater than 300W minimum) at up to 15% duty cycle. Two models are available, with slightly different performances: one operating from a 40V DC supply; the other from a 50V DC supply, which latter version offers the best overall efficiency and output power – typically in excess of 400W. At 40V operation, the power added efficiency (PAE) typically exceeds 20%.

The excellent power performance and compact, lightweight construction of the PTS10224 SSPA have been achieved by employing gallium nitride (GaN) high-power transistors. The design provides the benefit of a power-to-volume ratio that is one of the highest in the market. The device weighs just 1.5kg and measures just 197x150x30 mm, excluding connectors. The operating temperature range extends from 0-60°C. These features make it ideal for land, sea and airborne radar applications. The new SSPA is currently in production for several customers worldwide.

Already in production for several users worldwide, the PTS10224 SSPA employs state-of-the-art GaN technology. (CPI/TMD)
