Triad RF's Growth Continues in 2017

Our 2017 revenue is expected to increase over 30% compared to 2016. This growth can be attributed to several Triad products used by military companies around the globe. Some of these products successfully passed the rigors of MIL-STD testing including 810F and 461G and are now transmitting high speed data and video over long distances. We are also experiencing growth in our unmanned aerial and ground vehicle (UAV & UGV) products. We are currently part of the payload in over eight major UAV platforms and one major UGV platform. Finally, our commercial MIMO BDAs continue to power many high data rate radio systems across the world in fixed, mobile, and aerial applications. Our backlog has remained strong since the beginning of Q2. As a result we have increased our full-time staff by over 55%. We doubled our production personnel along with adding a seasoned Production Manager. We also increased our administration and inside sales staff allowing the original founders to focus on business development.

 

4th Generation Bi-Directional Amplifiers: 2X the RF with 1/2 the DC!!

Triad RF introduces the 4000 Series of Bi-Directional Amplifiers (BDA). The units operate in the Low and High C Bands, Federal C-1 and C-2 bands and the 5.2 & 5.8 GHz ISM bands. State-of-the-art GaN devices, along with complex matching circuits for the driver and final devices, allow the 4000 series to deliver twice the RF linear power while only consuming half to one third of the DC power of our previous generation C-Band BDAs! Various models in module or circuit card formats provide 64 QAM TX output powers of 2 W, 5 W, 10 W, and 20 W while maintaining 4.4% EVM. The size of the 64QAM 10 W unit (5.3 x 3.25 x 0.57 inches) is the same as the previous generation, but comes with several new features including the following:

Transmit Output Power Detector Radio Input Power Detector Improved Low-Noise Amplifier (LNA), lower noise figure (NF). Auto detection mode provides an output signal that states whether the unit is in TX or RX. Improved TX and RX indicator circuitry Status pin states if the unit has exceeded acceptable temperature levels or gone into a failure mode. Improved base plate temperature output circuitry International Protection Rating = IP66

Transmit gain is 25 dB, while receive gain is 11 dB. These units still have the fastest switching time between TX and RX, less than 1 µsec! RF connectors are SMA Female and the DC connector is a 21 pin micro-Dsub. The first 4000-Series model, the TTRM4010 has already passed environmental testing for a large defense manufacturer of high speed video and data links. Production is expected to begin Q1 of 2018.

Ultra Wideband Bi-Directional Amplifier, 30 MHz to 2700 MHz!

Triad has released the TTRM1190, a wideband GaN BDA that operates from 30 MHz to 2700 MHz and produces over 8 W of TX power. One of the smallest BDAs in the industry measuring only 3.25 x 2.12 x 0.53 inches, this feature rich BDA is also one of the most efficient. While producing 8W of RF power, it only consumes 24 W of DC power. It also produces over 2 W of linear 16 QAM power with < 9% EVM. In order to operate on various existing platforms, the unit features a wide DC input range of +11 to +28 VDC. Switching between TX and RX takes less than 1 µsec and can be performed manually. Additionally, base plate temperature can be monitored via an analog temperature sensor. More information on the TTRM1190 can be found here: TTRM1190

50 Watt C-Band, GaN Power Amplifier Runs 47% Efficient

Triad RF introduces another state-of-the-art GaN amplifier, the TA1203. The unit operates from 4.4 GHz to 5.0 GHz, has 44 dB of gain, and produces over 50 W PSat! DC input voltage can vary from +10 to +14 V and only draws 8 A at peak power. Do the math! That is 47% efficient! The module measures 6.1 x 3.3 x 0.8 inches and is in stock. More information here: TA1203

 

 

 

Dual Channel L-Band BDA for MIMO Radios

Triad RF has shipped our latest Dual BDA, the L-Band TTRM1081D. This unit is compatible with all military and commercial radios and provides over 20W of peak RF power across 1.3 to 1.4 GHz, per channel. Made specifically for multi-in multi-out (MIMO) radios, providing 2 radio ports and 2 antenna ports, each providing 5W of COFDM power. The BDA operates off a single +28V supply and provides 25 dB of TX gain and 11 dB of RX gain in both channels. Additional information on this amplifier can be found here: TTRM1081D

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
