Triad RF ships the TTRM1008, a C-Band bi-directional amplifier operating from 4.4 to 5.0 GHz. The unit produces 5 Watts of 64 QAM power and over 25 Watts of QPSK power. The unit has manual switching between TX and RX modes with switching times < 1 usec. Switching and timing functions are controlled by a complex programmable logic device (CPLD), a first for Triad. Other functions such as alarms and LED signals are also controlled by the CPLD. The unit is also one of the smallest in the industry, measuring 5.3(L) x 3.7(W) x 0.57(H) inches. Production of the TTRM1008 is expected in the first quarter of 2014. A 5.8 GHz version will also follow in early 2014.
