Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for three 16 W power amplifiers from Wavelex. The 50-ohm, unconditionally stable PAs operate from a single DC power supply and cover 1805 to 1880, 1930 to 1990, and 2110 to 2170 MHz frequency ranges - common bands for test and measurement applications.
Keysight Technologies Inc. introduced the B2980A Series of femto/picoammeters and electrometers, the world’s first graphical picoammeters and electrometers to confidently measure down to 0.01 fA which is 0.01 x 10-15 A, and up to 10 petaohms (PΩ) which is 10 x 1015 ohms. The B2980A Series meters offers best-in-class performance, with a 2 pA to 20 mA operating range and an internal 1000 V source.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced the market’s first TRX module with four full-duplex RFIO ports and other firmware enhancements for the E6640A EXM wireless test set. The TRX module sets a new industry standard, allowing manufacturers to test up to four connected devices with identical RFIO performance and therefore achieve maximum production throughput.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability for a new solid state broadband high power amplifier from Empower RF Systems, Inc. The 2175/BBS2E4ARR is suitable for multi-octave bandwidth, high-power continuous wave, modulated, and pulsed applications. It utilizes high-power LDMOS devices that provide wide frequency response, high gain, high peak power capability, and low distortions.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Skyworks SKY13453-385LF, a single-pole, double-throw (SPDT), high isolation switch built using SOI technology. The SKY13453-385LF operates over a frequency range of 10 MHz to 6 GHz and can handle up to 2 W of RF input power. Offering high linearity of 57 dBm IP3 and low insertion loss of 0.4 dB, this switch serves T/R functions in applications from white space through dual-band WLAN.
