New VPG ultra-high-precision Z1-foil wrap-around chip resistors tested per EEE-INST-002 and MIL-PRF-55342
Vishay Precision Group Inc. announced that its Vishay Foil Resistors brand (VFR) has introduced a new series of military-qualified, ultra-high-precision Z1-Foil wrap-around chip resistors. Tested per EEE-INST-002 (Tables 2A and 3A, Film/Foil, Level 1) and MIL-PRF-55342, devices in the 303261 - 303266 seriesprovide exceptional load-life stability of ±0.0025% typical after rated power at 70°C for 2,000 hours, low nominal TCR of ±0.2 ppm/°C from -55°C to +125°C, +25°C ref., PCR (ΔR due to self heating) of 5 ppm at rated power, and tight tolerances to ±0.02%.
API Technologies Corp., a leading provider of high performance RF/microwave, power and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, introduces a new line of standard switched filter bankswith customer-specified frequency bands from 2 to 7 channels. With lead times as fast as four weeks, the configurable solution significantly reduces development cycle time, resulting in cost savings and faster time to market.
The CHR3763is a multifunction monolithic receiver, which integrates a balanced cold FET mixer, an LO buffer, and an RF low noise amplifier. It is ideally-suited for Ku-band VSAT applications, as is also versatile for a wide range of other applications, from military to commercial communications systems.
Pasternack Enterprises Inc., an industry leading manufacturer and supplier of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, announces the release of ten new 1 Watt and 2 Watt broadband amplifiers, which are ideal for defense, EW/ECM, radar, test instrumentation, telecom, satcom, microwave radio and industrial applications from 2 GHz to 18 GHz.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduces an eight-channel version of its U5309A 8-bit single-slot PCIe®Gen2 digitizer with on-board processing, providing unprecedented channel density and minimum footprint at this level of performance.
Linear Technology announces the LTC6431-20, a 20 MHz to 2 GHz single-ended input and output fixed gain amplifier offering outstanding 46.2 dBm OIP3 (Output Third Order Intercept) and 2.6 dB noise figure. Its OP1dB (Output 1dB Compression Point) is a best-in-class 22 dBm.
RFMW Ltd. and Aviacomm Inc. announced a distribution agreement effective April 1, 2014. The agreement initially covers customers in North America, Europe and South East Asia with the possibility of future expansion. Aviacomm is a leader in wideband RF CMOS ICs. RFMW Ltd. is a specialized distributor providing customers and suppliers with focused distribution of RF and microwave components as well as specialized component-engineering support.
The SMA-connectorized, zero-degree WPD1040A is a Wilkinson-type power divider/combiner and features a low insertion loss of 0.50 dB (typical), high isolation of 18 dB (minimum) and excellent VSWR. It is suitable for LTE and land mobile radio (LMR), as well as RF bench test and mobile base station applications.
Fox Electronics, a leading global supplier of frequency control solutions and an IDT company, now offers an LVDS version, in addition to the recently released LVPECL version of its next generation ultra precision oscillator technology, XpressO-ULTRA. Designed to meet today’s intense bandwidth requirements that need ultra precision timing technology, XpressO-ULTRA provides exceptionally clean and stable clocking to ensure better performance and lower bit rate errors.
The Fraunhofer Institute for high frequency physics and radar technology has decided to use the world's first 145 GHz broadband millimetre-wave test system, based upon the ME7838A system from Anritsu.
