Agilent Technologies Inc. announced the U1273AX OLED handheld digital multimeter, which can operate in temperatures as low as -40 C. Even in such frigid conditions, the new handheld DMM provides accurate results with no warm-up time required. When paired with the U1583B AC current clamp, the U1273AX supports current measurements without breaking the circuit under test.
Richardson RFPD, Inc. announces availability and full design support capabilities for a new family of 1200 V non-punch-through (NPT) insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) from Microsemi Corporation (Microsemi). This new generation of IGBTs offers a dramatic reduction of twenty percent, or more, in total switching and conduction losses.
Hittite Microwave Corp. has recently reduced the list price of their HMC-C072, HMC-C076, HMC-C077, and HMC-C079 GaAs HBT ultra-low phase noise amplifier modules that are ideal for high performance applications in microwave radio, military & space, radar systems, test instrumentation and synthesizer applications from 1.5 to 12 GHz.
The RFCM2680 is the industry's first surface mount GaN power doubler module aimed at CATV networks. Employing a combination of GaN HEMT and GaAs pHEMT technologies, the device provides high output capability from 45 to 1003 MHz with excellent distortion performance.
Florida RF Labs has expanded its line of stranded center conductor cables Lab-Flex® S, a modified version of the Lab-Flex® high performance flexible cable assemblies. Lab-Flex® S cables offer higher flexure rates and durability than solid center conductor designs. They are especially well-suited for test set-ups in addition to radar and antenna systems applications requiring flexible coaxial interconnects that are subjected to constant motion.
The Agilent N1045A 2/4-port electrical remote sampling head module provides the most economical solution for accurately characterizing multilane designs used in today’s new and emerging standards such as IEEE 802.3 ba/bj/bm (40/100 Gb Ethernet) and Optical Internetworking Forum CEI 3.0. Users can configure up to four N1045A modules in a single Agilent 86100D DCA-X wide-bandwidth oscilloscope mainframe.
Lasers offer distinct advantages over machine cutting of frozen epoxies and EMI/noise suppression materials. Achieving consistency and repeatability with traditional methods of machining is challenging, as these methods often damage and waste material, and frozen epoxies and EMI materials require special handling throughout the manufacturing process.
Linear Technology Corporation introduces the LTM2883, a 6-channel SPI/Digital or I² C digital µModule® isolator with triple rail regulated power for 3.3 and 5 V systems. In industrial systems applications, ground potentials can vary widely, often exceeding the tolerable range, which can interrupt communications or even destroy components.
Hittite Microwave Corp., has launched two new power amplifier products which are ideal for microwave radio, EW, ECM and radar applications to 28 GHz. Also released is a unique wideband LNA which operates from 300 MHz to 20 GHz and is ideal for wideband multi-chip-module and subsystem applications.
