Hittite has introduced the first product in the new automatic gain control product line. The HMC992LP5E combines a high performance analog voltage variable attenuator (VVA) core with a high speed power detector in a compact 5 x 5 mm plastic package to offer a complete, compact automatic gain controller (IF-AGC) solution.
Narda, an L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL) company introduced the SEM066 high-performance SP6T electromechanical microwave switch that covers 2 to 18 GHz and is an excellent choice for defense applications that require broad operating bandwidth along with ruggedness and long-term reliability in the field.
A condenser microphone simulation for determining the sensitivity measured in dB (relative to 1V/Pa). The multiphysics system involves thermoacoustics, electrostatics, an electrical circuit, and a deforming mesh. This visualization shows the sound pressure level in the device as well as the membrane deformation.
Skyworks Solutions Inc. introduces a miniature 0402 abrupt varactor diode for VCO, phase noise, frequency control and voltage tuned filter applications. This small form factor, low profile plastic surface mount technology (SMT) package is ideal for applications requiring low resistance and large capacitance over a narrow 0 to 30 V range in WLAN, CATV LNB, energy management, wireless infrastructure and military markets.
Model D9048 provides our customers a 4-Way Combining solution to achieve 500 W CW output power while covering a full 20-1000 MHz bandwidth. While providing exceptional port-to-port unbalance protection, this unit incurs only 0.65 dB of insertion loss. Measuring 5 x 4.7 x 1.4 inches; the D9048 is designed for military and commercial applications.
Vaunix Technology Corp. has introduced two new models to their Lab Brick® product line that together cover frequency ranges from 8 to 20 GHz. The LMS-203 operates from 10 to 20 GHz, while the LMS-163 operates from 8 to 16 GHz.
