HUBER+SUHNER has developed a ground-breaking connector system for distributed antenna systems (DAS). It is field mountable and offers an easy assembling with its one piece design. In combination with an all-in-one cable preparing tool for ½” corrugated cables this connector system can be deployed extremely fast. HUBER+SUHNER Quick-Fit plus connectors are available for a variety of plenum corrugated cables with N, 4.1/9.5, 4.3-10 as well as 7/16 interfaces.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for two Skyworks low noise amplifiers (LNAs) for set top box (STB) applications. The SKY65450-92LF and SKY65452-92LF both provide high linearity (28.4 dBm OIP3) and excellent gain (15 dB) over a wide bandwidth of 40 to 1000 MHz. Characterized for 75 ohm environments, both devices are applicable to cable modems, home gateways, PVRs, DVRs, and terrestrial/cable set top boxes.
Anritsu Co. expands its Signal Analyzer MS2840A family with the introduction of three models that support the 9 kHz to 3.6 GHz, 6 GHz, and 26.5 GHz frequencies. With the instruments, Anritsu fills a market void for cost-efficient, high-performance signal analyzers that address the middle frequency ranges, providing an economical solution to accurately measure wireless equipment, oscillators and other components for narrowband applications, and more.
MetProCo shrouds and headers accept push-on connectors and consist of one of these three configurations; smooth bore, limited detent and full detent. Often manufactured of Kovar® or other material of high hermeticity and stringent RF properties, MetProCo shrouds can withstand inadvert atmospheres including temperatures from -40°C to 175°C. Our custom designed products are relied upon in military (DOD), commercial, communications, aerospace, and other industries.
Pickering Interfaces announced the launch of a high-density 2 amp PXI relay module. 2 amp PXI relay module (model 40-100) – configured with 83 SPDT relays, this relay module was originally designed for applications in aerospace and defense requiring a higher density 2 amp alternative to Pickering’s current 52 SPDT Module (model 40-139).
Skyworks is pleased to introduce two SPDT 75 Ohm switches that are ideal for set-top box and DVR applications. The SKY13547-490LF and SKY13548-385LF feature ultra-high linearity and meet the rigorous requirements of DOCSIS 3.0/3.1 applications. They also boast very low insertion loss and high power handling capability. Skyworks’ new switches are fully integrated and internally matched, reducing bill of material costs for customers.
Exodus introduces the ultra-wide band AMP1074 compact SSPA coveringthe full 2 to 20 GHz frequency band at 10 W Min. The AMP1074 uses C&W hybrid GaN devices, and operates from a 32 VDC supply at 4.5 A with gain flatness of 5.0dB Max peak to peak. Covering multi-bands, this SSPA is suitable for use with all modulation standards and features a small form factor, lightweight construction and high reliability.
Rogers Corp. is pleased to introduce 92ML™ materials. These thermally enhanced laminates and prepregs are specifically engineered and manufactured to meet the demands of high power applications. 92ML materials are halogen-free, flame retardant, thermally conductive epoxy based prepreg and laminate systems. They provide a low-cost, lead-free solder compatible system with enhanced heat transfer characteristics.
Spectrum is pleased to make available a number of academic tools that can be used to learn the basics of waveform generation, acquisition and analysis. The tools are freely available for download on the Spectrum website and are designed so that they can be used by teachers and other educators for structured learning classes or by students who wish to follow a self-tutorial style process. The academic tools are also helpful for first time digitizer and AWG users.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the MiniRF MRFXF0024, a 1:1 impedance ratio, transmission line transformer covering frequencies from of 45 to 1200 MHz. Capable of supporting DOCSIS3.1 requirements, the MRFXF0024 is designed for applications requiring low loss and where noise figure (NF) concerns are critical. Characteristic impedance is 75 ohms and insertion loss ranges from 0.4 dB for return path applications to 0.6 dB for downstream circuits.
