The most significant advantage of SSPA is that it is more robust, durable, and less expensive than its traveling-wave-tube amplifier (TWTA) equivalent.
The SSPAs manufactured by Raditek are state-of-the-art devices that are guaranteed hassle-free performance.
Raditek engineers have in-depth knowledge and experience which helps them in the manufacture of complex electronic communication components, devices, gadgets, and equipment.
As a result, our solid-state power amplifiers are renowned for their dependability and accuracy in performance. Hence these are extensively used in precision equipment, applications, and systems like satellite communication, radars, deep space communications, and many other Satcom applications.
Raditek’s latest SSPA is made using the Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) or Gallium Nitrate (GaN) based transistors and basically, it is the transistors that carry out the bulk of the amplification work.
The modular architecture of our solid-state power amplifiers makes them fail-safe circuitry that offers superior linearity and output strength.
SSPAs operate with a DC voltage input range of +12 to +15 VDC; therefore they can be powered by a wide range of power supply sources. There is no such feature in TWTAs, which operate on high voltage.
Furthermore, Raditek SSPA’s typically incorporates a thermal shut-down/restart mechanism that protects it from heat-related damage, which power amplifiers are prone to.
