K/Ka-Band Transceiver Built for Satellites

Jan. 6, 2020
The LE-KaTR-102, developed by Arralis, is designed to fit within a 1U CubeSat profile.

Arralis announced the launch of a new K/Ka-band transceiver for satellite applications. The LE-KaTR-102 transceiver is a fully populated PCB designed to fit within a 1U CubeSat profile (100 × 100 × 100 mm). Frequency coverage will include 27 to 30.5 GHz for uplink communications and 17 to 21.2 GHz for downlink communications. The design is based off the company’s Leonis plug-and-play chipsets.

The chipset includes a 17- to 21-GHz transmitter, 27- to 31-GHz receiver, phase-locked loop (PLL), and 24-GHz VCO. The devices feature direct IQ inputs and outputs to support high-data-rate complex modulations.
