Abstract
Nuvotronics has created a unique PolystrataT metal micromachining process, used to create suspended recta-coax lines, high performance MMIC sockets, and millimeter-wave (MMW) interconnection circuits with low loss, small size/high density, and durability. Nuvotronics and their collaborators are proposing to develop high power, high efficiency V-band Solid State Amplifiers for future Military Satellite Communication Systems. The significance of the innovation primarily lies in two areas: state of the art GaN MMICs amplifiers combined with extremely low loss / high efficiency corporate power combiners and spatial combiners realized using PolystrataT technology. BENEFIT: High power solid state power amplifiers will find widespread application in DOD and commercial communication systems.
