Custom MMIC, a leading developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), has expanded its standard product portfolio with three new frequency multipliers/doublers. The multiplier family now covers output frequencies from 8 to 40 GHz, with both passive and active architectures. The active multipliers offer high output power for driving mixers directly, while their passive counterparts offer low phase noise with a lower output power.
Cobham recently received a series of orders from a leading missile manufacturer for electronic components for several missile programs totaling $157.5M. The work will be performed by Cobham Microelectronic Solutions, a business unit of the Cobham Advanced Electronics Solutions sector.
Keysight Technologies Inc. introduced a 50 GHz frequency extension to the M9393A PXIe performance vector signal analyzer (VSA), providing frequency coverage previously unseen in modular instrumentation.
Mercury Systems Inc., announced it received a $22.7 million follow-on order from a leading defense prime contractor for advanced radio frequency (RF) microwave tuners and intermediate frequency (IF) receivers for a naval electronic warfare (EW) application.
Pasternack, a leading provider of in-stock and ready to ship RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, announces the release of new affordable coaxial-packaged RF amplifiers. Both low noise and gain block amplifiers are offered and display excellent performance covering wide octave frequency bands from 9 KHz to 3 GHz.
Anritsu Co. announces that it has extended the frequency coverage of its MS46322A Series ShockLine™ Economy Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) and MS46122A Series ShockLine Compact VNAs to 43.5 GHz. By supporting the higher frequency, the low-cost VNAs can efficiently conduct S-parameter and time domain measurements on RF and microwave passive devices up to 43.5 GHzin a variety of cost-sensitive engineering, manufacturing and university testing applications.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT3095, a dual-channel IC delivering two very low noise, low ripple bias supplies from a single input. Each channel incorporates a monolithic step-up DC/DC converter post-regulated by an integrated ultralow noise and high PSRR (power supply rejection ratio) linear regulator. The LT3095 delivers up to 50mA of continuous output current at output voltages up to 20V with total ripple and noise < 100µVP-P. The device operates from a 3V to 20V input voltage range, making it compatible with a variety of power sources.
The new TranscendTM 900 Microwave Radio from Advantech Wireless is a simple and versatile wireless point-to-point IP backhaul solution designed to meet service providers’ stringent requirements for a high capacity and low cost of ownership with carrier-grade backhaul solution.
Fairview Microwave Inc., a supplier of on-demand microwave and RF components, introduces their new family of precision waveguide directional couplers. This release consists of 28 models covering a frequency range from 18 to 110 GHz in seven popular frequency bands including K, Ka, Q, U, V, E and W bands.
