Model number SSPA 2.0-6.0-100 is a high power, GaN solid state power amplifier that operates from 2.0 to 6.0 GHz. It is packaged in an enclosure that is optimized for high altitude operation along with high performance shock and vibration. Nominal output power is 100W typical. Typical small signal gain is 56 to 62 dB. The typical composite power added efficiency with a CW input is 28% at saturation. Input and Output VSWR is 2.0:1 typical. This SSPA can be blanked on and off in less than 10 uSec. Standard features include reverse polarity protection and output short and open circuit protection. There is an over-temperature and over-voltage fault in this module. This power amplifier module operates from -40 to +85ºC base plate temperature. It operates from an input voltage of +18 to +32 Vdc but the nominal applied voltage is +28 Vdc.
