Tektronix Inc., announced that it will enter the power analyzer instrument market and introduce a full new product line in the coming months. To facilitate this move, Tektronix has implemented a technology transfer agreement which includes power analyzer intellectual property, patents and product designs from its partner Voltech, which will exit the power analyzer segment of its business by September 30, 2013.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI), a world leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications and RF ICs, introduced a high performance RMS power detector. Featuring operation up to 10 GHz and a 67 dB measurement range, the ADL5906 TruPwr™ RMS detector is frequency versatile and eliminates the need for external input tuning devices, such as a balun.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. announced a new surface-mount Power Metal Strip® resistor featuring a wide side terminal construction that yields a high 2 W power rating in the compact 1020 case size. The WSL1020 combines its high power-to-footprint-size ratio with extremely low resistance values down to 0.003 Ω and stable resistance tolerances to 0.5 percent.
Analog Devices Inc. introduced the CN0267 demonstration circuit for a loop powered HART® (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer) enabled smart transmitter, for industrial applications that need to operate within a set 3.5-mA power budget. This field instrument circuit demonstrates a complete low power, high precision signal chain solution with minimum area overhead, which has been tested and verified by ADI as part of their Circuits from the Lab™ reference circuits’ initiative.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the RFPA2026, 700 to 2700MHz, 2W power amplifier module from RFMD. The RFPA2026 is a 3-stage module with independent bias control for each stage plus the ability to bypass the first stage to reduce gain and power consumption. With all stages active, the RFPA2026 provides 38dB of gain at 2140MHz with a corresponding P1dB of 33dBm.
Keithley Instruments Inc. announces enhancements to its Automated Characterization Suite (ACS) software that support its expanding family of high power semiconductor characterization solutions.
Vaunix Technology Corp. announced the addition of eight new models to its LMS Series of signal generators. The additions are in response to customer demand for defined frequency bands through 4 GHz, specifically 70 to 450 MHz, 250 to 1500 MHz, 600 to 3200 MHz, and 1000 to 4000 MHz.
CTS Electronic Components Inc. announces development of Model 148, oven controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO), which use the unique SC cut crystal technology to significantly reduce power consumption (0.23W at +25ºC) and allow for additional board space with its miniature-sized package.
TriQuint Semiconductor Inc. has released three new packaged GaAs RF power amplifiers that deliver high output, gain and efficiency for commercial and defense applications including point-to-point microwave radio, radar, VSAT and related applications.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for TriQuint Semiconductor’sTGF2025 high efficiency heterojunction power FET. This discrete device utilizes TriQuint’s proven standard 0.25um power pHEMT production process featuring advanced techniques to optimize microwave power and efficiency at high drain bias operating conditions.
