25W Ku-Band Transceiver Takes Off For Commercial Airborne Applications
TRAK Microwave

The company’s 25W Ku-Band High Power Transceiver (HPT) functions as a complete airborne Satcom solution, integrating the necessary GaN SSPA, upconverters, downconverters, and digital control technology. Described as a highly modular yet easily maintained system, it features multiple Built-in-Test (BIT) functions and SSPA protection against high VSWR loads. For applications that require additional commercial air transport use assurance, an optional vibration insensitive OCXO installed on a vibration isolation platform is available. The HPT transmits at frequencies from 13.75 GHz to 14.5 GHz from an IF frequency of 950 MHz to 1700 MHz with a gain variation of less than 1.0 dB over any 36 MHz band. It also provides the frequency block down conversion from 10.7 GHz to 11.7 GHz to the low band IF of 950 MHz to 1,950 MHz or from 11.7 GHz to 12.75 GHz to the high band IF of 1100-2150 MHz. The receive bands are selectable with commands over the Ethernet bus. A datasheet is available at http://www.trak.com/files/products/KU-Band-25-W-High-Power-Transceiver.pdf
