Attenuator Design Kit
EMC Technology introduces a new ultra broadband, wire bondable chip attenuator kit, K-BAND-DKIT. Designed with high frequency in mind, this kit offers a complete selection of wire bondable attenuators both fixed (KFA) and temperature variable (KTVA). The products included in the kit operate effectively in the 16 to 36 GHz frequency range. This is the perfect design kit for the high frequency customer and provides an ample amount of both fixed and temperature compensating attenuators to complete most designs. The K series attenuator product can handle up to 200 mW and is available in many dB values with an operating temperature range from -55° to +150°C.

Type N Panel Receptacles
San-tron announced the release of a UG-58 A/U Type N panel receptacle that features single piece body construction. The seamless UG-58s are manufactured using a custom machine designed and built by San-tron for fully automated assembly. This automation and construction method saves time and money during the manufacturing process, allowing for lower prices that make the receptacles a cost efficient choice for the consumer. The one piece construction of the UG-58s also dramatically increases the reliability of the panel receptacle by eliminating interference. The result is consistently smooth signal transfer. The UG-58 A/U panel receptacles have a frequency range of DC to 11 GHz and a nominal impedance of 50 ohms.
