Accurate Noise Figure Measurement in ERZIA K/Ka-Band Low Noise Amplifiers for Satcom Applications

The satellite communications industry is in constant evolution, always looking for new technologies and approaches to handle the exponentially increasing traffic demand. Driven by this continuous objective, higher RF and Microwave frequency bands have been gradually introduced, initially for networks in relatively low frequencies, such as L-Band, C-Band or X-Band, then for higher frequencies like Ku-Band which is widely used nowadays. The higher the frequency, the wider the channels, so bigger data capacity is required, thus the interest in exploiting the K/Ka-Bands and Q/V Bands.

ERZIA COTS amplifier goes to space inside NASA’s Cubesat

The traditional approach to delivering hardware to be installed in satellites and space probes is driven by extensive design, analysis, and testing phases, with long-term delivery times and budgets, which can be tens or hundreds of times bigger than their equivalent for commercial and terrestrial applications. These extensive deliveries and larger budgets are justified by the expectation of the hardware to survive and operate in the extremes of the space environment, without any possibility of reparation or replacement.
