Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. announced the immediate availability of the Wavestream Ka-band Matchbox Mini Block Upconverter. The Matchbox Mini incorporates Wavestream's Spatial advantEdge™ technology to provide higher output power in smaller, lighter weight packages that are more reliable and use less energy.
MicroGen Systems announced that vibration energy harvesting BOLT™ Power Cells enabled a live wireless sensor network (WSN) using Linear’s Dust Networks LTC5800-IPM SmartMesh™ IP mote-on-chip at the Sensors Expo and Conference exhibition in Rosemont, IL on June 5-6, 2013.
Avago Technologies, a leading supplier of analog interface components for wireless, wireline, and industrial applications, announced two new RF power amplifiers (PAs), the MGA-43728 and MGA-43828, and a new WiFi FBAR filter, the ACFF-1024, designed specifically for small cell base transceiver station (BTS) applications.
Mini-Circuits and Modelithics Inc. are working together to develop high-accuracy linear and non-linear models for selected surface-mount products. The latest offering includes three new X-Parameter* amplifier models for Mini-Circuits PHA-1+, GVA-62+ and GVA-63+ products.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new 200 W solid state, broadband, high power pallet amplifier featuring Freescale Semiconductor Inc. (Freescale) enhanced rugged LDMOS devices.
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC4290/LTC4271 isolated 8-port power source equipment (PSE) controller chipset designed for use in IEEE 802.3at (PoE+) Type 1- and Type 2-compliant Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) systems. The LTC4290/4271 provides 8 independent PSE channels for simpler lower component count designs, reduced board space and ultimately reduced total solution costs.
Comtech Xicom Technology Inc., a technology leader in high-power amplifier products for satellite communications (SATCOM), introduced a compact and highly efficient GaN-based amplifier for X-band MILSATCOM service. Model XTSLIN-100X-B1 features 100 W of WGS linear power in a compact, rugged thirty-two pound package.
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 LTC6430-15, a 15dB amplifier, which achieves high dynamic range in a 100 Ohm differential environment from 20 MHz to 1GHz and beyond. Two performance grades are available: at 240MHz, the A-grade OIP3 is typically 50 dBm and is fully tested and guaranteed to be a minimum of 47dBm. Noise Figure is 3dB, which corresponds to an input-referred amplifier noise of 1nV/√Hz.
