SemiGen has announced that a series of fixed attenuator pads are now available. SemiGen's advanced thin-film technology allows these attenuator pads to have full side wraps for SMT installation and a complete grounding backside for ease in attachment. No ground bonding is required. Top side contacts for the input and output make these ideal for standard RF and microwave assembly techniques. Custom values are easy to fabricate.
TRAK Microwave’s Model 8461 Stratum 1 Network Time Server weighs less than one pound and provides time synchronization of <1 µs of time reference. It is synchronized from an optical IRIG-B DC-level shift link or a wireline modulated IRIG B link. The optical link provides a time synchronization bridge to isolated network domains while an onboard OCXO provides holdover capability in the event that synchronization is lost from the IRIG reference.
Exodus Dynamics, a world leader in microwave and mm-wave phase locked DROs, introduces EDPLO-2200 series ultra low noise, dual frequency phase locked DRO.

Model MFC146 from TRAK Microwave is a dual band block downconverter (BDC) covering the Ku band segments of 10.7-11.7 GHz and 11.7-12.75 GHz. IF outputs for the two bands are 950 to 1950 MHz and 1100 to 1250 MHz, with overall gain of 18 to 22 dB, maximum noise figure (NF) of 13.5 dB (<9 dB typical), better than -95 dBc/Hz phase noise performance, less than -90 dBc spurious and maximum group delay variation of ±1 ns.
TRAK Microwave’s compact, frequency and time reference module (C-FTRM) has been designed to be among the smallest in its category of tactical frequency and time reference devices. Model T001008is a 2.40” x 2.66” module which includes a 50-channel GPS receiver, a low g-sensitivity double-oven crystal oscillator, and time and frequency generation circuitry. It provides reference outputs of 10 MHz, 1 PPS, and time of day (TOD).
Custom MMIC has added another amplifier to its growing product line, the CMD233 2 to 20 GHz distributed low noise amplifier. The CMD233 is a GaAs MMIC distributed low noise amplifier that offers wide bandwidth, single positive supply voltage, low noise figure, and small die size. It is ideally suited for military, space, and communications systems that need a small size and low noise figure over a wide bandwidth. The device operates from a +3 to +6 V supply.
