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 defence and communications applications. Our amplifiers 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.

Our amplifiers are so compact that you can fit two on a US Dollar bill. They are significantly smaller than TWT amplifiers and achieve pulsed power output levels of up to 150W with the potential for pulsed outputs up to 1kW:

  • S/C-band (2 – 6 GHz) 80W GaN power amplifier
  • X-band 100W GaN power amplifier
  • Ku-band GaN power amplifier

Diamond Microwave also has substantial experience in the development of diamond as a semiconductor and holds several patents related to diamond transistor structures. The company continues to carry out research into diamond transistor technology.
