Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability of two power limiter ICs from Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation. The PE45140 and PE45450 are HaRP™ technology-enhanced RF power limiters with symmetric RF ports that limit incident power up to 50 W. They offer wideband frequency range, maximum power handling of +47 dBm pulsed (50 W) and +40 dBm CW (10 W).
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new family of high performance baluns from M/A-COM Technology Solutions. The eight new devices are designed for CATV MoCA applications requiring high performance transformer baluns.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for two 24 W Psat (20 W P1dB) power amplifiers from Wavelex. The 50-ohm PAs operate from 925 GHz to 960 GHz, offer high gain, low gain flatness, and high power added efficiency. They are ideally suited for GSM, mobile infrastructure, and fixed wireless communication applications.
Custom MMIC is pleased to announce the addition of the CMD158C4, a new 6 to 16 GHz driver amplifier, to their growing standard product line. The CMD158C4 delivers 21 dB of gain across its bandwidth, while providing +21 dBm of saturated output power at a PAE of 24%. The CM158C4 operates from a single positive supply voltage of +5.0 V at 95 mA.

The company’s latest 264 page catalog contains thousands of in-stock Pasternack products such as RF cable assemblies, an expanded portfolio of RF amplifiers, 60 GHz systems and modules and hundreds of other passive and active RF components.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new 22 to 38 GHz low noise amplifier from M/A-COM Technology Solutions. The MAAL-011111 is a three-stage GaAs MMIC LNA featuring a small signal gain of 19 dB with a noise figure of 2.5 dB. It is offered in a lead-free, 3 x 3 mm QFN package, does not need external components, and is self-biased.
HUBER + SUHNER now offers 120 ohm databus cables for train communication networks (TCNs). The new RADOX® DATABUS 120 OHM EN use electron-beam crosslinked materials, and are thus particularly well-suited for applications that involve high and low temperatures. In addition, the cables are halogen-free, flame resistant and produce very little smoke in case of fire.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a 75 Ω reverse path variable gain amplifier from M/A-COM Technology Solutions. The MAAM-011186 is an integrated two-stage differential amplifier operating from 5 to 300 MHz, with an embedded digital step attenuator (DSA) for CATV reverse path applications.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability for three ultra-fast 650 V NPT IGBTs. These transistors represent the newest generation of Microsemi IGBTs optimized for outstanding ruggedness and best trade-off between conduction and switching losses. They feature zero reverse recovery, low leakage, anti-parallel silicon carbide diodes, low saturation voltage, low tail current, and more.
