Mission Announces Highly Integrated GaN BUCs


Flatpack and Cube solid state block upconverters target new applications for multiple antenna configurations

Mission Microwave Technologies, a US manufacturer of solid state power amplifiers (SSPAs) and block up converters (BUCs) has announced general availability of compact GaN-based BUCs in Ku and Ka bands for use in lightweight and embedded platforms.

The 1inch thick Flatpack BUCs are available in 12 W Ka Band and 25 W Ku band versions. They are self-contained with forced air cooling, a full monitor and control Interface, and suitable for rugged environments with an IP-67 rating, according to the company.

The Ku Band Cube is a ruggedised 25 W BUC with a full suite of monitor and control functions available in serial or Ethernet formats. It draws less than 80 Watts of DC power to produce 16 W of linear power.

The Cube BUC is already deployed on customer terminals and will be on exhibit integrated into small antenna offerings from multiple vendors at Satellite 2018 in Washington, DC on March 13 -15 and also at Convergence India on March 7 -9 in New Delhi, India.
