The TA1109 is a small form factor, lightweight circuit card amplifier that has been designed to be integrated into existing CubeSat and NanoSat satellite systems.

Operating from 2000 to 2500 MHz, the TA1109 is compatible with most lower S-Band transmitters. 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 TA1109 is perfect for applications where small size and light weight is critical.

With a voltage input range of +9 to +14 VDC, the TA1109 is versatile enough to operate on a range of available voltage buses typically found on a CubeSat chassis.
