Custom MMIC is offering a low-noise amplifier that is perfect for EW and communication systems where small size and low power consumption are critical. The CMD223 features a low noise figure, high-gain, broadband performance, excellent return losses, and single positive supply voltage. At 13.5 GHz the CMD223 delivers greater than 22 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +13.5 dBm and a noise figure of 1.5 dB.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a LowDrift™ BAW filter created for Band 25 repeater uplink applications centered at 1882.5 MHz. Qorvo’s 885048 has 65 MHz of usable bandwidth and can handle up to 1 W of RF input power. Featuring a low insertion loss of 2.3 dB max, the Qorvo 885048 offers single-input, single-output operation. No external matching components are required which simplifies circuit design.
Anritsu Company announces support for LTE-A 3 Carrier Aggregation (3CA) Carrier Acceptance Test (CAT) requirements. The ME7834LA is a scalable GCF, PTCRB, and carrier-validated test system that enables certification of 3G and LTE devices to industry and carrier standards. It provides test coverage for 3GPP 36.523 as well as a wide portfolio of CAT test plans across multiple operators. For existing users of the ME7834L platform, an upgrade path is available with support.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the RFaxis RFX2411N, a fully integrated, single-chip, single-die RFeIC (RF Front-end Integrated Circuit) incorporating all the RF functionality needed for wireless ZigBee/smart energy applications. Designed for operation in the 2.4 GHz ISM band, the RFX2411N architecture integrates a PA, LNA, transmit and receive switching circuitry.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new 700 to 3800 MHz, UltraCMOS® SPDT RF switch from Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation. The PE42822 is a HaRP™ technology-enhanced absorptive 50Ω SPDT RF protection switch designed for use in high-power and high-performance wireless infrastructure and small cell applications, supporting frequencies up to 3800 MHz.
FEKO, now part of Altair HyperWorks, is available under Altair’s patented on-demand software licensing system. Users can run multiple HyperWorks applications (including FEKO) and other Altair products for a flat rate, rather than paying for each license in use. As part of Altair’s portfolio, the FEKO version number will jump from FEKO Suite 7.0 to FEKO 14.0 to align with HyperWorks 14.0, the next version of HyperWorks.
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC2380-24, a breakthrough no latency 24-bit 2 Msps successive approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The LTC2380-24 features an integrated digital filter that averages 1 to 65,536 conversion results real time, dramatically improving the dynamic range from 101 dB at 1.5 Msps to 145 dB at an output data rate of 30.5 sps.
Berkeley Nucleonics released new high performance, robust and extremely cost effective RF/microwave generators. BNC now offers 12, 20 and 26.6 GHz frequencies. Each base frequency can now be customized with high output power (HP), no modulation (CW only), as well as rack mountable (R) 1U configurations for system integrations.
