RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a Ku-Band SPDT switch capable of handling 5 W RF power. The TriQuint TGS4310 offers >20 isolation with a low insertion loss of <1.7 dB. Designed for use by Ku-Band system providers, the TGS4310 supports radar, instrumentation and communication applications.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT3668, a 400 mA, 40 V step-down switching regulator with dual tracking LDO outputs packaged in an MSOP-16E. The LT3668 operates from a VIN range of 4.3 to 40 V with transient protection to 60 V, making it ideal for automotive and industrial applications. Its internal 600 mA switch can deliver up to 400 mA.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings Inc. (“MACOM”) announced a fully monolithic broadband surface mount bias network utilizing MACOM’s patented HMIC process. The MABT-011000 is designed for customers who need a rugged HMIC device with low loss and high performance with exceptional repeatability through millimeter frequencies.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for three converters from Analog Devices Inc. The new devices include a digital-to-analog converter (AD9144), an analog-to-digital converter (AD9625), and a dual analog-to-digital converter (AD9680). All of the devices are suitable for a range of applications.
Keysight Technologies Inc. introduced the industry’s highest bandwidth and lowest noise oscilloscope probe for making power integrity measurements to characterize DC power rails. The new Keysight N7020A power-rail probe specifications are tailored for a wide variety of DC power-rail measurements. Probe specifications include very low noise, a large ± 24-V offset range and 2-GHz bandwidth.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a 6 GHz GaN SPDT switch supporting communications, EW, Radar and general purpose applications handling power levels up to 40 W. The TGS2354-SM from TriQuint is packaged as a 4 x 4 mm QFN while the TGS2354 offers similar performance in DIE for hybrid applications. Switching speed for both is in the order of 50 nS.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for TriQuint’s TGM3015-SM, a 3 x 3 mm QFN packaged GaN transistor offering 10 W P3dB. Linear power gain is up to 17.1 dB within the 0.03 to 3.0 GHz bandwidth of this device. PAE3dB of the TGM3015-SM is >62% which typifies TriQuint GaN efficiency.
