MPD Fully Functioning During the Covid-19 Emergency

We just thought we’d let all of you know that it is business as usual at Octagon Communications and MPD. All necessary precautions have been taken, and, as several of our staffers already work remotely, the office is open for business until we are told otherwise.

The July issue of MPD will arrive on schedule, and of course our website and the digital edition will continue to be available.

Feel free to contact any of us with questions or concerns!

We hope that you and your families are safe and healthy.

High Power, Broadband, Solid State Power Amplifier

Model SSPA 2.0-6.0-250 solid state power amplifier delivers high power over greater than an octave bandwidth, 2.0 to 6.0 GHz. Packaged in an enclosure optimized for high altitude operation and strengthened for high performance shock and vibration environments, it provides a nominal output power of 250W and attains 300W of saturated power. This broadband GaN SSPA is designed to be employed in systems where high power and medium efficiency and linearity are required across a large bandwidth. It’s designed and tested to withstand MIL-STD-810 shock and vibration requirements. The nominal composite CW power efficiency is approximately 20 to 25% at room temperature. Typical small signal gain is 70 dB and standard features include reverse polarity protection, over-temperature protection, and over/under voltage protection. Input and output VSWR is specified at 2.0:1 maximum and a discrete blanking control line is included with a 10 uSec maximum turn on/off time.
