50W Ext. Ku-Band BUC

The “LIGHTWEIGHT” series Extended (13.75 – 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 3.5lbs (1.6kg) and handling output power of 50W PSAT (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).
