EMC Technology has introduced another cost effective solution for temperature compensation in an SMT planar style, the AN11 series. This ultra mini Thermopad® offers the smallest 0402 package size for temperature variable attenuators in the industry. The AN11 series is perfect for hand held devices and instruments, pico base stations and more. With excellent frequency response from DC to 6 GHz the AN11 series handles 100mW of input power, requires no bias or control voltages and generates zero distortion.
Empower is pleased to be releasing the first models of its “Size Matters” high power PA product family. Packaged in a 5U, air cooled chassis and delivering over 1 kW of output power in the frequency ranges of 20 to 500 MHz, 500 to 1000 MHz, and 20 to 1000 MHz, these first units offer unrivaled size/power advantages. Specs are guaranteed across full bandwidth and over temperature.
Lake Shore Cryotronics Inc. introduces the new Model CRX-6.5K cryogenic probe station, an affordable, general purpose cryogen-free probe station that isboth costeffective and convenient to use.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. introduced a new series of radial-leaded, positive temperature coefficient (PTC) thermistors. Devices in the new TFPTL <http://www.vishay.com/doc?33027> series feature nickel thin film elements with positive temperature coefficients of + 4110 ppm/K, fast response time of < 2 s, and high stability over a wide temperature range from - 55 to + 150 °C.
State of the Art (SOTA) Inc., a leading manufacturer of military, space level and high reliability chip resistors, introduces a new line of temperature variable attenuators (TVA) for both high reliability and commercial applications. They are available in a 1512 case size (.150" X .125" X .020") with single surface solderable or wire bondable terminations.
MILMEGA, now a part of Teseq, offers a new amplifier product range designed to meet test requirements within wireless testing frequency bands. The AS0728 family of amplifiers has a frequency range of 700 MHz to 2.8 GHz. Available in 25 W, 50 W, 100 W and 170 W P1 dB power levels, these new amplifiers are ideal in the wireless communications industry where high reliability, excellent linearity, power density and leading performance are required.
IQD has extended the performance of their IQOV-90 series high stability low phase noise OCXOs to encompass the full standard industrial temperature range of -40 to 85°C. High operating temperature ranges are significantly more technically challenging in OCXOs than for other frequency products. By increasing the internal crystals turnover point to a safe margin above 85°C and reducing the thermal loss of the circuit, our design team have been able to increase the maximum external temperature range of the part to 85°C.
inTEST Corp., an independent designer, manufacturer and marketer of temperature management products and semiconductor automatic test equipment (ATE) interface solutions, announced that its Thermal Solutions Group has launched the industry’s most comprehensive line of Precision Temperature Forcing Systems, the THERMOSTREAM® ATS Series. With temperature range extremes as high as +300ºC (+570ºF) and as low as -100ºC (-148ºF), countless test and conditioning applications can now be solved with a compact, precise and portable system.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. announced a new IHLP® low-profile, high-current inductor in the 8787 case size with industry-high rated current from 9.7 A to 180 A and a high operating temperature to + 155 °C. The IHLP-8787MZ-5A offers high efficiency with maximum DCR from 0.17 mΩ to 28.30 mΩ and a wide range of inductance values from 0.22 µH to 100 µH.
Linear Technology announces the LTC6090, a precision operational amplifier that operates on a supply voltage up to 140 V (or ±70 V). Its combination of rail-to-rail output, 3 pA (typical) input bias current, 1.6 mV maximum input offset voltage and 3.5 µVP-P low frequency noise delivers the precision required for high performance ATE, piezo driver, and DAC buffer applications.
