Comtech Telecommunications Corp.’s Xicom Technology Division Expands GaN SSPA Product Line

September 14, 2017Comtech Telecommunications Corp.’s Santa
Clara, California-based subsidiary, Comtech Xicom Technology, Inc.,
which is part of Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment, announced today
a series of high-power GaN SSPAs to fill out the top end of its
industry-leading SSPA product line. The new compact and rugged
amplifiers are significantly more efficient than competing SSPAs making
them ideal for transportable and mobile applications where power draw

For Ku-band customers, the new XTLIN-200K covers 13.75 to 14.5 GHz
Ku-band with a minimum of 200W of linear power. The unit is in a
compact, low profile outdoor package that is ideally suited for
transportable applications. The new XTLIN-100K also covers 13.75 to 14.5
GHz, with a minimum of 100W of linear power, and is in the same package
size as its industry-leading 100W Linear X-band unit, allowing easy
conversion from X-band to Ku-band.

At X-band, the new XTLIN-200X further extends Comtech Xicom’s tactical
X-band product line, offering a minimum of 200W of linear power. The
compact package size is identical to that of the new 200W Ku-band
amplifier. Comtech Xicom already had industry-leading high efficiency
X-band GaN products in certified terminals at linear powers of 20W, 50W
and 100W – and now the product line extends to 200W.

“Comtech Xicom is working with customers to deploy X-band GaN SSPAs
across a broad spectrum of power levels in small-to-medium sized
terminals for tactical communications. We offer linear powers from 20
Watts to 200 Watts in rugged compact packages,” commented Mark
Schmeichel, Senior Vice President, and General Manager for Comtech
Xicom. “The new XTSLIN-200X compares favorably in size, weight, and
especially power consumption to available products at this power level,
and the common package size with the new Ku-band products is ideal for
tactical military customers that want to optimize satellite
availability. We are looking forward to the growth of this market as
on-orbit X-band capacity grows dramatically.”

Schmeichel added, “The new Ku-band products are ideal for both
Commercial and Military SATCOM applications, with very high efficiency
that’s optimal for high data rate transportable applications. The new
XTSLIN-200K and XTSLIN-100K compare favorably in size, weight and power
consumption to available products at similar output power levels while
being built to withstand the toughest environments.”

Comtech Xicom Technology, Inc., a world leader in high-power amplifiers,
manufactures a wide variety of tube-based and solid-state power
amplifiers for military and commercial satellite uplink applications.
The product range encompasses power levels from 8 W to 3 kW, with
frequency coverage in sub-bands within the 2 GHz to 45 GHz spectrum.
Amplifiers are available for fixed and ground-based, ship-board, and
airborne mobile applications. Please visit
