When you need high power in a compact and reliable form factor, turn to Mercury’s gallium nitride (GaN) power amplifier technology. As a leader in the development of GaN-based power amplifiers, we have the experience and technical know-how to face the toughest design and manufacturing challenges. We have invested in the technology for thermal management, reliable die attach, novel power combiner design and advanced packaging. Combing our GaN experience with our space-qualified processes, we are in the small group of suppliers experienced utilizing GaN devices in space applications. Our products are available as compact, hermetic modules or rackmount amplifiers with integrated cooling functionality. In addition to standard catalog products, we have the necessary engineering talent to rapidly execute on custom designs.
Pulsed power levels up to 4kW
CW power levels of 150 W over 2-6 GHz in an ultra-compact form factor
Frequency coverage to 40GHz
High-reliability process for airborne and space applications
GaN in Space
Leveraging over 40 years of space heritage, Mercury has successfully designed and manufactured GaN SSPA products for use in space. With reliability built in from the first design phase, we have the knowledge and experience to make your mission a success. Our extensive on-site environmental testing capability, proven quality processes and controlled supply chain combine to yield hardware you can trust when failure is not an option.
Optimized for your size, weight and power constrained applications, our ultra-compact SSPA technology achieves some of the smallest form factors available in the industry. We understand the challenges encountered in high power-density design, and through our innovative engineering approach, we have developed a capability ready for your application. Our experienced design and production teams are experts at thermal management, compact architectures and advanced power combining technologies.
Building Block Approach
