    Qorvo's patented Spatium™ combining technology provides unprecedented Solid State Power Amplifier (SSPA) performance.

    An excellent alternative to Traveling Wave Tube Amplifiers (TWTA), the Spatium™ KA120W-2730& amplifier operates over the 27 - 30 GHz band achieving a saturated output power (Psat) of greater than 120 Watts at over 15% efficiency. The standard amplifier configuration includes DC Bias circuit and Flex Circuit interconnect.

    High performance in such a compact size and weight make it ideal for integration into Satcom BUC's and other Microwave subsystems

    Custom configurations and optimized screening conditions are available on request, consult factory.
