Green and Space Efficient SatCom

New Gallium Nitride (GaN) solid state technology amplifiers allow for significant power consumption and size savings vs. widely used Gallium Arsenide (GaS) technology amplifiers without any compromise in RF performances or reliability.

As an example of efficiency gains with GaN technology, SAGE SatCom’s 20 W Linear Ka-Band GaN-based Solid State BUCs consume 50% of the power and are 50% of the size of comparative performance 20W Linear Ka-Band GaS-based BUCs.   With power consumption being the main driver of BUC operating costs, the reduced power consumption of SAGE SatCom’s Ka-Band GaN-based BUCs provide OPEX savings of up to 50% vs. GaS-based BUCs. The greatly reduced size offered by SAGE SatCom’s GaN-based technology allows high power output Ka-Band BUCs to be used in portable solutions such Man-pack, Mobile, and SatCom-On-The-Move applications.
