The SMA-connectorized, zero-degree WPD1040A is a Wilkinson-type power divider/combiner and features a low insertion loss of 0.50 dB (typical), high isolation of 18 dB (minimum) and excellent VSWR. It is suitable for LTE and land mobile radio (LMR), as well as RF bench test and mobile base station applications.
TEGAM Inc., a leading supplier of innovative RF power measurements, was recently awarded Patent No. 8,558,556, “Planar-axial thermistor for bolometry.” This patent describes a novel way to construct very small planar thermistors on a substrate with very low heat transfer. The thermistors are more thermally isolated from the environment than are commercially-produced thermistors. Both the small size and thermal isolation make them useful for measuring RF power at microwave frequencies up to 70 GHz.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new 0.7 to 2.7 GHz, 10 W hybrid coupler from Wavelex.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new absorptive 75 ohm RF single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) switch from Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. (Peregrine).
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., founder of RF SOI (silicon on insulator) and pioneer of advanced RF solutions, introduces the UltraCMOS PE42721 75-Ohm RF switch for designers of digital TV (DTV) tuner modules, cable TV (CATV) signal switching and distribution systems, multi-tuner digital video recorders (DVRs) and set-top boxes. The switch is ideal for geographic markets – such as China, Japan, Korea and Latin America – where broadband-TV devices must accommodate multiple RF inputs for cable, satellite and terrestrial reception while avoiding interference between these signals.
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., a fabless provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), announced the highest performance, carrier-grade Wi-Fi switch on the market. With the highest isolation by a factor of 50, Peregrine’s switch also sets a new bar in linearity, which makes it ideally suited for the fast-growing market of 802.11ac Wi-Fi access points.
MACOM announced a new integrated SPDT switch and low noise amplifier (LNA), with bypass mode, for WLAN 802.11a,n,ac network applications.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for two new broad band, high-performance switches from Peregrine Semiconductor. Targeting the test and measurement market, the PE42520 and PE42521 SPDT switches offer performance to 13GHz at a 36dBm power rating. The resulting input IP3 (IIP3) is 66dBm while IIP2 is 115 dBm.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (MACOM), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced a new Broadband Sub-Harmonic Pumped Mixer for cost sensitive applications covering the 14-32 GHz frequency range and IF frequencies from DC-7 GHz.
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.
