DC-powered Block Up Converters

New Industry-Leading GaN Products

Over the last 5 years, Comtech Xicom has developed a GaN-based SSPA product line that offers industry-leading SWaP and efficiency for demanding applications and tough environments. Xicom’s ODU SSPA designs will meet your most demanding requirements for size, weight and reliability. New products based on our building block approach cross power levels and frequency bands, with additional products planned for release throughout the year. From 10 to 250 linear watts and from X-band to Ka-band, these products have easily interchangeable packages across frequency bands and provide features such as power saving modes, Ethernet interfaces with SNMP V1/V2/V3, and built-in redundancy control.

Benefits of GaN

As GaN processes have developed and matured, higher output power, greater reliability, and lower cost have made it an even clearer choice. Process revisions now have high power devices available for frequencies up through Q/V-band. Benefits include:

  • High Linearity
  • High Power 
  • High Efficiency 
  • High Reliability 
  • Small Package 
  • Light Weight

Xicom's block up-converters/amplifiers were specifically designed for rugged, outdoor, mobile environments. The product line includes a new 25 Watt linear X-band; 32 Watt linear Ku-band and 16 Watt linear Ka-band BUC weighing in at only 5.5 lbs.

Xicom revolutionized the mobile SATCOM market with some of the smallest and lightest feature-rich BUCs available. These new antenna-mount BUCs are designed to meet the most demanding requirements for size, weight and high reliability.
