Hittite Microwave Corp., the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets, has announced a new E-Band MMIC power detector that is ideal for communications systems, test equipment, sensors and general purpose RF detection over the 71 to 86 GHz frequency range.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces availability and full design support capabilities for four new 650 V Silicon Carbide (SiC) Schottky diodes from Microsemi Corporation (Microsemi). The new devices are the latest addition to Microsemi's SiC Schottky product family and feature zero recovery time (trr), low forward voltage and low leakage current. They are available in compact footprint packages.
Skyworks Solutions, Inc. introduces a 2110-2170 MHz single junction, robust lead isolator in an industry leading, small footprint, 11 x 11 mm surface mount package. The SKYFR-000727 is ideally suited for various wireless/cellular infrastructure applications including small-cell designs where space constraints exist. The isolator’s insertion loss is less than 0.30 dB over an operating temperature range of –40 ° C to +100 ° C.
PMI Model No. TD-6G18G-CD-SFF is a high speed threshold detector designed to operate over the 6.0 to 18.0 GHz frequency range with an adjustable threshold level of -30 to +10 dBm and aVSWR of 3.0:1 max. The unit is supplied with removable SMA female connectors in a compact housing that measures 1.0" x 0.6" x 0.19".
RFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support fortwo internally matched, high IP3 low noise amplifiers from TriQuint. The TQL9042 and TQL9043 both feature bypass switches and shut-down pins offering receivers the highest level of sensitivity performance. The TQL9042 offers 19 dB gain over 0.5 to 2 GHz with a market leading 0.42 dB noise figure. The TQL9043 provides frequency coverage from 1.5 to 2.7 GHz with >18 dB gain and 0.5 dB noise figure.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT3086, the latest addition to the LDO+™ family, offering significant functionality previously unavailable in linear regulators. The 40 V, 2.1 A low dropout linear regulator (LDO) includes current monitoring with externally settable current limit and temperature monitoring with external control of thermal limit temperature.
RFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support for the TGA2813, a 100 W GaN power amplifier targeted for RADAR applications from 3.1 to 3.6GHz. TriQuint’s TGA2813 offers 55% PAE supporting both short and long pulse operation with good thermal properties. Large signal gain is up to 22 dB. 30 V bias draws a quiescent current of 135 to 550 mA as TriQuint’s bias flexibility supports a variety of system requirements.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT8610A and LT8610AB. Both are 3.5 A, 42 V input capable synchronous step-down switching regulators. Synchronous rectification delivers efficiency as high as 96% while Burst Mode® operation keeps quiescent current under 2.5 µA in no-load standby conditions. Their 3.4 to 42 V input voltage range makes them ideal for automotive and industrial applications.
PMI Model No. PE2-28-218-5R0-12-15-SFF is a 2.0 to 18.0 GHz, low noise amplifier that provides 24 dB min of gain. The noise figure is 4.5 dB max and offers an OP1 dB of 14 dBm min. The operating voltage is +15 VDC and the current draw is 200 mA max. The unit is supplied with removable SMA(F) connectors in our standard PE2 housing.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT8584, a monolithic flyback DC/DC converter designed to actively balance high voltage stacks of batteries. These battery stacks are commonly found in electric and hybrid vehicles as well as fail-safe power supplies and energy storage systems.
