Custom MMIC added three new GaAs MMIC power amplifiers covering 5 to 11 GHz to their growing standard product library. The CMD169P4 (5 to 7 GHz), CMD170P4 (7.5 to 9 GHz) and CMD171P4 (9.5 to 11 GHz) each have an output 1 dB compression point of greater than +28 dBm, with gain levels from 20 to 30 dB.
Skyworks introduces a highly efficient, broadband, 13 dB gain, GaAs HBT drive amplifier in a small 2 x 2 millimeter quad flat, no lead package. The SKY67130-396LF draws less than 23 mA at 3.3 V, while achieving +39 dBm OIP3, providing the market with a very compelling, high linearity solution. On-die active bias design ensures consistent performance and unconditional stability.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for two new GaAs hybrid amplifiers from ANADIGICS. The ACA2786 and ACA2788 each consist of two pairs of parallel amplifiers that are optimized for exceptionally low distortion and noise figure with input and output transient voltage protection.
Although 2012 turned out to be an off year for RF power amplifiers and devices for wireless infrastructure the market still held its own. The current year should be viewed as a breathing space before both segments resume stable and moderate growth after an explosive 2011.
AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation has introduced a new family of solid-state RF amplifiers that instantaneously covers the 10 kHz to 400 MHz frequency range with both 200 and 400 W models. The amplifiers are designed to deliver all the power required for applications using MIL-STD, DO 160, and other automotive standards. These models can be used independently or with AR's RF conducted immunity generators when specific tests require higher powers than our standard CI Systems can generate.
Delta Microwave, a supplier of amplifiers, filters, filter/amplifiers, multiplexers, and integrated microwave assemblies is proud to have supported the launch of NASA’s Radiation Belt Storm Probes (RBSP). Delta Microwave GPS filter/amplifiers are used in the United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket for range safety during launch.
Vectawave Technology Ltd. has been designing and manufacturing power amplifiers for over 15 years. Until recently most of their production was distributed through third parties. In 2011/12 Vectawave invested heavily in a purpose built factory equipped with cutting edge design, build and test facilities and are now in a position to offer amplifiers directly to the market under the Vectawave brand.
AWR Corp., the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA, and Magus (Pty) Ltd, developers of the leading antenna synthesis product Antenna Magus, announce Antenna Magus Version 4.1, which adds four new antenna types:
