RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the TriQuint TGL2203, a 1 W VPIN limiter for Ka-band Radar systems. The TGL2203 has integrated DC blocks on both input and output ports. Capable of handling 1 W of incident CW power, this passive device has a flat leakage rate of <20 dBm at Pin <30 dBm. Insertion loss is <1 dB.
The OX–171 is a high–stability ovenized crystal oscillator in a 28 x 38 mm package, capable of aging rates of 0.06 ppb/day and temperature stabilities of 1ppb over an industrial temperature range. Driven by an SC–cut crystal, the oscillator provides excellent phase noise and Allan Deviation.
Vectron has been a key supplier of SAW filters, SAW resonators and monolithic crystal filters (MCF) since the early 1990s. We work closely with our customers to understand the application in order to develop the optimum solution that meets their requirements. Our design capabilities and cost-optimized production facilities allow us to offer components for high volume and high performance markets.
Keysight Technologies introduced the N7614B Signal Studio for Power Amplifier (PA) Test; an all-in-one, general-purpose test suite designed to help engineers improve PA efficiency through support for crest factor reduction (CFR), envelope tracking (ET) and digital pre-distortion (DPD) technologies.
RFMW Ltd. announces a pair of GaN amplifiers targeted at weather and marine radar applications. Both TriQuint amplifiers operate from a 28 V bias drawing 365 mA of current and both the TGA2624 and TGA2625 are offered in DIE formats. The TGA2624 (9 to 10 GHz) supports a saturated output power of 42.5 dBm. TriQuint’s TGA2625 (10 to 11 GHz) is specified at 43 dBm Psat with 37 dB of gain.
Analog Devices Inc. released the industry’s first software-defined radio (SDR) rapid prototyping kit with dual 2 x 2 AD9361 RF transceivers to simplify and rapidly prototype 4 x 4 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless transceiver applications on the Xilinx® Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC development platforms. The AD-FMCOMMS5-EBZ rapid prototyping kit provides a hardware/software ecosystem solution.
Metrigraphics has developed new breakthroughs in processing substrate-based ultra-miniaturized circuits. The additive processes used are an alternative to traditional chemical etching, which causes circuit lines to slope, resulting in performance variations and yield issues. Using these additive fabrication techniques, Metrigraphics can now manufacture circuits in high volume.
The VectorStar ME7838D 145 GHz Broadband system is the first VNA combining RF, microwave and two mm-wave bands in a single coaxial output. Through the use of the Anritsu-developed 0.8 mm coaxial connector, frequencies up to 145 GHz can be propagated within a coaxial transmission line without waveguide flange connections.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a four-stage, 71 to 86 GHz, bare die power amplifier from M/A-COM Technology Solutions. The MAAP-011106 provides +25 dBm saturated output power and 20 dB small signal gain. The input and output are matched to 50Ω with bond wires to the external board.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a range of new, multi-octave, wideband MMIC devices, including a switch and eight amplifiers, from Microsemi Corporation. The new devices provide outstanding electrical performance, with frequency coverage as wide as DC to 22 GHz.
