GaN Solid-State Power Amplifiers (SSPA)

Compact Microwave Power

Diamond Microwave specialises in compact, GaN-based solid-state power amplifiers (SSPA) customised for use in demanding high-reliability radar and communications applications. These high-power amplifiers (HPA) offer state-of-the-art power performance coupled with a power-to-volume ratio believed to be amongst the highest in the industry for such products.

A comprehensive product line is offered with pulsed output powers up to 1kW in X-band. A common platform is adopted for these products with essentially two form factors. The DM-X400-02 outline is used for “smart” amplifiers (with ethernet control and monitoring) up to 500W and the DM-X100-01 outline is used for more compact solutions with RS232 comms. All of our products can be customised to meet alternative mechanical or electrical interfaces.

Diamond Microwave also has substantial experience in the development of CVD diamond as a semiconductor and holds patents related to diamond transistor structures.
