Smiths Interconnect—who recently announced the transition of its technology brands, EMC Technology, Hypertac, IDI, Lorch, Millitech, RF Labs, Sabritec, TECOM and TRAK under a single brand identity—will exhibit its largest range of components, assemblies and systems from 18 to 325 GHz, in Booth #423 at the EDI CON USA in Boston, and of their many new devices they’ll be featuring Ku-Band High-Power Transceivers (HPTs) and 18 to 110 GHz Circulators.
Their HPTs are complete microwave assemblies, integrating GaN solid-state power amplifiers (SSPAs), up-converters, down-converters and digital control technology to offer highly modular yet easily maintained systems complete with advanced interoperability features and multiple Built-in-Test (BIT) functions.
Also featured will be HPC series microwave through mmWwave circulators. They’re designed to accommodate critical mmWave radar and communication bands. At K-band frequency and above these millimeter-wave circulators are able to provide protection, isolation and duplex capability to high-power transmitters and receivers. These circulators are ideal for traveling wave tube transmitter protection. The HPC Series circulators are able to withstand 200 W of continuous wave RF power, with peaks power ratings near 2000 W.
