GaN power amplifiers are driving demand for increased power handling from supporting passive components, and Marki Microwave is responding with new high power bias tees and baluns. The new high power surface mount baluns (BALH-0003SMG and BALH-0006SMG) have a 37 dBm 1 dB compression point and improved 5 dB insertion loss (2 dB excess).
KCB Solutions is pleased to announce a new suite of SPST through SP6T switches designed to meet high power-handling requirements from 50 to 200 Watts. These switches are available in QFN-style packages and thermally conductive flange-mount packages.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. introduced two new IHTH high-current, high-temperature through-hole inductors in the 0750 and 1125 case sizes. For automotive applications, the AEC-Q200-qualified IHTH-0750IZ-5A and IHTH-1125KZ-5A feature high operating temperatures to +155 °C, high rated currents to 125 A, and a wide range of inductance values from 0.47 µH to 100 µH.
RF Micro Devices Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency solutions, announced its release of a broadband, microwave voltage-controlled attenuator, the RFSA2113.
KCB Solutions, an ITAR and AS9100 accredited microwave design and manufacturing center, is pleased to announce a new line of fully-screened Hi-Rel switches, attenuators, and power amplifiers. These GaAs devices meet the screening and qualification requirements of MIL-PRF-38534 and MIL-PRF-38535 and are available in a choice of leaded packages or newly qualified KCB hermetic QFNs.
TriQuint Semiconductor Inc., a leading RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, released its new gallium nitride (GaN) integrated power doubler with superior performance for fast-growing CATV infrastructure.
International Manufacturing Services Inc. (IMS), a leading manufacturer and supplier of high quality thick film chip resistors, terminations, attenuators and other RF components to the electronics industry, announces the availability of its compact Thick Film 7GHz SMT Wilkinson Power Divider.
Linear Technology announces the LTC3639, a 150V input-capable synchronous buck converter that delivers up to 100mA of continuous output current. It operates from an input voltage range of 4.5V to 150V, eliminating the need for an external transient suspension device. The LTC3639 utilizes internal synchronous rectification and a programmable peak current-mode design to optimize efficiency over a broad range of output currents.
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., a fabless provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), announced availability of the industry’s highest-isolation SPDT RF switch for the wireless infrastructure market. The UltraCMOS® based PE42420 RF switch has high isolation of 64 dB @ 4 GHz — an approximately 20% increase over competing devices on the market.* Additionally, the switch features HaRP™ technology enhancements to deliver high linearity, with an IIP3 of 65 dBm.
EMC Technology, a Smiths Microwave business, introduces the new 42UW series of high performance coaxial fixed attenuators, manufactured to meet the environmental requirements of MIL-DLT-3933. These coaxial attenuators offer superior attenuation accuracy and VSWR, with extended broadband frequency operation from DC to 26 GHz.
