ARTICLE: BUC and SSPA SWaP Considerations for Communications on the Move

Norsat’s article, “BUC and SSPA SWaP Considerations for Communications on the Move”, was featured in the June 2017 issue of Microwave Product Digest. Written by Norsat’s Product Manager, Daniel Lopez, this article explores design considerations in both mechanical and RF architecture in Block Upconverters (BUCs) and Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPAs). The article discusses questions such as:

    • Why is Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) so crticial in Communications on the Move (COTM) systems?
    • How does a successful design minimize the form factor, reduce weight, and achieve high power output?
    • What design elements impact what is considered a good versus poor SWaP balance in BUCs and SSPAs?
    • In actual COTM applications, how do these principles work out in real life?

The author discusses these questions in much detail in Norsat’s article, “BUC and SSPA SWaP Considerations for Communications on the Move”. To read the full article and find answers to these questions, please click here.
