Power Amplifiers — with GaN-on-Diamond Technology

The Akash Cubesat Radios combine an X-band or Ka-band transmitter with an S-band receiver into a compact form factor perfect for small satellites looking for high data rates. The cubesat’s software defined radio (SDR) provides optimum flexibility, including the ability to adjust modulation in-flight.

At the core of the Akash Cubesat Radio is our proprietary Gallium Nitride (GaN)-on-Diamond MMIC Power Amplifier designed for exceptional thermal and RF performance. Akash’s amplifiers are ideally suited for space-based communications systems requiring high efficiency, high data rates, and demanding SWAP requirements.

The Akash Cubesat Radios are designed for maximum compatibility with existing satellite designs and ground station infrastructure. Customization is possible – please inquire.
