The allocated frequency range is 10.9GHz to 17GHz. One of the most common satellite constellations, Ku-band satellites provide video, audio, and data services for both consumers and businesses.
The majority of Ku-band VSATs are primarily GEO-based systems.
The global Ku – K band MMIC amplifier market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
Second-generation Ku-band and Ka-band PA MMICs are made available by Nxbeam. In order to produce the next generation of wireless goods, Nx Beam, a fabless semiconductor business, has created Ku-band and Ka-band monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) power amplifiers using gallium nitride (GaN).
The new MMICs provide consumers exceptional performance in terms of output power, gain, and efficiency in a tiny footprint, making them the perfect choice for satellite communication terminals. At the moment, these goods can be found in die form. Packaged versions will be offered in this year’s third quarter.
The NPA1020-DE from Nxbeam operates in the Ku-band between 12.5 and 14.5 GHz and has 15 watts of saturated output power.Average power added efficiency (PAE) is 40%, and linear gain is 25 dB.
This component can be biased up to 28 volts, where a higher saturation output power can be obtained, even though it is designed for 24 Volt operation.Nxbeam has unveiled three new MMICs for the Ka-band. The NPA2002-DE has a frequency range of 27 to 30 GHz, an average saturated output power of 35 watts, a linear gain of 27.5 dB, and a PAGE of 27%.
