Agilent Technologies Inc. announced an enhancement to the Agilent 14585A control and analysis software for advanced power supplies, adding support for the N7900 Advanced Power System (APS) dynamic DC power supplies.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. introduced a new universal edgewound power resistor. Providing a convenient drop-in replacement for competing solutions, the universal-mounted EDGU combines a high-reliability design with continuous duty operation up to 85 A and a short-time overload of 10x rated power for five seconds.
Virginia Diodes Inc. introduced new mini vector network analyzer extension modules, with one quarter of the volume of earlier models. These smaller modules are reduced in size but yield the same industry leading performance as the original designs. This makes them extremely attractive for applications such as probe stations and antenna ranges.
At IMS 2014, Vishay will be highlighting its VJ HIFREQ series and VJ QUAD HIFREQ series of surface-mount multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs). Offering high self resonance and a low dissipation factor of = 0.05 % in the 0402, 0603, and 0805 case sizes, devices in the VJ HIFREQ series are optimized for filter and matching networks, and amplifier and DC blocking circuits in high-frequency commercial applications. The MLCCs reduce signal loss and energy consumption in power amplifier modules, VoIP networks, cellular base stations, GPS systems, and satellite, WiFi (802.11), and WiMAX (802.16) wireless communication. The VJ HIFREQ series features broad working voltages from 25 VDC to 250 VDC and wide capacitance ranges from 1 pF to 1.5 nF.
Coilcraft's XFL6012 series of shielded power inductors combine excellent current handling and exceptionally low DC resistance in a rugged, low-profile package. Measuring just 6.56 x 6.36 mm with a maximum height of only 1.2 mm, the XFL6012 Series provides exceptionally low DC resistance (7.06 mOhms) and current ratings as high as 14.3 Amps.
Pasternack Enterprises Inc., an industry leading manufacturer and supplier of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, unveils new wide dynamic range broadband limiting amplifiers commonly used in electronic warfare, microwave receivers and broadband communications systems.
Richardson RFPD, Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new 0.8W power amplifier from Wavelex.
The WPA0409A offers wide frequency band operation, from 470 MHz to 960 MHz, with 50 Ohm impedance, and features +29 dBm P1dB, 14 dB gain and +43 dBm IP3. It is versatile for a range of applications, including VHF, UHF, PA driver amplifiers, RF bench test, and fixed wireless communications.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for five new gallium nitride (GaN) on silicon carbide (SiC) high-electron-mobility transistors (HEMTs) RF transistors from M/A-COM Technology Solutions (MACOM).
