X-band Pulsed GaN High Power Amplifier (HPA)
- Compact pulsed X-band GaN SSPA
- 300W min peak pulsed power
- 2GHz Bandwidth
- Built-in phase control to optimise power combining
- Integrated power monitoring and protection
- Ethernet interface
The Diamond Microwave 300Watt GaN high-power amplifier (HPA) is based on the flagship 400W HPA model DM-X400-02. The HPA is a compact alternative to vacuum tube amplifiers (TWT) and offers typically >300W over a 2GHz bandwidth and pulse widths up to 100µs with duty cycles up to 15%.
An internal electronically adjusted phase offset can be applied to optimise power combining with alternative combiners.
This SSPA is a "smart" product, with control and monitoring functions accessed via an ethernet port. It incorporates monitoring of forward and reverse power in its output path, as well as temperature, duty cycle and operating current. All monitored parameters are addressable via the ethernet interface with self-protection activated if the SSPA detects that a default or user-set threshold is crossed for RF power, temperature, duty cycle or current. The SSPA will provide a visible alarm and alert the host system when a threshold is exceeded.
This compact SSPA is ideal for use in demanding defence, aerospace and communications applications. The design is flexible in layout and architecture and can be tailored to meet individual specifications.
