RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. -- September 12, 2013

Teledyne Paradise Datacom, a division of Teledyne Microwave Solutions,
announced today that it now has available for orders a new compact, outdoor
500 watt Ka-band traveling wave tube amplifier (TWTA) produced with a fully
vertically-integrated manufacturing process. The product is being exhibited
this week by the company at IBC 2013 in Booth 1.B24 in Hall Number 1.

Powered by Teledyne’s MEC-5530 500 watt traveling wave tube, the new TWTA
shares the same architectural platform with the company’s popular Compact
Outdoor SSPA (solid state power amplifier). In addition to the tube, the
TWTA’s linearizer, power supply, L-band BUC (block up converter), and all
remaining components were produced internally using the broad R&D and
manufacturing capabilities of Teledyne Microwave Solutions (TMS).

“This is certainly an exciting milestone for Teledyne Microwave Solutions, its
customers, and Ka-band operators worldwide,” said Russell Shaller, President
of the Teledyne Microwave Solutions Group. “This product complements our
existing portfolio of GaN based ground, mobile, and airborne satellite
communication amplifiers. Using Teledyne's field-proven TWT technology,
Teledyne Paradise Datacom brings to market a production-ready 500 watt Ka-band
TWTA to raise new standards for quality, performance, and reliability in the
marketplace.”

The benefits of vertically-integrated manufacturing for complex technology
solutions like a high power TWTA can include economies of scale, stable
supplies of key components, higher quality control, better integration and
control of production processes and delivery timelines, and more effective R&D
planning and innovation.

Formed from the consolidation of seven leading microwave companies, TMS offers
commercial and military grade solid state and TWT amplifiers and terminals
from 4 watts to over 500 watts. By using a highly efficient cooling system and
modular construction, TMS has reduced manufacturing costs while improving
system reliability. Able to deliver over 175 watts of linear power at the RF
output flange, this compact outdoor TWTA is shipping in two frequency ranges:
27.0 – 30.0 GHz or 30.0 – 31.0 GHz. All of the internal components are easily
accessible and the cooling system can be maintained without removing the cover
of the amplifier, resulting in a very low MTTR.

Available options include an internal L-band BUC with onboard local oscillator
and a high performance filter for harmonic rejection of -60dBc. Teledyne
Paradise Datacom is also exhibiting at IBC two of its other flagship products,
the industry’s fully software defined modem, Q-Flex™, and the modular and
field-expandable PowerMAX SSPA.
