Precision Devices Inc., a member of the Avrio Technology Group LLC, has announced the high temperature (to +90°C) VN01 and VN03 series of Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillators (OCXO). This product is ideal for applications like satellite communications and a variety of military systems where extremely high temperature operating environments are the normal.
Lake Shore Cryotronics, a leading innovator in measurement and control solutions for materials characterization, announced that it is now offering a fully configured probe station for scientists in need of a basic cryogenic probe station at an affordable price.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT8584, a monolithic flyback DC/DC converter designed to actively balance high voltage stacks of batteries. These battery stacks are commonly found in electric and hybrid vehicles as well as fail-safe power supplies and energy storage systems.
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.
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.
Custom MMIC, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), is introducing a free, easy-to-use, Thermal Analysis tool to their array of web-based calculators. The company offers Attenuator, Image Rejection, Cascade Analysis, and now Thermal calculators.
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.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. extended its VJ X8R series of surface-mount multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) for high-temperature applications. To save board space, the devices are now offered in the 0402 case size. In addition, the 0603 and 0805 case sizes have been enhanced with a higher voltage rating of 100 V.
Following the success of the Diamond RF Resistives® product range, EMC Technology now offers CVD Diamond Heat Spreaders designed to meet today’s demanding requirements for higher power and longer life spans by keeping junction temperatures low and stable. CVD Diamond provides up to 8x the thermal conductivity of traditional materials like AlN and BeO.
Rogers Corp. will highlight several of its high quality printed circuit board (PCB) materialsat the upcoming 2013 IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS). Rogers’ Advanced Circuit Materials representatives will be on hand at exhibition booth #1459. In addition, John Coonrod, Rogers Market Development Engineer, will be presenting “Determining Circuit Material Dielectric Constant from Phase Measurements.” as part of the technical program.
