Sumitomo Electric Announces Ku-Band GaN HEMT for SATCOM Power Amplifier Offers Twice the Output Power of GaAs Devices SAN JOSE, Calif., June 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sumitomo Electric Device Innovations USA, Inc. (SEDU), a leading provider of advanced RF, wireless and optical communications solutions, has introduced its first Ku-Band GaN HEMT power amplifier (PA) for SATCOM applications. GaN technology allows significantly higher output powers—50W for GaN versus 30W for GaAs. Tuned for operation from 13.75 to 14.5 GHz, the new SGK1314-50A PA is internally matched for extendedKu SATCOM band to provide optimum power and gain in a 50-ohm system. "Our expertise in GaN technology offers new possibilities to SATCOM applications. The new GaN PAs provide the ability to simplify the design by reducing the number of required transistors," says John Wyatt, President of Sumitomo Electric Device Innovations USA. "For example, the 50W GaN HEMT replaces 2 GaAs FETs and also provides higher gain and efficiency." Key Features/Benefits *High-power GaN-HEMT reduces the number of PAs required in a system *Internally matched for the 13.75-14.5 GHz SATCOM band to provide optimum power and gain in a 50ohm system *High PAE for efficient operation and lower power consumption *High gain – 8dB typical To learn more, visit the Sumitomo Electric booth (2120) at the International Microwave Symposium 2013 (IMS) in Seattle from June 4-7, 2013.
