Mini-Circuits' new PGA-106 series of amplifiers deliver a winning combination of high dynamic range, low noise, and flat gain, fine-tuned to meet specific customer demands across a wide range of 75 Ω systems.
TriQuint Semiconductor Inc., a leading RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, has released two new dual matched low noise amplifiers that are ideally suited for balanced high performance RF design configurations. These integrated LNAs are highly linear and offer very low noise figures, high output and include automatic shut-down capability for use in Time Division Duplex (TDD) and Frequency-Domain Duplex (FDD) applications.
Crystek’s new CVCO55CXT-6525-6525 coaxial resonator oscillator (CRO) is a coaxial-based VCO with an internal proprietary frequency doubler. The CVCO55CXT family’s frequency doubling, 2X fundamental technology reaches new performance levels of lower phase noise and much lower harmonics over the competition, while achieving lower current consumption in the process.
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.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI), a world leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications and RF ICs, introduced a dual-channel differential amplifier for driving high speed 12- to 18-bit A/D converters. Featuring a 3dB bandwidth of 4.5 GHz, the ADL5566 differential amplifier is optimized for wideband, high IF (intermediate frequency), low distortion, and noise performance out to 500 MHz.
Pasternack Enterprises Inc., a leading ISO 9001:2008 manufacturer and global supplier of RF and microwave products, expands its line of high and medium output RF noise sources. This new line of noise sources is perfect for applications requiring reliable frequency levels up to 18 GHz.
Anritsu Co. introduces the MG3740A analog signal generator that outputs AM/FM/ΦM test signals for evaluation of narrowband analog radio equipment used in public safety networks and private commercial networks.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced the extension of its source-corrected noise-figure measurement capability in PNA-X network analyzers to 43.5 and 50 GHz, while continuing to maintain the highest noise-figure measurement accuracy in the industry. Built directly into the Agilent PNA-X, the technique provides a complete single-connection, multiple-measurement capability for R&D and manufacturing engineers developing and testing low-noise transistors, amplifiers, frequency converters and transmit/receive modules.
Aeroflex Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced a new test system based on its PXI 3000 Series modular instrumentation, which has been designed to offer measurements over a 160 MHz bandwidth at operating frequencies up to 6 GHz. The new system is particularly suited for making R&D, design verification, and production measurements on wireless LAN (WLAN) devices based on the IEEE 802.11ac standard, extending Aeroflex's market-leading 802.11ac measurement capability in PXI to cover the optional 160 MHz bandwidth.
