Richardson RFPD Inc. introduced two GaAs MMIC fundamental mixers from Analog Devices. The HMC557A is a general-purpose, double balanced mixer in a 24-lead, ceramic 4 mm x 4 mm LCC package that can be used as an up-converter/down-converter from 2.5 to 7 GHz. The HMC773A general-purpose, double balanced mixer, available in a 24-lead, ceramic 3 mm x 3 mm LCC package, can be used as an up-converter/down-converter from 6 to 26 GHz.
The electromagnetic simulation software CST STUDIO SUITE® is the culmination of many years of research and development into the most accurate and efficient computational solutions for electromagnetic designs in a wide range of frequencies - static to optical. The 2017 release builds further on CST’s synthesis and simulation capabilities, with new features for filter design, interference analysis and multiphysics simulation.
SemiGen Inc. is offering a series of mounting capacitors that can be screen to class K quality requirements for space. SemiGen’s ideal low loss very high Q mounting capacitors feature low temperature coefficients. With six different capacitances offered from 45 pF to 1000 pF, these capacitors are developed using an MNOS approach and precision photolithography to provide a dependable device.
Richardson RFPD, Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a silicon carbide power MOSFET from Wolfspeed, a Cree Company. The 1000 V, 65 mΩ C3M0065100K is in an optimized four-lead TO-247-4 package with a separate driver source pin. This package provides lower switching losses with minimal gate circuit ringing due to the Kelvin gate connection. The package features a notch between the drain and source pins.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a series of high-power SMT attenuators from ATC. The AT0603 Series provides virtually flat loss over a broad frequency spectrum and is ideal where low noise, low inductance and low parasitic capacitance is required. The film metallization provides stable characteristics over temperature and time.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a high linearity MMIC power doubler designed to support DOCSIS 3.1 CATV requirements. The Skyworks ACA1216 offers 27.5 dB typical gain at the upper end of its 50 to 1218 MHz frequency range. Ideal for hybrid fiber coax (HFC) equipment including line extenders, nodes, system amplifiers and headend equipment, the ACA1216 operates using 12 V and 725 mA.
SemiGen Inc. has added a series of new Schottky Diodes to its expanding product offerings. SemiGen silicon-based Schottky diodes utilize various metal schemes to provide excellent performance for low, medium and high barrier applications through 40 GHz. This series of schottky diodes feature small junction capacitances, low I/F noise, low resistance, and multi-junction chips for optimum performance.
Ideal for electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) shielding applications, MB600G is an aqueous based, sodium silicate system with a graphite filler. Electrically conductive, graphite filled materials are widely used for shielding and static dissipation applications because of their balance of shielding effectiveness and cost effectiveness.
Master Bond MB600S is an aqueous based sodium silicate coating formulated for applications where electromagnetic interference/radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI) shielding is required.Tested according to IEEE 299, 2006 methods, MB600S was as effective as the aluminum reference with a shielding effectiveness of 95 to105 dB, from 1 to 2 GHz.
Building on its already comprehensive range of portable satellite communications test equipment AtlanTecRF launched a range of bench instrument Satcom line amplifiers. The range, which are housed in lightweight bench instrument cases cover a frequency range from 10 MHz to 31 GHz and incorporate all satcom bands including L, S, C, X, Ku and Ka.
