80W Ext. Ku-Band BUC

The P for “PHANTOM” series Extended (13.75 – 14.5GHz) and Standard (14.0 – 14.5GHz) Ku-
Band BUCs are the next generation of the World’s Most efficient and compact size BUCs in the
industry, weighing only 9.2lbs (4.2kg) and handling output power of 80W (min) at the 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 and
precise linearization technique. 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 use 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).
