Linear Technology has developed the LTC6946, the first device in a family of high performance integer-N frequency synthesizers with integrated VCO, delivering −226 dBc/Hz normalized closed-loop in-band phase noise, −274 dBc/Hz normalized in-band 1/f noise and best-in-class −103 dBc spurious output.
Florida RF Labs has introduced a new and innovative solution for power combining and monitoring. The Doupler™ is a hybrid coupler and directional coupler integrated within a single SMT package. This novel approach brings together the benefits of reduced component count, lower insertion loss, and minimized PCB footprint.
The AR-50 booster amplifier boosts tactical radio signals from handheld and back-pack multi-band VHF/UHF tactical radio equipment employing legacy, proprietary and emerging JTRS waveforms. It provides 50 W of output with as little as 3 W input and offers two antenna ports dedicated to line-of-sight (LOS) or UHF Satellite (SATCOM).
Hittite Microwave Corp. announces the release of a new market leading PLL chip set. The HMC983LP5E DC to 7 GHz Fractional-N divider and frequency sweeper and the HMC984LP4E digital phase-frequency detector and charge pump form a high performance PLL chip set solution targeted at PLL and frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) sweeper applications requiring ultimate performance.
Hittite's MMIC band pass filter chip tunes from 19 to 38 GHz with new tunable MMIC filter that occupies only 3 mm2. This analog voltage tuned, solid state MMIC filter is insensitive to environmental conditions, and represents a space saving alternative to mechanically tuned and MEMS based filter solutions.
PMI Model P2T-18G40G-65-R-292FF is a single pole, two throw, solid-state switch which operates over the 18 to 40 GHz frequency range. This model provides 55 dB of isolation over the entire frequency range of operation and offers low insertion loss performance with fast switching speeds.
Skyworks Solutions has introduced a high power series PIN diode for transmit and receive switching applications. The SMP1325-087LF is a discrete solution available in a high-thermal dissipative package – making it ideal for large signal switching and attenuation applications.
