Toronto, Ontario –August 21, 2018– Baylin Technologies Inc. (“Baylin”) (TSX: BYL) announced today that its Dorval, Quebec subsidiary, Advantech Wireless Technologies Inc. (“Advantech”) has released its new L-Band to 720MHz SATCOM synthesized frequency converters.
The new SATCOM L-Band up & down converters from Advantech are designed to translate the 720 +/- 200 MHz band to 800-1550 MHz with 100 KHz step size. This frequency translation provides a low cost alternative for using off-the-shelf, satellite based, block-up or block-down converters that usually include an L-band input or output within 800-1550 MHz.
Cristi Damian, VP Business Development, explains the specific purpose of these converters:“They reduce the high level of customization and the overall cost of the new generation of MEO (Medium Earth Orbit) and LEO (Low Earth Orbit) constellations of satellites, in particular those used for earth imagery and weather forecasting. Both MEO and LEO satellite constellations are intended to provide a lower cost alternative to traditional GEO (Geostationary) satellite services and provide coverage where a GEO footprint is absent. For operators, much of the traditional satellite technology and advancements can be reused thereby avoiding additional high costs and risks of R&D. In an ideal world MEO and LEO system designers should take advantage of the latest GEO technological developments and pair them with advanced networking concepts to better serve their customers’ needs.”
The new frequency converters provide a bridge between high data rate 720MHz modems and conventional off-the-shelf satellite X-Band hardware. Combined with Advantech Wireless’ line of Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPAs) the product line offers an advanced solution for any new applications in which very high data rate modems need to process large amounts of data over large bandwidth. In particular, high definition video links as requested by geo imaging are perfectly suited for this class of converters.
