Auriga Microwave, an innovator in the design of high-powered RF and microwave devices, announces that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted a patent for technology that will make the control circuit design much simpler for high-power RF switches used in many communication systems.
Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, is ramping several antenna tuning products with leading smartphone manufacturers. Skyworks’ devices are meeting the market demand for tunable antennas which dramatically improve performance by increasing data throughput, reducing dropped calls and minimizing the antenna footprint needed for today’s multiband LTE smartphones.
Linear Technology announces the LS8 reference family, a series of hermetic precision voltage references packaged in a 5 x 5 mm surface mount, low stress ceramic package. These precision voltage references offer outstanding long term stability and consistent predictable behavior, over time and operating conditions. For instrumentation that demands the best possible performance over years or decades of operation, the LS8 package offers an alternative to large metal can or ceramic DIP packages.
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.
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC4417, a triple-supply prioritized PowerPath™ controller for 2.5 to 36 V systems. The controller selects the highest priority valid supply among three inputs to power the load. Priority is defined by pin assignment, while a supply is considered valid after it has been inside a voltage window set by 1.5 percent accurate undervoltage and overvoltage thresholds for 256ms.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. introduced a new high voltage CMOS driver for PIN diodes for use in military and commercial radio applications. The MADR-010574 is designed to work with M/A-COM Tech’s high power and high voltage PIN diodes.
