Regarding the high power amplifiers that are involved in the heavy-ion accelerators, a lack of semiconductor technology and that of power combining technology lead to the dependence on overseas technology.
Since, however, SUNGSAN E&C took part in the development project of the Korean heavy-ion accelerator which was the national industry, called ‘RAON’ in 2012, SUNGSAN E&C had focused on developing the localized heavy-ion accelerator as a matter of priority.
Through 5 years developmental period and abundant knowledge accumulated, SUNGSAN E&C finally developed and announced the successful localization of the 80 kW heavy-ion accelerator on June 27th 2016.
In addition to 80kW heavy-ion accelerator, SUNGSAN E&C has developed heavy-ion accelerators of 81.25 MHz (5 kW, 20 kW), 162.5 MHz (6 kW, 7 kW) and 320 MHz (20 kW) simultaneously.
In conclusion, what SUNGSAN E&C has done has contributed a great deal to the localization of the Korean heavy-ion accelerator.
