Arralis is virtually participating in this year’s SmallSat Conference. This company is involved in advanced millimeter wave technology.
The company operates in the communications, satellite, aerospace and defence markets with Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMICs), packaged modules, sub-systems and complete high definition radars and satellite receivers.
The firm’s business model is to design and build every part of a radar or communication system from the devices through modules, sub-systems, systems and innovative antennas. Arralis hold patents in antennas and exceptionally low loss waveguide transitions up to 110 GHz.
Arralis has locations in UK, Ireland and in the USA; in Florida, the company is building an ITAR compliant design and production facility.

- Arralis K/Ka band Satellite Communication Transceivers
This transceiver module enables direct interface with a modem or Software Defined Radio (SDR) and enables full-function Ka-band satellite systems.
The RF outputs and inputs are standard waveguide flanges for high reliability and low loss antenna connections. In order to maximize data rates, the transmitter has an output monitoring function that enables precise amplitude stability when coupled with external pre-distortion or gain control systems.
The module is a complete RF satellite system that allows spacecraft designers a fast, reliable and cost effective means of implementing high data- rate Ka Band payloads.Additional channels can be added in both the Transmit and Receive paths to accommodate specific customer requirement.
- The LE-K1330308 is a High Power MMIC Amplifier fabricated on space qualified 0.25um GaN on SiC. LE-K1330308 operates from 17.5-20 GHz and typically delivers 10W saturated output power, with power-added efficiency of 25% and large-signal gain of 20dB in a compact die size of 3.6×2.9mm.
LE-K1330308 is matched to 50Ω with integrated DC blocking capacitors on RF ports. The part incorporates an output power detector to assist with system integration and is well suited for satellite communications and point to point applications.
