Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a range of Xinger® couplers for aerospace and defense applications from Anaren. Offering a wide bandwidth range, high isolation/directivity, low insertion loss and ENIG plating finish, these high-reliability hybrid and directional couplers are ideal for aerospace and defense applications where size, weight and power (SWAP) are critical.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support a 2 W saturated output power driver amplifier designed to support HPA implementation from 13 to 18 GHz. The Qorvo TGA2958 is compatible with GaN HPA bias conditions allowing it to run from the same supply as the high power amplifier. The TGA2958, 3-stage driver, has a small signal gain of >25 dB yet draws only 70 mA of CW bias.
Now you can achieve high linear output power up to 350 W over the 0.7 to 6 GHz instantaneous frequency band in one benchtop amplifier. AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation introduces this class A unit that requires only 0 dBm input power to achieve its rated output power and offers low harmonic distortion and excellent noise figure. These instruments as well as our hybrid power modules are available in both Class A and AB configurations for demanding EMC, wireless, or EW applications.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the Qorvo TGS4310-SM single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) reflective switch. The TGS4310-SM is specified for operation from 13 to 19 GHz and features low insertion loss of <1.7 dB with isolation >20 dB. Switching speed is 20 nS and the switch control voltages are 5 V / 0 V. Capable of handling 2 W of input power, the TGS4310-SM is ideal for Ku-band Radar applications.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LTC3121, a 3 MHz current mode, synchronous boost DC/DC converter with integrated output disconnect. Its internal 1.5 A switches deliver output voltages as high as 15 V from an input voltage range of 1.8 V at start-up (0.5 V when running) to 5.5 V, making it ideal for battery or standard 3.3 V and 5 V power sources. The LTC3121 delivers up to 40 0mA of continuous output current at 1 2 V from a 5 V input.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for an 11 to 17 GHz driver amplifier providing 25 dB of small signal gain and 19 dBm nominal P1dB. The Qorvo TGA2243-SM integrates three amplification stages in a single 4 x 4 mm QFN package with acopper alloy base. Operating from a 6 to 9 V supply, the Qorvo TGA2243-SM draws only 85 mA. Applications for the TGA2243-SM include VSAT, Point-to-Point radio and military radios in the Ku Band.

Keysight Technologies Inc. announced a software package for use with Keysight logic analyzers, the B4661A memory analysis software.The Keysight B4661A memory analysis software offers the industry’s only functional-level compliance violation testing capability across DDR4 and LPDDR4 speed changes. The B4661A memory analysis software has a performance analysis option that provides powerful new trace overview and navigation features.
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC3877, a dual output multiphase synchronous step-down DC/DC controller with 6-bit voltage identification (VID) control that enables 10 mV output voltage step resolution, a necessary feature when powering FPGAs and ASICs with tight input voltage requirements. The LTC3877 operates over an input voltage range of 4.5 to 38 V and produces a fixed output voltage from 0.6 to 1.23 V when using VID and up to 5 V without VID.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a LowDriftTM BAW filter created for Band 2 uplink applications centered at 1880 MHz. Qorvo’s 885053 has 60 MHz of usable bandwidth and can handle up to 2 W of RF input power. Featuring a low insertion loss of 2.8 dB max, the Qorvo 885053 offers single-input, single-output operation. No external matching components are required which simplifies circuit design.
