SAN JOSE, USA: Sumitomo Electric Device Innovations USA Inc. (SEDU), a leading provider in advanced wireless and optical communications solutions, will be featuring its enhanced line of GaN HEMTs for satellite applications at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2012 show in Montreal.
Featured will be GaN HEMT devices for L/S-band applications that offer high efficiency, ease of matching, greater consistency and broad bandwidth with 50V operation and higher gain than competing power transistor solutions. Sumitomo's space level Quality Assurance Program assures the highest reliability and consistent performance for space grade level product. This product family is in production and shipping to multiple customers. Sumitomo is also developing a 100W unmatched device for the UHF band.
Sumitomo Electric was first to market with L/S-Band discrete HEMT devices with 100W of output power for space use. These GaN devices cover frequencies up to 2.5 GHz with output power ranging from 4 to 100W. Sumitomo is the market leader for GaN devices for space applications. Combining advanced technological leadership with over 30 years of design, development and manufacturing demonstrates that Sumitomo Electric is committed to the space market.
