RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a single-chip front end module serving battery powered or portable applications such as wireless meter reading and smart energy. The Qorvo RFFM6900 covers the 900 MHz ISM band (890 to 960 MHz) with up to 1 W of transmit power. Integrated into the FEM is a PA, SP3T antenna switch, transmit harmonic filter, transmit through path, LNA with bypass mode and matching components for 50 ohm I/O.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for model QPA3240 from Qorvo. The QPA3240 supports DOCSIS 3.1 CATV amplifier designs with up to 24.5 dB gain from 45 to 1218 MHz. Superior return loss performance and extremely low distortion (CSO = -76 dBc and CTB = -73 dBc) characterize the QPA3240 which combines the advantages of both GaAs and GaN for excellent linearity and high output capability of 62 dBmV.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for two 4 W power amplifiers from MACOM Technology Solutions Inc. The MAAP-011161 and MAAP-011193 are packaged linear PAs that operate from 7.1 to 7.9 GHz and 7.7 to 8.5 GHz, respectively. The devices offer OIP3 of +46.5 dBm and greater than +35.5 dBm Psat. The MAAP-011161 offers 22 dB small signal gain, while the MAAP-011193 provides 20 dB small signal gain.
Pasternack introduces a line of voltage variable attenuators offering up to 60 dB of attenuation across broad frequencies from 400 MHz to 18 GHz. This line of voltage variable attenuators is most commonly deployed in applications such as electronic warfare, instrumentation, point-to-point and point-to-multipoint radios, fiber optic and broadband telecom, microwave radio and VSAT, military radios, radar, ECM, SATCOM and sensors, and R&D.
RFMW Ltd. announces a 1 W linear amplifier targeting small cell base stations, repeaters and boosters. Operating from 1.8 to 2.7 GHz, the Qorvo TQP9113 provides up to 30.6 dBm P1dB with >27 dB of gain. With excellent linearity, OIP3 is measured at 41 dBm. The TQP9113 draws only 215 mA from a 5 V supply and integrates inter-stage matching and input matching with a shutdown mode for a less complicated design implementation and increased link range.
The HSX Series RF synthesizers are broadband CW sources providing industry leading phase noise and spectral purity performance. Phase coherent channel options of 10 MHz to 6 GHz, 12 GHz and 20 GHz can be loaded in any combination within the 1U form factor at 1 to 4 independently tunable channels. The dynamic range is +20 dBm to -110 dBm with channel-channel isolation of better than -140 dBc.
The HX-171 is a high stability oven controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO) and is the latest addition to the high temperature oscillator family. Utilizing Vectron’s proprietary crystal designs and state of the art correction algorithms, the HX-171 is achieving a stability of +/-5 ppb over the extended temperature range of -40°C to 150°C. This OCXO offers aging performances of +/-1.5 ppb/day and is specifically designed for extreme environmental conditions.
