Toronto, Canada – July 25, 2023 – Baylin Technologies Inc. (“Baylin” or the “Company”) (TSX:BYL) is pleased to announce that its Advantech subsidiary has launched a new family of Ka-band Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPA). Badged as our K-2 Series, Advantech’s new line of Ka-band SSPAs and SSPBs are based on a novel, ground-up design that employs the latest in Gallium Nitride (GaN) device technology to deliver the highest RF performance of any amplifier in its class.
The K-2 is based on the recently launched Genesis architecture and represents another advancement in high-performance RF products from Advantech for the satellite communications industry. Initially released in 40W and 80W variants, higher power products are on the near-term roadmap.
The Ka-band is the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum that covers frequencies between 26.5 to 40 gigahertz (GHz) with wavelengths ranging from 1 centimeter down to 7.5 millimeters. In satellite communications, the Ka-band allows for higher bandwidth communications and is currently used in GEO, LEO and MEO applications.
“The Ka-band SSPA is designed to serve as a solid-state alternative to competing high-power amplifier technologies typically used in gateway earth stations.”, stated John Restivo, President of Advantech Wireless Technologies.
Leighton Carroll, Baylin CEO, is pleased Advantech has added this new capability to its product line and closed a gap in its Ka-band communication capabilities. “With the launch of the K-2, this opens new revenue opportunities for the business. Moreover, this is the first major product led by our Quebec engineering team based on the new Genesis platform and it brings the best-in-class management and monitoring capabilities of Genesis to the Ka band market”, he said.
Baylin is a leading diversified global technology company. It focuses on research, design, development, manufacturing, and sales of passive and active radio-frequency products, satellite communications products, and supporting services. We strive to meet our customers’ needs and anticipate the direction of the market.
