Manufacturing of a Phase Matched & Tracking Ku Band Low Noise Amplifier

At Satellink, we have built our reputation with high quality, state-of-the-art amplifiers and electronics. We were recently contacted by a customer in the remote satellite downlink telemetry industry to manufacture a phase matched and tracking Ku Band low noise amplifier. We engineered, designed, component sourced, and assembled this product, which was fully operational in the Ku Frequency Band when completed.

The amplifier was phase matched to ± 10°, phase tracked within ± 10°, and packaged in a weather resistant and EMI sealed enclosure. The amplifier had electrical specifications that included a frequency range of 13.40 to 14.05 GHz, an RF Gain ranging from 50 dB minimum to 52 dB maximum, and a noise temperature maximum of 65°K. The final product was 9.07” in length, 2.60” in width, and 3.70” high, and weighed 60 ounces. It featured a widely variable operating temperature range, from 55°C all the way down to -25°C. Special attention was paid to quality during manufacturing, including functionality tests, visual inspections, and environmental screening. The project was completed in 155 calendar days, and delivered to our client in Garland, TX.
