Four reasons to choose GaN SSPAs over TWTAs for power amplification

Traveling-wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs) have traditionally been used in high-power radar systems for meteorology, air traffic control, defense, and maritime services. But now, there is a new technology to consider: solid-state power amplifiers (SSPAs). Gallium Nitride (GaN)-based microwave SSPAs that handle higher power densities, operate effectively at elevated temperatures, and can drive TWTs in high-power radar systems.



As we conclude our 20th-anniversary celebration, it's hard to believe how far we've come in the past twenty years. Over the years we’ve made many bold moves that have led ERZIA to be one of the industry’s most innovative and respected MW& RF leaders. As we embark upon a new year, we would like to share the 2023 highlights we are most proud of and the accomplishments that set us up for success in 2024 and beyond.

Understanding the Conversion Loss and Gain of a Mixer

RF and Microwave Mixers play a crucial role in altering signal frequencies within radio frequency (RF) and microwave communication systems. They are essential in various applications, including signal modulation, RF signal demodulation, and frequency conversion in up/down converters.

To optimize system performance, it’s important to understand their key performance metrics and why they matter. Among those are conversion loss and conversion gain.

An Examination of ERZIA’s GaN-Based Microwave Solid-State Power Amplifiers in X-Band

Operating within the 8.0–12.0 GHz frequency range, X-Band radar systems have proved vital across various industries, including meteorology, air traffic control, defense, and maritime services. Their exceptional resolution and accuracy make them indispensable in our technology-driven world.

Air traffic control uses X-Band radars for real-time tracking of airborne traffic, while in maritime services, these radars aid in navigation and collision avoidance.
