GigOptix Inc. introduced its linear quad-channel modulator driver, the GX62476, for low-power coherent metro applications. The GX62476 extends GigOptix’s telecom driver market leadership position into metro applications with a quad-channel, 32 Gbps solution offering the lowest power dissipation of less than 1.1 W/channel at a 5 VPP swing using 5 V supply voltage and 0.75 W/channel at a 3 VPP swing using a 3.3 V supply voltage.
DiTom Microwave has released a new Ka-Band (27-31 GHz) space qualified isolator. The DS1017 is manufactured to meet or exceed environmental space-level reliability including thermal shock, sine and random vibration, temperature cycling, and thermal vacuum survivability over a specified qualification and acceptance test plan.
Morion has announced their new high precision, surface-mount OCXO for SatCom, GPS, network-synchronization and test & measurement applications. The MV272M is presently available at a fixed frequency of 10 MHz. The MV272M has phase noise of -115 dBc/Hz at 1 Hz offset, with short-term stability (ADEV) better than 5 x 10-13 per second.
Morion announced a new low profile, high precision, low phase noise OCXO. The MV331 is available from 10 to 20 MHz and has phase noise of -152 dB/Hz at 100 Hz, -160 dB/Hz at 1 kHz, and -165 dB/Hz at 10 kHz. Long term stability is 2E-8/year, with temperature stability (-20 to +70°C) of 3E-9.
Anatech Electronics LPH Series are 50 ohm high performance lowpass filters, with minimal insertion loss at the cutoff frequency (Fc) and relatively sharp transition to the rejection frequencies. They are designed to remove interference as well as harmonics. Their size ranges anywhere from 2.7" to 14.5" in length, including the connector. The LPH series can be used in a variety of platforms, such as test lab bench measurements and system harmonic reduction.
High Speed Interconnects (HSI) has recently announced the capability to engineer, extrude, and terminate twinaxial cables capable of exceeding today's high performance, server signal processing speeds. HSI's customized twinaxial cable handles speeds of up to 140 GBPS, while controlling for insertion losses of less than 0.8 dB per foot at 12 GHz. They have a tunable impedance range of ±0.5 ohm for 85 and 100 ohm designs.
3H Communication Systems model number XLCN400-30-7SS, is a leadless SMT bandpass filter with a notch integrated into the passband. Insertion loss at 235 to 345 MHz is < 2.0 dB and < 2.5 at 435 to 465 MHz. The notch band is centered at 400 MHz with a 30 MHz notch band of >15 dB attenuation. The filter size is 0.74 L x 0.44 W x 0.27 H" and is suitable in tape and reel packaging.
The small form factor and outstanding electrical characteristics combined with reliable mating and ease of use make the MXP an excellent solution for bench-top and system testing. MXP can also be used as an interconnect within automated semiconductor test equipment. The MXP product line offers a large selection of bandwidths: MXP50 (50 GHz), MXP40 (40 GHz) and MXP18 (18 GHz) that cover current data rate requirements.
CST EMC STUDIO contains a toolkit of proven solver technology for the study of EMC effects, with general purpose 3D modules for time and frequency domain simulation alongside more specialized solvers. In particular, it includes the 3D transmission line matrix (TLM) method solver, which implements technology that simplifies numerical EMC analysis, such as compact models and octree meshing.
Krytar's directional coupler Model 106026506 delivers 6 dB (±0.5 dB) of nominal coupling (with respect to output) and frequency sensitivity of ±0.50 dB. Directivity is >14 dB. The coupler exhibits insertion loss of <1.6 dB across the full frequency range including coupled power. Maximum VSWR at any port is 1.45, input power rating is 20 W average and 3 kW peak. Operating temperature is -54°C to +85°C.
