This product release completes the family of X-band radar solutions for commercial radar and 5G communications markets. The AWMF-0106 is an integrated power amplifier; low noise amplifier, limiter, and T/R switch intended to provide a low noise, medium power front end for the Anokiwave AWS-0103 and AWS-0105 high Rx input linearity X-band core IC solutions.
Spectrum's Ethernet based digitizer products releases the Embedded Server option DN2.xxx-Emb. It can be ordered with any of the companies digitizerNETBOX series of LXI instruments. It effectively turns them into PC based data acquisition units that can operate independently or, when connected to a LAN, as parts of a larger system. The digitizerNETBOX family, with more than 30 different models, offers the widest choice of LXI based data acquisition capabilities.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the PE42723 UltraCMOS SPDT RF switch from Peregrine Semiconductor. Achieving -121 dBc second harmonic and -140 dBc third harmonic at 17 MHz, the PE42723 exceeds the linearity requirements of the DOCSIS 3.1 cable industry standard and enables a dual upstream/downstream band architecture in cable customer premises equipment (CPE) devices spanning 5 to 1794 MHz.
Barry Industries announces the introduction of an ultra-broadband, DC to 60 GHz chip termination for microwave applications. The TV0404FA-50R0JN-91 is a compact, 0404 (1.016 x 1.016 mm) size chip constructed of robust thick film on alumina with a wire-bondable input pad and epoxy or solderable ground. This 50 ohm impedance device is RoHS/REACH compliant and is rated at 250 mW on a 100°C mounting surface temperature.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for an AEC-Q200 qualified bulk acoustic wave (BAW) filter designed for 2.4 GHz WLAN/WiFi/blue tooth coexistence with 4G LTE and TD-LTE signals. The Qorvo 885071-A offers high rejection in adjacent bands B7, B38, B40 and B41 allowing these various technologies to operate simultaneously and in close proximity. Qorvo’s 885071-A has a usable bandwidth of 100 MHz (2400 to 2500 MHz).
The OX-208 is the latest addition to our precision OCXO high stability oscillator family. In a 25.4 x 25.4 mm footprint, this OCXO offers +/-0.8 ppb stability over the Industrial Temperature range, while also offering impressive phase noise performance over the frequency range of 5 MHz to 20 MHz. Features include frequency range: 5 to 20 MHz, temp stability: +/-0.4 ppb over 0 to 70o C, temp stability: +/-0.8 ppb over -40 to 85o C, package: 25.4 x 25.4 x 12.7 mm, aging: 0.15 ppb/day and phase noise: -155 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset.
Passive Plus Inc. offers a low ESR/ESL EIA capacitor series. These multi-layer capacitors have been developed for High-Q and microwave applications, exhibit NP0 characteristics, and are RoHS compliant. 0201N = .020” x .010”, 0402N = .040” x .020”, 0603N = .060” x .030”, 0805N = .080” x .050” and 1111N = .110” x .110.” Data sheets, along with S-Parameter and modeling data, for each of the case sizes are on the PPI website.
