Building solid state power amplifiers (SSPAs), microwave power modules (MPMs) and traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs) to operate in the Ka-band, Q-band, and other high-frequency bands is more challenging than operating at lower frequencies. Decisions and compromises affecting size, weight, and power, as well as the costs (SWaP-C), become more impactful. This blog post introduces …
