X-band Transmitter

The PULSAR-XTX is an extremely compact X-Band transmitter designed for CubeSat missions. The transmitter implements OQPSK and QPSK modulation with transmission data rates of up to 50 Mbps.

It implements a CCSDS specification which allows this product to be compatible with commercial off-the-shelf satellite demodulators. The PULSAR-XTX is in-flight configurable in 100kbps steps, covers the 8.025 – 8.375 GHz frequency range in-flight configurable in 1 MHz steps.

This solution has low power requirements with <10 W (for maximum RF power output) and is powered from unregulated battery bus or regulated 5V. The PULSAR-XTX solutions have been tried, tested and trusted on an array of on orbit missions proving to be not only reliable but efficient.

The Pulsar-XTX has extensive flight heritage and are compatible with our low profile patch antenna. These solutions are supplied with user manuals, flight boards and STEP files for seemless system integration
