A GaN Solid State Amplifier Replacement for a 1kW Traveling Wave Tube

This whitepaper discusses the advances in GaN transistor technology, including higher frequency, bandwidth, and power, thereby offering the opportunity to overcome TWT limitations with solid-state power amplifiers and discusses how these solid-state designs overcome the inherent problems with electron tube TWTs of limited life and single point failure susceptibility while addressing the competing high-performance airborne system requirements of kilowatt power levels and compact size.
