Amplifiers »


Teledyne Defence & Space (TDS) Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPA) uses LDMOS, GaAs, InP & GaN technologies to meet customer’s needs, producing custom designs to customer specifications. This includes linear GaN amplifiers with 10’s of watts up to 31 GHz.

We leverage existing module designs for drive chain and control circuits, enabling new design efforts to be completed on time and with reduced risk. We have built some of the smallest and lowest weight SSPAs on the market.

 TDS has also developed a new Solid State High Power Amplifier (SSHPA) product line, which provides power from 100W at the module level to multi kW at the system level, and in frequency bands ranging from UHF to Ku-band. These amplifiers utilize state of the art thermal management schemes and unique highly efficient coaxial power combiners to allow designs in smaller form factor with improved reliability.
