GaN-on-SiC for satellite beam steering antennas

A European project is building a high efficiency antenna receiver for space systems using gallium nitride on a silicon carbide substrate. The Kassiopeia project brings together the University of Bristol in the UK, Ferdinand-Braun-Institut (FBH) in Germany and SweGaN in Sweden to develop a Ka-band MMIC (monolithic microwave integrated circuit) receiver.
