Aethercomm Model Number SSPA 27.0-31.0-20 is a high power, KA band Gallium Nitride (GaN) solid state power amplifier that operates from 27-31 GHz. The GaN solid state power amplifier is packaged in an enclosure that is optimized for high shock and vibration requirements. Nominal output power is 20 watts typical. Typical power gain is 43 dB minimum. Input and output VSWR is 2.0:1 maximum.
This GaN solid state power amplifier can be blanked on and off in less than 10.0 uSec. OIP3 is 47 dBm minimum. This SSPA operates from a +28 Vdc power supply. Standard features include reverse polarity protection and output short and open circuit protection. This GaN solid state power amplifier module operates from -40°C to +70°C base plate temperature. There is also an over-temperature shut down feature to protect the amplifier. This high power SSPA can be employed in any system that requires high power at Ka band. The housing volume is approximately 4.0″” (W) X 5.0″” (l) X 2.0″” (H). DC and logic connections are accessible via feed through pins. The RF input connector is an SMA female. The RF output connector is WR-28 waveguide. Typical transmit test data appears below at room temperature. The maximum weight is 2.5 lbs. For mounting and heat sink instructions, further test data, or operation and logic pin out requirements specific to this KA band GaN amplifier, please contact the factory.
