Also, because of recent FCC regulations that severely limit the effective isotropic radiated power (EIRP) per unit bandwidth of a UWB DUT, the available power in the far field is small.
However, higher effective isotropic radiated power (EIRP) is obtained from this MBPA by driving each element with equal and maximum available power.
ICO satellites will carry an integrated C- and S-band payload -- with a total of 5,100 watts of power and a peak effective isotropic radiated power of 58 dBW -- to support 4,500 simultaneous telephone calls.
Crosspan offers both 500 and 1250-watt effective isotropic radiated power (EIRP), two carrier, active antennas which consist of a multi-aperture phased array antenna, distributed low-power amplifiers and low-noise amplifiers (all integrated in a single package).
