Additionally, these standard products offer options such as high speed pulsing, integrated output isolators, over temperature shut down, bad load VSWR protection, output power detection and control interfaces. Packaging options include hermetic module, bench top or rack mount. At Mercury Systems we leverage our extensive library of electrical and mechanical design configurations to support concept-to-completion of custom GaN SSPAs and integrated assemblies that can include other functionality such as switches, filters and mixers. Mercury Systems designs and manufactures gallium nitride (GaN) power amplifiers for electronic warfare (EW), radar, communications, test equipment and satellite applications. Gallium nitride is a wideband semiconductor material that offers higher power densities and better broadband impedance matching than conventional gallium arsenide devices. Mercury's GaN amplifiers operate from a higher bias voltage, generally from +28V to +50V, and provide significantly higher output power than other similarly sized technologies. System designers have utilized our GaN solid state power amplifier (SSPA) technology to significantly improve the size, weight, power consumption and reliability of their systems while at the same time reducing cost.
