Skyworks introduces a step-down, DC-DC converter for automotive, distributed power, industrial, and medical applications. The 28 V, 3 A, non-synchronous SKY87608-11-577LF is also applicable for general purpose, point-of-load, 16, 20, and 28 V voltage regulators. The converter offers prime thermal performance and space savings in addition to addressing the green-power initiative in the non-portable markets.
Gain the flexibility you need to build a measurement system that meets your application-specific requirements. The CompactDAQ controllers integrate a processor and removable SD storage with high-quality signal conditioned measurements and digital, counter, and communication bus I/O in a small, rugged enclosure. You can reduce system cost and complexity while increasing accuracy.
The miniature signal generator from AtlanTecRF uniquely combines exceptional RF performance and versatility of digital interface in a highly compact package. In addition to the ultra-wide frequency range of 25 to 6000 MHz, tunable in 1 KHz steps, the spearhead of RF performance of these ASG modules is in the spectral purity of their output signal. Phase noise at an output frequency of 1 GHz is better than -106 dBc/Hz at an offset of 100 KHz from the carrier.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the TGA3503-SM, 2 to 30 GHz gain block from TriQuint (Qorvo). The TGA3503-SM offers 19 dBm of output P1 dB with a corresponding small signal gain of up to 10 dB. Output third order intercept is >25 dBm. Wideband performance of the TGA3503-SM supports multiple applications such as Electronic Warfare (EW), military and commercial radar and military or commercial communication systems.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new UltraCMOS true DC RF switch from Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation. The PE42020 is a HaRP™ technology-enhanced SPDT true DC RF switch that operates from DC up to 8 GHz with integrated RF, analog and digital functions. It can be configured as a 50-ohm absorptive or open reflective switch and offers power handling of +30 dBm at 0 Hz and +36 dBm at 8 GHz.
Pasternack’s release of high power limiters consists of 7 unique designs that provide low leakage power to sensitive control components in the receiver chain while offering good suppression of even-order harmonics under hard limiting. These RF limiters operate over a frequency range in bands from 0.5 to 40 GHz and provide low leakage power circuit protection of 10 to 15 dBm.
Second generation of surface-mount (SMT II) isolators and circulators, with frequency ranging from 800 MHz to 3.8 GHz. The SMT II devices are designed for low IMD application, PCB application, with very compact package and soldering reflowing durability. Minimum isolation is 20 dB, maximum insertion loss 0.35 dB, -75 dBc IMD with custom design available upon request.
Coupler Model 120406 enhances the product line with performance ratings including nominal coupling (with respect to output) of 6 dB, ±0.5 dB, and frequency sensitivity of ±0.30 dB. The directional coupler exhibits insertion loss (including coupled power) of less than 1.8 dB, directivity of greater than 15 dB, maximum VSWR (any port) is 1.35, input power rating is 20 W average and 3 kW peak. Operating temperature is -54° to 85°C.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the TGA2624-CP, 9 to 10 GHz power amplifier from TriQuint (Qorvo). The TGA2624-CP offers 16 W of saturated output power with 27 dB of gain and can be used in both pulsed and CW operation for marine and weather radar applications. It is capable of operating from a 28 V bias with 365 mA of quiescent current.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a low noise active mixer from M/A-COM Technology Solutions. The MAMX-011023 is used for down frequency conversion, features an ultra-wideband IF bandwidth of 8 GHz, and has the LO and RF driving the same pin. The mixer can be used for lower sideband (LSB) or upper sideband (USB) mixing.
