Ka-band GaN-based SSPA for flexible payloads and multicarrier operation for 5G satellite concept

Project description

A novel high-power, high-frequency amplifier supports 5G satellite multicarrier operation

With burgeoning data traffic and applications requiring extremely high speed, accuracy, reliability and security, traditional satellites are struggling to keep up. The newer high-throughput satellites are broadening the frequency bands they use to accommodate a large number of users and communication volumes, like putting more lanes on the highway. This includes moving up the spectrum to include the Ka band (26.5–40 GHz) and the Q/V bands (33–75 GHz). Conventional solid-state power amplifiers (SSPA) were not able to accommodate the demand for high power at high frequencies. The EU-funded FLEXGAN project is paving the way to a low-cost, high-power and efficient Ka-band SSPA to support on-board 5G satellite applications.
