AmKom 50W Extended Ku-Band BUC
Amkom Design Group Inc. was established in 2016 with focus on SATCOM and VSAT markets. The management and engineering teams are both young and experienced with bright minds and are equipped with exceptional top skill level.
Our current Ku-Band BUC products are reaching world class results with exceptional stability, reliability, linearity and efficiency. We've spent several years designing the only "Perfect BUC" after evaluating our competitors
We have achieved our goal; they are officially unparalleled when compared to others. Each unit's weatherproof and robust Hyper-Light package is constructed with the most advanced mechanical, aerodynamic, and precision engineering in mind taking the MTBF to the next level of at least 15 years during normal operation.
As a leader in this tight niche market we currently concentrate on Ku-band and Ka-band Block Up Converters (BUCs, SSPB) and amplifiers (SSPAs). Our main commercial off the shelf (COTs) products include, but not limited to the Extended (13.75 – 14.5GHz) frequency and Low (12.75 – 13.25 GHz) Ku-Band Block Up Converters (BUCs)
Vibration friendly implementation which equal to microphonic-less operation can withstand high winds, bumps on the road, or impact while still transmitting a stable, clean, microphonic-free signal within its specified temperature range up to +70C. The Ku-Band BUCs come with the following available output powers: 16W 20W 25W 30W 40W, 60W, 80W, 100W. We’ve chosen the best of both worlds as we implemented the most mature, proven efficient and reliable GaAs + GaN High Power Amplifiers with added internal overdrive protection. In other words, we did not re-invent the wheel, we just made it better!
The “LIGHTWEIGHT” series Extended (13.75 - 14.5GHz) Ku-Band BUCs are the next generation of the World’s Smallest feed-horn & boom-arm mountable BUCs in the industry, weighing-in only at 3.5lbs (1.6kg) and handling output power of 50W PSAT (min) at the Extended Ku-Band frequencies. We’ve picked the best of both worlds as we implemented the most mature, proven efficient and reliable GaAs + GaN High Power Amplifiers with internal overdrive protection. We’ve chosen an absolute and “No Corner Cutting” concept in our design. Its weatherproof and robust Hyper-Light package is constructed with the most advanced mechanical precision engineering in mind. We’ve taken absolutely no compromises during each of the design stages using only the toughest aerospace grade aluminum based metal with the most efficient heat disposal properties. Each unit is vigorously tested at our California facility according to our ATP (acceptance testing procedure)
