Rohde & Schwarz has been continuously enhancing its R&S IQR100 digital I/Q data recorder. A new firmware update now provides users with a data rate of nearly 100 Msample/s instead of the original 66 Msample/s. The R&S IQR100 digital I/Q data recorder from Rohde & Schwarz can now record, store and play I/Q signals with bandwidths up to 79.6 MHz -- loss-free in realtime.
Crane Aerospace & Electronics introduces its Interpoint® MFX SeriesTM 50 W DC-DC converter. The newly designed MFX Series provides up to 50 W in a 0.92 cubic inch case with efficiency over 90%. The input voltage of 16 to 50 volts can also withstand transients of 80 volts for one second, has ±10% trimmable 3.3 and 5 volt outputs and operates -55°C to +125°C.
Analog Devices, Inc. introduced the industry’s first sigma-delta converter with a fully integrated true rail-to-rail input buffer providing system designers with the industry’s leading noise performance at up to 250 kSPS throughput. The AD7175-2 A/D sigma-delta converter delivers 24 noise-free bits at 20 SPS and 17.2 noise-free bits at 250 kSPS providing designers a wider dynamic range
The ADF5355 allows implementation of fractional-N or integer-N phase-locked loop (PLL) frequency synthesizers when used with an external loop filter and an external reference frequency. The wideband microwave VCO design permits frequency operation from 6.8 to 13.6 GHz at one radio frequency (RF) output. Control of all on-chip registers is through a simple 3-wire interface.
The ADF4355-2 allows implementation of fractional-N or integer-N phase-locked loop (PLL) frequency synthesizers when used with an external loop filter and an external reference frequency. ADF4355-2 has an integrated VCO with a fundamental output frequency ranging from 3400 MHz to 6800 MHz. The VCO frequency is connected to divide by 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, or 64 circuits.
MECA Electronics announces its latest low PIM terminations with industry leading -165dBc (typical) passive intermodulation. All our low PIM terminations cover 698 to 2700 MHz frequency bands. Ideal for IDAS / ODAS, in-building, base station, wireless infrastructure, 4G, and AWS applications. VSWR = 1.10:1 (typical).
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a dual channel digital variable gain amplifier. TriQuint’s TQC9311 offers the lowest noise figure for any currently available dual channel DVGA. The low noise figure of 3.8 dB makes the TQC9311 ideal for use before a mixer in small cell and DAS applications. Covering 0.4 to 3.6 GHz, the TriQuint TQC9311 complies with 1.8 or 3.3 V logic.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for two SP4T RF switches from Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation. The PE42542 and PE42543 are HaRP™ technology-enhanced absorptive SP4T RF switches that operate from 9 kHz to 18 GHz and are designed for use in test/ATE, microwave and other wireless applications.
Custom MMIC is pleased to announce the release of the CMD196, a DC-28 GHz, non-reflective, SPDT switch in die form, to their growing line of control products. Covering DC to 28 GHz, the CMD196 features low insertion loss of 1.75 dB, high isolation of 46 dB, and port return losses better than -15 dB at 14 GHz.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support fora 50 W, surface mount, directional coupler serving 14.5 to 19.7 GHz applications. The EMC Technology DN05Z15F provides a 15 dB coupling factor with only 0.5 dB insertion loss in the main band of 15 to 19 GHz. Directivity is a strong, 28 dB min. Maximum VSWR in the DN05Z15F main band is 1.3:1. As a purely passive device, reliability is assured.
