Aethercomm’s Model Number SSPA 2.0-6.0-250 solid state power amplifier that delivers high power over greater than an octave bandwidth, 2.0 to 6.0 GHz. Packaged in an enclosure optimized for high altitude operation and strengthened for high performance shock and vibration environments, it provides a nominal output power of 250 watts and attains 300 watts of saturated power. This broadband GaN SSPA is designed to be employed in systems where high power and medium efficiency and linearity are required across a large bandwidth. This broadband high power amplifier is designed and tested to withstand MIL-STD-810 shock and vibration requirements.The nominal composite CW power efficiency is approximately 20-25% at room temperature. Typical small signal gain is 70 dB and standard features include reverse polarity protection, over-temperature protection, and over/under voltage protection. Input and output VSWR is specified at 2.0:1 maximum and a discrete blanking control line is included with a 10 uSec maximum turn on/off time. Performance is specified from -40°C to +85°C base plate temperature. The SSPA 2.0-6.0-250 is approximately 8.0″ X 13.5″ X 3.0″ and weighs ~15 lbs. DC and logic connections are accessible via Combo-D connectors. The RF input connector is an SMA female and the RF output connector is a type N female. Typical transmit test data appears on page two of this data sheet at room temperature.
