For SATCOM on-the-move (SOTM) terminals, Renaissance has designed a compact low loss isolator with K-connectors to support the bandwidth requirement of 27.5 to 30.5 GHz. The power handling on this model is 10 W forward and 1 W reverse but this package can be customized for up to 50 W forward and 10 W reverse.
To protect the space communication payload electronics, Renaissance has designed a 26.5 GHz microstrip. Main features include compact size, low loss and high isolation. This device meets all of the NASA's outgassing requirements. Some of the benefits include the capibility of being used for space or harsh environments, protection of expensive amplifier circuits and optimization for space constrained applications.
MECA’s new compact low PIM (-160 dBc Typ) 50 W loads with extended power handling capabilities. Feature industry leading PIM performance of -155 dBc Min all while handling full rated power to 85 C. All of the terminations cover 0.698 to 2.700 GHz frequency bands in 7/16 DIN, Type N & 4.1/9.5 (mini-DIN) connectors, VSWR = 1.10:1 Typ/1.20:1 Min.
PMI Model No. PL-MCU-ENET-TTL-MAH is an ethernet microcontroller test box which allows for an ethernet command to be sent up to 18 parallel TTL output bits. This controller can be used with many PMI products that require parallel digital commands, such as switches, attenuators, phase shifters and IQ modulators.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for selected parts from the DG series of wire wound ferrite inductors from TOKO. The DG8040C and DG6045C are part of a new line of wire wound ferrite inductors that cover an inductance range of 1 to 100 µH and feature higher current than previous models. Both device families are RoHS-compliant and magnetically shielded.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for two new gallium nitride on silicon carbide (GaN on Sic) from TriQuint. The TGA2216-SM is a wideband cascode amplifier that offers exceptional wideband performance and also supports 40 V operation and the TGA2237-SM is a wideband distributed amplifier that operates from 0.03 to 2.5 GHz.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new 1.2 kV, 5.0 mΩ all-silicon carbide (SiC), half-bridge module from Cree, Inc. The new CAS300M12BM2 is available in a 62 x 106 x 30 millimeter package and includes a Z-FET™ MOSFET and a Z-Rec™ diode in a half-bridge configuration.
The OX–205 is an ultra-low phase noise ovenized crystal oscillator with a noise floor as low as –176 dBc/Hz in a compact 1" x 1" enclosure. This product is designed for applications that demand extremely low noise sources, including a reference oscillator for a phase–locked loop in the microwave spectrum. Custom frequencies are available upon request.
Vectron's VS–703 Voltage Controlled SAW Oscillator (VCSO) is a SAW stabilized, low phase noise, high frequency Oscillator with CML Compatible Outputs (fN < 1.2 GHz), Differential Sine wave Outputs (fN > 1.2 GHz), operating at 3.3 volt supply, hermetically sealed 5x7 ceramic package.
The VX–805's phase noise is optimized for wireless base stations. Base station architectures are getting smaller and as they do, board densities are increasing. As a result the phase noise performance of the transceiver VCXO is critical for these applications.
