Richardson RFPD, Inc. announces availability and full design support capabilities for a large portfolio of high-isolation DC-to-DC converters from RECOM Power, Inc. (RECOM). Designed specifically for insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) systems, the converters' asymmetric outputs of +15 V and -9 V make them ideal to power IGBT drivers, replacing the need for two converters.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LTC3784, a high power two phase single output synchronous step-up DC/DC controller that replaces rectifying boost diodes with high efficiency N-channel MOSFETs. This device can produce a 24 V output at 10 A from a 12 V input at up to 97% efficiency without any heat sink. The LTC3784 operates from an input voltage ranging from 4.5 V to 60 V during start-up.
Linear Technology Corporation introduces the LTC3128, a high efficiency, input current-limited buck-boost super capacitor charger with active charge balancing for 1 or 2 series super capacitors. The LTC3128 features an average input current limit that can be programmed up to 3A with +/-2% accuracy, preventing power source overload while minimizing capacitor recharge time.
Model STC-20-10-S1 is a W band full waveguide band down converter with an RF range of 75 to 110 GHz. The full waveguide band down converter requires a +10 dBm LO signal in the frequency range of 12.5 to 18.33 GHz. It converts 75 to 110 GHz input signal to 10 MHz to 1.6 GHz output signal with a typical conversion gain of 20 dB. The required DC input is +12 Vdc / 450 mA.
Model STN-SF908-00-P2 is an F band scalar network analyzer extender covers the frequency range of 90 to 140 GHz. It offers an alternative way of allowing users to achieve millimeter wave scalar measurement in a low cost approach without losing any of the functionalities and features that the industry standard models have to offer.
AR’s new 10000TP8G10 TWT pulsed amplifier produces 10,000 W of peak output power over the 8 to 10 GHz frequency range with 70 dB gain for various EMC and microwave testing applications. Standard features include a built-in IEEE-488 (GPIB) interface, TTL Gating, VSWR protection, gain control, RF output sample ports, auto sleep, plus various monitoring circuits.
Further enhancing it’s offering of 40 GHz passive products, AtlanTecRF has introduced directional couplers with frequency capability up to 40 GHz in a number of bands including 18 to 40, 6 to 40, 2 to 40 and the ultra-wide band version 1 to 40 GHz. Each frequency range in the new AKC series is available in a choice of 10, 20 or 30 dB coupling.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new 0.2 to 1.0 GHz, N-connectorized low noise amplifier (LNA) from Wavelex.
Anritsu Co. announces that its ME7873L RF/RRM Conformance Test System has achieved the world’s first test platform approval criteria (TPAC) for LTE-advanced carrier aggregation (CA). This industry-leading achievement in the Global Certification Forum (GCF) enables wireless device manufacturers to implement certification of devices employing this new technology.
Renaissance Electronics has designed a high power divider that divides power from 6 to 18 dB across the output ports. Operating between 1100 and 1500 MHz, this 8-way divider has a footprint of 8” x 5”. The divider can handle 350 W peak and 35 W CW.
