Aim of Sale

As more and more satellites are meeting the end of their operational lifespan, demand for new microwave communication satellites has recently been growing. While transmitter devices in these communication satellites have traditionally utilized gallium arsenide (GaAs) amplifiers, gallium nitride (GaN) HEMT amplifiers offer higher efficiency, as well as high-filed electron velocity and high breakdown fields. These characteristics help make transmitter devices smaller, lighter and more durable.
