Covering the 2 to 6 GHz frequency band, the PTS6900 is a brand new solid state power amplifier (SSPA) developed by TMD Technologies. Optimised for use in EW/ECM systems, the low band CW module produces a high power output of 150 W and has a 55 dB gain adjustable from 50 to 60 dB.
Passive Plus Inc. now offers an extended-values for the traditional Hi-Q high power, low ESR/ESL, low noise, high self-resonance ultra-stable performance capacitors. Usually used for wireless broadcasting equipment, mobile base stations, GPS portables, MRI coils and radar, these capacitors are 100 percent RoHS and offered in magnetic and non-magnetic terminations. These capacitors are designed and manufactured to meet the requirements for MIL-PRF-55681 and MIL-PRF-123.
Sand 9 Inc. became the first micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) company to achieve the stringent low-noise, high-stability and harsh environmental requirements for precision timing in communications infrastructure, industrial and military applications. As the first product based on Sand 9’s patented Temperature Compensated MEMS Oscillator (TCMO™) platform – which features the industry’s highest-performance MEMS architecture – the TM651 offers system designers a better alternative to existing quartz and MEMS-based timing solutions.
Hittite Microwave Corp. announced a new Gallium Nitride (GaN) MMIC power amplifier product which offers significant performance, size and durability advantages for communications, test instrumentation and radar systems operating in the 6 to 18 GHz frequency range.
AVX Corp. announces the availability of new Modelithics models for its 0402 tight tolerance, high current, and high Q multilayer organic (MLO) inductor series. The latest additions to AVX’s Modelithics Component Model Library are part-value sensitive, substrate scalable, and fully integrated with a range of software applications.
Barry Industries, an ISO9001:2008 certified, ITAR registered manufacturer of high quality thick film resistors, terminations, attenuators and high temperature co-fired ceramic (HTCC) packaging, introduces a new 0904 size chip attenuator for Ku, K and Ka Bands. The AV0904GA attenuator has been characterized to 30 GHz, features gold wirebondable I/O terminals with epoxy mount ground pads and is rated to 750 mW. Typical VSWR is 1.20:1 from DC to 18 GHz and 1.50:1 to 30 GHz.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT8614, a 4 A, 42 V input capable synchronous step-down switching regulator. A unique Silent Switcher™ architecture reduces EMI/EMC emissions by more than 20 dB, well below the CISPR 25 Class 5 limit. Even with switching frequencies in excess of 2 MHz, synchronous rectification delivers efficiency as high as 96% while Burst Mode® operation keeps quiescent current under 2.5 µA in no-load standby conditions.
AVX Corp., a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components and interconnect solutions, is showcasing its full range of MLO™ diplexers at the European Microwave Week Exhibition. Based on its patented multilayer organic high density interconnect technology, AVX’s MLO diplexers employ high dielectric constant and low loss materials to realize high Q printed passive elements, such as inductors and capacitors in multilayer stack ups.
Skyworks introduces a low noise amplifier with high linearity and excellent return loss, while drawing as low as 5 mA of bias current. The internal active bias circuitry of the SKY67015-396LF LNA provides stable performance over temperature and process variation.
