A new line of solid state power amplifiers and block up converters that are said to offer the highest power density and smallest form factor in the industry is on show on the Advantech stand.
Designed for mobile and fixed communication terminals, the products support digital satellite news gathering which facilitates the sharing of global events in real time from remote locations via ultra-high definition TV transmission.
According to the company, the new Taurus line of products was specifically designed for reliability, efficiency and high performance for mobile satcom applications including TV broadcasting and disaster recovery communications which require ever higher data throughput capabilities. The new DVB-S2X satellite digital broadcasting standard, Advantech notes, allows for higher modulation rates which require more RF power. Ku-band solutions are, it says, ideally suited for this and with the potential migration of C-band spectrum into the 5G domain, the efficient bandwidth utilization of the Ku-band products will be particularly important for performance.
