40W Ext. Ku-Band AC Power BUC

The “LIGHTWEIGHT” series Extended (13.75 – 14.5GHz) and Standard (14.0 – 14.5GHz) Ku-Band BUCs
are the next generation of the World’s Smallest feed-horn & boom-arm mountable BUCs in the
industry, weighing-in only at 5lbs (2.25kg) and handling output power of 40W (min) at the
Extended Ku-Band frequencies. We’ve picked the best of both worlds as we implemented the most mature,
proven efficient and reliable GaAs + GaN High Power Amplifiers with internal overdrive protection.
We’ve chosen an absolute and “No Corner Cutting” concept in our design. Its weatherproof
and robust Hyper-Light package is constructed with the most advanced mechanical precision
engineering in mind. We’ve taken absolutely no compromises during each of the design stages
using only the toughest aerospace grade aluminum based metal with the most efficient heat
disposal properties. Each unit is vigorously tested at our California facility according to our ATP
(acceptance testing procedure).
