Compact 40W P1db BUC provides higher output power with less energy
by Staff Writers
Washington DC (SPX) Dec 17, 2012


Matchbox Mini is the next evolution in the Wavestream Matchbox series.

Gilat Satellite Networks has announced the immediate availability of the Wavestream Ku-band Matchbox Mini Block Upconverter. The Matchbox Mini 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.

Matchbox Mini is the next evolution in the Wavestream Matchbox series. The Mini product retains all the features and performance of its Ku-band predecessor but in a smaller and lighter package improving mobility and setup time of transportable systems.

The Matchbox features:

+ Groundbreaking compact 40W P1db BUC
+ Low power draw, high MTBF (mean time between failures)
+ Flexible, modular feed-mount design
+ Holds specs over temperature and frequency
+ Optional 1:1 redundancy kits

"In creating the Matchbox Mini, we leveraged the experience gained in fielding over 7000 40W Ku-band BUCs," said Michael Barthlow, GM of Gilat Satellite Networks in North America.

"The smaller and lighter Mini retains all the features, high reliability and dependability our customers have come to expect, in a more compact and powerful BUC."

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 MTBF for greater reliability and lower lifecycle costs. Optional 1:1 redundancy kits are available to provide an integrated solution for uninterrupted, reliable satellite transmissions.

Matchbox Mini joins the Matchbox family and is available for order.
