80W X-Band Matchbox BUC
Field-Proven Performance
Wavestream’s X-band Matchbox Block Upconverter (BUC) offers
unmatched efficiency and performance suitable for mobile SATCOM,
flyaway and VSAT systems. The X-band Matchbox BUC incorporates
Wavestream’s next generation Spatial advantEdge™ technology to provide
higher output power in smaller, lighter weight packages that are more
reliable and use less energy. The X-band Matchbox BUC is field proven to
withstand the most extreme environments. Every unit is thoroughly tested
to guarantee performance over the full frequency band and over the full
temperature range.
• Rugged, Compact 11-lb Package
• Feed-mount for Easy Integration
• Optional Integrated Filter and Feed Assemblies
• Higher output power with less energy usage
Wavestream Advantages
What sets Wavestream products apart from traditional amplifier solutions
is the innovative Spatial advantEdge™ technology. This unique patented
technology allows generation of higher output power in lighter, more
compact product packages that use less energy and are more reliable.
Wavestream products are biased for Class AB operation, drawing less
power when backed off to help save valuable energy resources. They
generate less heat, ensuring a higher Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF)
for greater reliability and lower lifecycle maintenance costs.
• Proven reliability and efficiency
• Reduced lifecycle maintenance costs
• Compact footprint to meet critical space and weight limitations
