Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability from stock and full design support capabilities for a fastPack 0 SiC power module from Vincotech. The 10-PC094PB065ME01-L637F06Y is a faster, cooler and more efficient power module designed for switching frequencies up to 400 kHz. It features a fast-switching 900 V SiC MOSFET that outperforms 1200 V SiC MOSFETs (+8% efficiency at a light load and +3% at full load) and provides a higher safety margin than 650 V MOSFETs.
Pasternack debuts lines of waveguide bends operating from 5.85 to 90 GHz across 12 frequency bands (from C band to W band). These waveguide bends are commonly used in applications such as instrumentation, test benches, high efficiency RF, microwave and mm-wave transmissions, SATCOM, MILCOM, radar and telecom. Pasternack’s in-stock and ready-to-ship waveguide bends boast low loss and VSWR as low as 1.08:1.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the API Weinschel 7006-1 DC block. The 7006-1 is an ‘inside’ DC block containing capacitance in-series with the center conductor to prevent the flow of DC current while permitting RF power to flow uninterrupted. The 7006-1 passes RF from 9 kHz to 20 GHz with an SWR of 1.3:1. API Weinschel rates the power handling at 20 W averages and 100 W peak. Maximum DC voltage is 50 V.
JQL Electronics introduces a high performance SMT millimeter wave circulator / isolator series designed for 5G network. The SMT microstrip solutions are true surface mount with no need of any additional biased steel plate for installation. The solution covers 18, 28 and 40 GHz bands, with up to 20 dB isolation, 0.7 dB insertion loss. Custom design microstrip isolators / circulator is available from 5 to 40 Ghz.
The OX-400/401 and the MD-403 are the latest additions to the OCXO extended temperature range product family. Stabilities of +/-5 ppb (OX-400/401) and an uncorrected stability of +/-10 ppb (MD-403) are achieved while operating across a temperature range of -40° to 95°C. These OCXOs are ideal for applications in uncontrolled environments where operating temperatures can exceed the industrial temperature range.
Exodus Dynamics introduces the EDPLO-3030 series phase locked oscillator. The highly stable internally phase locked PLDRO is manufactured in a 2.25 x 2.25 x 0.65" low profile housing designed to meet harsh environments. The EDPLO-3030 series cover single frequencies of 30 MHz to 50 GHz with an output power up to +25 dBm. The units are single biased with +12 VDC generating a frequency stability of +/-0.2 ppm over -40° to +70°C.
Exodus introduces the AMP1064 module covering the entire instantaneous 20 to 6000 MHz frequency range at 20 W CW minimum and 25 W CW typical with flatness of less than 4 dB peak to peak. Using State of the Art GaN devices and operating from a 50 VDC source at less than 3 Amp consumption this module is suitable for use with all single channel modulations standards and applications requiring high power and ultra-wide band coverage.
The OX-407 low g-sensitivity oven controlled crystal oscillator is housed in a compact 14 x 20 mm dual inline package with g-sensitivity performance as low as 0.07 ppb/g. Covering the frequency range of 10 to 50 MHz and a phase noise floor of -150 dBc at 100 kHz offsets, this OCXO provides design engineers with limited board space a small form factor alternative without sacrificing overall performance in their design.
The VT-860 temperature compensated crystal oscillator is housed in a small form factor 2.0 mm x 1.6 mm x 0.7 mm package. This TCXO produces a stability of +/-0.5 ppm across the industrial temperature range of -40oC to 85oC and offers a frequency range of 13 to 52 MHz. Tight stability TCXOs are a core component in enabling precision location services. The VT-860 delivers high stability in a compact low power design, making it ideal for a wide range of GNSS applications.
