Ideal for use in mobile infrastructure and distributed antenna systems (DAS), these new ferrite circulators and isolators cover many of the common communications bands including UHF, AMS, Tetra, Cellular, PCS, UMTS and LTE frequencies. The new circulators and isolators are designed with SMA or Type-N connectors.
Pasternack is offering two Wilkinson designs covering 0.5 to 2 GHz and 0.7 to 2.7 GHz bands. The 0.5 to 2 GHz band power dividers utilize SMA connectors and are available as 2-, 4- and 8-way configurations. The 0.7 to 2.7 GHz band power dividers are available with SMA or N connectors, and are available in 2-, 3-, 4- and 8-way configurations.
Our band pass filters use a tunable 5-section design and have a mechanical direct dial that is accurate within 1 %. Five band reject configurations are available with octave-band tuning ranges from 100 MHz to 2 GHz and are accurate to 1 % of the reject band.
Our new RF terminations come in 25, 50 and 100 W models and are offered with many connector configurations including male and female versions of SMA, N, TNC and 7/16 DIN. The 25 and 50 W models operate to 18 GHz, with the exception of the 7/16 DIN version, which is rated to 8 GHz. All of the 100 Watt RF loads operate to 8 GHz.
Pasternack’s new X band high gain power amplifiers are packaged in a hermetically-sealed metal enclosures and exhibit outstanding performance in high gain, gain flatness, high linearity and wide dynamic range. The new X band high gain power amplifiers from Pasternack are perfectly suited for high linearity applications with frequencies ranging from 8 to 12 GHz.
Cost effective due its silicon-germanium (SiGe) construction, the 60 GHz development system and transceiver modules from Pasternack enable experimentation and development in the globally-unlicensed 60 GHz ISM frequency band.
Pickering Interfaces is expanding its range of PCI and PXI Programmable Resistors. The existing PCI High-Density Precision Resistor Card (model 50-297) and PXI High-Density Precision Resistor Module (model 40-297) have been expanded to increase the versions offered from 6 to 42; each version offers users the choice of the number of resistor channels, resistance range and the resistance setting resolution.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new RF Agile Transceiver™ from Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI). The AD9364 is a high-performance, highly-integrated radio frequency (RF) agile transceiver designed for use in 3G and 4G base station applications. The device combines an RF front-end with a flexible mixed-signal baseband section and integrated frequency synthesizers.
Pickering Interfaces, a leading provider of modular signal switching and instrumentation for use in electronic test and simulation, is improving and expanding its range PXI Microwave Switching Modules. All of these new and improved microwave switch modules will include visual indicators of the relay setting thru the use of blue LEDs that indicate when a normally open path has been closed.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Sangshin Elecom’s KSA series of Globalstar patch antennas. The KSA-LCSP1621MS25 is designed specifically for Globalstar (1611.25 to 1618.75 Mhz) applications. This left hand circularly polarized (LHCP) antenna is tuned / tested for operation at 1621 MHz (5 MHz above the GlobalStar band) to accommodate frequency shifts that may occur in a radome.
