DC Powered BUCs

Industry-Leading GaN Bobcat Block Upconverters (BUCs)

Designed for compact portable terminals needing high power from very small packages operating in challenging environments, Bobcat’s are high-performance, DC-powered, feed-mount outdoor BUCs with outsized features including extensive data logging, easy-to-use web-based GUI, ethernet SNMP (v1 or v3), and interchangeability between X, Ku and Ka-bands. 

From the Bobcat 64Ku in 4.5 lbs. on up, these BUCs provide high linear power density for the most demanding pack-up satcom terminal applications.


The new product line includes the Bobcat 50X (25 Watt linear X-band); the Bobcat 64Ku (32 Watt linear Ku-band); and the Bobcat 32Ka (16 Watt linear Ka-band BUC), each in about 110 cu in and weighing 4 to 5 lbs. Even in this small package you don’t have to give up on features. The 5-pound Bobcats still have extensive attenuation control and calibration capability, data logging and web GUI availability, and security features such as the optional SNMP v3 implementation.
