Comtech Xicom Technology, Inc. introduces a new compact and lightweight solid-state X-band block up converter (BUC) designed for high data-rate satellite communications uplinks.

The Xicom Technology, Model XTS-50X1-B1 X-BUC, is the perfect solution for commercial and military users ready to take advantage of new X-band capacity on XTAR and Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) satellites. Higher power in a compact package enables system integrators to offer much higher data-rate uplinks with rugged, compact, transportable, SATCOM terminals. The X-BUC provides 50 Watts of 1 dB compressed output power in a self-cooled, feed-mountable, package specifically designed to operate in harsh environments and meet the stringent RF requirements of today’s X-band systems.

This high performance design provides more than 32 Watts of linear output power as defined for the WGS system, making it the most powerful 10.5 pound X-band unit anywhere. The new X-BUC, is packed full of performance features including temperature compensation, gain control, harmonic filtering, and an output isolator. All this comes in a compact outdoor unit weighing 10.5 pounds and measuring only 10.58 inches long x 5.68 inches high x 4.43 inches high.

A data sheet of the new X-BUC is available including detailed specifications, functional block diagrams and package outline drawings. For additional information visit:
