Milpitas, CA - October 7, 2020 – Teledyne Paradise Datacom (Paradise), part of the Teledyne Defense Electronics Group, today announced recent contract awards totaling $7.4 million to provide numerous PowerMAX SSPA (solid state power amplifier) systems over the course of the next two years.

The largest single award of $5.9M calls for multiple PowerMAX SSPA systems to be deployed by the customer to support Telemetry, Tracking, and Control (TT&C) and broadband data transmission for satellite communications during an ongoing expansion of teleport facilities.

The PowerMAX systems from Paradise are a proven, mature platform for global satcom OEMs and service providers with over 60 similar systems deployed throughout North America, Europe, and Asia.

"For many years our PowerMAX indoor and outdoor systems have been the technology of choice for satcom providers because of the fault tolerant architecture that ensure maximum reliability," said Mike Towner, Senior Director of Sales and Marketing for Paradise. "The fact that there is no single point of failure existing anywhere in a PowerMAX SSPA system makes this platform very popular for applications where reliability is Job One."

PowerMAX systems deliver complete parallel redundancy down to the embedded control level, thus allowing continuous remote communications with the system even in the event of the loss of an entire amplifier. A modular N+1 soft-fail, phase-combined system, PowerMAX is typically used as a "self-redundant" system and can be sized so that even with the loss of an RF module, the system automatically adjusts to maintain constant output power without the need for mechanical switching.

A powerful monitor and control system enables customers to operate a PowerMAX system either locally or remotely, and as a single rack or a multi-module array. Unlike a common rack system, the modules are contained in an integrated frame that is designed to facilitate removal and replacement of a module with minimal effort.

All of the PowerMAX systems are manufactured out of the Teledyne High Power Center of Excellence in Rancho Cordova, California.

    Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
