RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a 35 W GaN power amplifier designed for weather and marine radars in the X-band (9 to 10 GHz). TriQuint’s TGA2622-CP offers power added efficiency of >43%. Operating from a 28 V supply, it draws only 290 mA. The TGA2622-CP offers high power in both pulse and CW operation thanks, in part, to TriQuint’s Cu-base packaging offering superior thermal management.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the TriQuint TGA2621-SM, a multi-stage GaAs power amplifier for Radar and SatCom applications. The TGA2621-SM offers saturated output power of >30 dBm with a small signal gain of over 24 dB. Used as a final stage or driver for higher power amplifiers, the TriQuint TGA2621-SM draws 500 mA from a 6 V supply and offers >23% PAE
Custom MMIC, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), is pleased to announce the release of the CMD219, a 4 to 8 GHz low noise amplifier (LNA) in die form, to their growing line of standard GaN amplifier products. The CMD219 has a gain of 23 dB, an output of 1 dB compression point of +18 dBm, and a noise figure of 1.1 dB across its operating bandwidth.
Skyworks Solutions Inc. introduces a hyperabrupt junction tuning varactor diode for automotive, consumer, defense, and infrastructure markets. The SMV1275-079LF offers high capacitance ratio and low series resistanceideal for low phase noise, UHF, and VHF voltage-controlled oscillators, voltage-tuned phase shifters, tunable bandpass filters, and microwave tuners.
Model SBL-0524034260-KFKF-SB is a bench-top broadband low noise amplifier operating from 0.5 to 40.0 GHz. The amplifier exhibits 42 dB small signal gain and average 6.0 dB noise figure over the entire frequency range. The minimum P-1 is +10 dBm. The bench top amplifier is designed to use 100to 240 V AC power directly from lab outlet.
Linear Technology Corp. announces a military MP grade version of the LT3014B, a high voltage, micropower, low dropout regulator capable of delivering 20 mA output current. The LT3014B operates with a continuous input voltage range of 3 to 80 V and generates output voltages from 1.22 to 60 V with a low dropout of 350 mV
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the TGA2627-SM. This 32 dBm Psat GaN driver has a push-pull internal configuration that provides low harmonic content of <40 dBc over the 6 to 12 GHz frequency span. Small signal gain is rated at >27 dB. The TGA2627-SM is compatible with TriQuint’s high power amplifiers, easing the burden of multiple bias supplies.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a 1.25 W driver amplifier serving radar, communication and test instrumentation applications from 2.7 to 4 GHz. The TriQuint TGA2731-SM contains an integrated attenuator and power detector. Self-biasing circuitry allows operation from a single, 6 V supply. The TGA2731-SM’s linear power gain is >24dB.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT8640, a 5 A, 42 V input capable synchronous step-down switching regulator. A unique Silent Switcher™ architecture, combined with spread spectrum frequency modulation, reduces EMI/EMC emissions by more than 25 dB even with switching frequencies in excess of 2 MHz, enabling it to easily pass the automotive CISPR25, Class 5 peak limits.
Analog Devices, Inc. announced an integrated direct conversion receiver development platform for radar systems where reduced size, weight and power (SWaP) implementation is critical. The AD-FMCOMMS6-EBZ platform is a 400-MHz to 4.4-GHz receiver (1350 MHz to 1650 MHz with installed filters) supporting the key L- and S-band frequency radar bands.
