This month we are featuring Traveling Wave Tubes by Teledyne, as well as other major OEMs.
Traveling wave tubes remain the best source for efficient generation of microwave power over broad frequency bandwidths. When compared to solid state technology, today’s metal-ceramic traveling wave tube amplifiers combine low acquisition price with affordable maintenance and support. TWTA systems are smaller, lighter, and much more efficient than their SSA counterparts. With the tube-to-tube performance consistency that is achieved with modern TWT manufacturing technology, power combining is a practical and relatively inexpensive means of achieving high power levels. The current generation of TWTs has established an excellent reliability record. For instance, the experience in Space informs the failure rate of TWTs on Intelsat satellites has been 15% lower than for SSAs.
