    Triad Ships S-Band to X-Band Frequency Translating CubeSat/NanoSat Amplifier

Triad Ships S-Band to X-Band Frequency Translating CubeSat/NanoSat Amplifier

The TFTA1003 is a small form factor, lightweight circuit card amplifier that has been designed to be integrated into existing CubeSat and NanoSat satellite systems.

Up-converting from S-Band in order to communicate with existing X-Band Systems, the TFTA1003 can be easily integrated into existing systems with minimal equipment changes. This amplifier also offers up to 4W of output power to ensure proper communication while operating in Low Earth orbit (LEO).

Smaller than a credit card and weighing in at less than a half an ounce, the TFTA1003 is perfect for applications where small size and light weight is critical.

With a voltage input range of +10 to +14 VDC, the TFTA1003 is versatile enough to operate on a range of available voltage buses typically found on a CubeSat chassis.

    New High-Efficiency Wide Band BDA Featuring Full Band Automatic Tx/Rx Switching

New High-Efficiency Wide Band BDA Featuring Full Band Automatic Tx/Rx Switching

Triad introduces the TTRM1210, a wideband GaN BDA that operates from 30 MHz to 2700 MHz, and produces over 8W of peak Tx power. One of the smallest BDAs in the industry measuring only 3.25 x 2.12 x 0.53 inches, this feature rich BDA is also one of the most efficient. While producing 8W of RF power, it only consumes 24W of DC power. It also produces over 2W of linear 16 QAM power with < 9% EVM. This BDA's small size and high efficiency make it ideal for SWaP friendly commercial and military software defined radio (SDR) applications. In order to be compatible with a wide variety of existing platforms, the TTRM1210 offers the option of Automatic Tx/Rx switching across its entire operating frequency band, as well as a wide DC input range of +11 to +28 VDC. Regardless of the selected option, switching between Tx and Rx takes less than 1 µsec. Additionally, base plate temperature can be monitored via an analog temperature sensor output pin on the DC/Control connector. Additional information on this BDA can be found here: TTRM1210
