e2v’s StellarMini – the latest generation of outdoor satellite uplink amplifiers

The StellarMini™ is the latest generation of e2v high power Traveling Wave Tube (TWT) outdoor satellite uplink amplifiers. Smaller and lighter (weighing only 17.5lbs) than any other equivalent high power amplifier available on the market today, but with just as much power (180W), StellarMini™ proves great things come in small packages.

Like all of e2v’s high power amplifiers, the StellarMini is built to the highest engineering standards, making it reliable in even the toughest situations. The weatherproof, rugged design, alongside advanced cooling solutions, enables StellarMini™ to operate in extreme weather conditions from direct rain to direct sunlight, with proven reliability in temperatures ranging from –40 to +60 degC (-40 to +140 degF).

The StellarMini™ is smaller, lighter and more powerful than the average SSPA. As a TWT amplifier, it provides far greater efficiencies, consuming less power to provide the same or greater power output and has lower heat dissipation, which in turn creates less stress on the cooling system within the unit.

e2v’s satellite amplifiers are the idea choice for Satellite Newsgathering (SNG), Digital satellite newsgathering (DSNG), civil SATCOM, and Military SATCOM.

With over 30 years experience in the design and manufacture of high powered Traveling Wave Tube (TWT) amplifiers for a wide range of applications from communications to military aerospace, e2v has earned a reputation for producing extremely robust, reliable and highly efficient high power satellite uplink amplifiers, with proven performance in high temperature and high humidity environments. e2v is a leading designer, developer and manufacturer of specialized components and subsystems, falling within two product groups: Electronic tubes and Sensors and Semiconductors. These products enable some of the world's leading OEMs to deliver innovative systems for medical and science, aerospace and defense, and industrial and commercial applications.
