Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT8609, a 2A, 42V input synchronous step-down switching regulator. A unique synchronous rectification topology delivers 93 percent efficiency while switching at 2 MHz enabling designers to avoid critical noise-sensitive frequency bands, such as AM radio, while providing a highly compact solution footprint. Burst Mode® operation keeps quiescent current under 2.5µA in no-load standby conditions, making it ideal for always-on systems.
Pasternack Enterprises, Inc., an industry-leading manufacturer and supplier of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, debuts an entirely new family of high isolation PIN diode switches consisting of three low insertion loss, high isolation and high speed modules, covering a frequency range of 1 to 12 GHz.
API Technologies Corp., a leading provider of high performance RF/microwave, power and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, introduces a new line of standard switched filter bankswith customer-specified frequency bands from 2 to 7 channels. With lead times as fast as four weeks, the configurable solution significantly reduces development cycle time, resulting in cost savings and faster time to market.
Prototype device testing shows that GE’s RF MEMS switch can help enable increased data transfer speeds, enhanced signal quality, longer battery life, and the advanced RF designs required of LTE-Advanced devices.
API Technologies Corp., a leading provider of high performance RF/microwave, power, and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, is now offering a switched multiplexer that includes an integrated low noise amplifier (LNA).
