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 Ku 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.
