Model number SSPA 27.0-31.0-20 is a high power, GaN solid state power amplifier that operates from 27 to 31 GHz. It is packaged in an enclosure that is optimized for high shock and vibration requirements. Nominal output power is 20W typical. Typical power gain is 43 dB minimum. Input and output VSWR is 2.0:1 maximum. This SSPA can be blanked on and off in less than 10.0 uSec. OIP3 is 47 dBm minimum. This SSPA operates from a +28Vdc power supply. Standard features include reverse polarity protection and output short and open circuit protection. It operates from -40 to +70ºC base plate temperature. There is also an over-temperature shut down feature to protect the amplifier. This high power SSPA can be employed in any system that requires high power at Ka-band. The housing volume is approximately 4.0 x 5.0 x 2.0”. DC and logic connections are accessible via feed through pins. The RF input connector is an SMA female and the RF output connector is WR-28 waveguide.
