TECHNOLOGY CHOICES

GaAs IBUC

IBUC models relying on GaAs FET amplifiers deliver solid performance in a cost-effective package that is suitably sized for a broad range of applications. GaAs devices are extremely linear with a well-defined power rating at the P1dB point. At most frequency bands, GaAs devices are  in ready supply from several sources. With their field-proven performance over the long term, GaAs IBUC2 and IBUCR models deliver optimal value for low and mid-power satellite terminals. The smaller, lighter package IBUC2 s are an excellent choice for the majority of Satcom terminals. 

GaN IBUC

Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology has more recently been deployed as devices have become available in frequency bands used in Satcom. The key advantage of GaN is its high RF density. That is, the device delivers greater amplification in a smaller package. This enables us to develop IBUCs with higher output power in a smaller enclosure. As a result, GaN-based IBUC Gs are a viable alternative to TWTAs. And the smaller profile IBUC2G model yields an advantage in many applications such as mobility. The power transfer curve of a GaN amplifier is not linear like that of a GaAs device. Therefore we have taken care in product design to compensate for the non-linearity. Although GaN amplifiers are rated at PSat, the important figure for comparison is the amount of output power required to achieve linear power. Terrasat IBUCG and IBUC 2G models are carefully designed for minimal back off, which translates into more usable power for your investment.
