Power amplifiers based on vacuum tubes or solid state are key items in a number of systems. Solid state technology is growing up for some applications and it may be complementary to the vacuum technology. This paperwork presents SSPA operational principles and performance. The GaN technology available in the market, the technology roadmap, a comparison with the vacuum tubes are introduced
