M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech), a provider of innovative microwave and RF design solutions and products, is introducing a family of circulators and isolators for L- and S-band radar and avionics applications. The product family is packaged in small drop-in packages ideally suited for high volume manufacturing. The announcement is being made at European Microwave Week 2009 in M/A-COM Tech’s Stand #316.
These new products were realized using the in-depth design and manufacturing knowledge developed with more than 30 years of supplying the military and commercial industries. “Our ferrite circulators have industry leading insertion loss performance. Insertion loss is a critical parameter in radar design. For a 100 W tone, every 0.1 dB of loss thru the circulator results in 2.3 W of lost transmit power. Using an above ferromagnetic resonance design approach, M/A-COM Tech’s circulators have a typical insertion loss of < 0.30 dB,” said Brian Hartnett, Director of Engineering of the company’s Infrastructure Group in Cork, Ireland.
“M/A-COM Technology Solutions is committed to supporting customers with low insertion loss, small packaged products at a competitive price,” added Don Carrick, Product Manager for M/A-COM Tech.
