Keysight Technologies Inc. announced the availability of its Method of Implementation (MOI) document for USB 2.0 connector and cable assembly compliance testing using the ENA Series network analyzer’s enhanced time domain analysis option (E5071C-TDR). USB 2.0 remains popular for car navigation systems and other applications where a 480 Mbps or less transfer rate is just enough.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a 6 GHz GaN SPDT switch supporting commercial and military radar, communications, EW, and general purpose applications handling pulsed power levels up to 100 W. TGS2355-SM insertion loss is <1.1 dB yet typical isolation is >40 dB. Switching speed for the TGS2355-SM is in the order of 50 nS.
Custom MMIC announces the addition of the CMD195, a new DC-20 GHz non-reflective SPDT switch, to their growing line of control products. The CMD195 operates across the DC to 20 GHz bandwidth with an insertion loss of 2.5 dB that reduces to 2 dB as the frequency increases. The terminated switch has an isolation of greater than 40 dB and port return losses less than -15 dB.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high performance RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products, announced its MAMX-011023 low noise active mixer is available for sampling immediately. The anticipated market arrival of the 4 to 23 GHz MAMX-011023 discrete mixer gives system designers unrivaled flexibility to target a wide range of applications with a single mixer component.
Keysight Technologies Inc. introduced the industry’s highest bandwidth and lowest noise oscilloscope probe for making power integrity measurements to characterize DC power rails. The new Keysight N7020A power-rail probe specifications are tailored for a wide variety of DC power-rail measurements. Probe specifications include very low noise, a large ± 24-V offset range and 2-GHz bandwidth.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a 6 GHz GaN SPDT switch supporting communications, EW, Radar and general purpose applications handling power levels up to 40 W. The TGS2354-SM from TriQuint is packaged as a 4 x 4 mm QFN while the TGS2354 offers similar performance in DIE for hybrid applications. Switching speed for both is in the order of 50 nS.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for TriQuint’s TGM3015-SM, a 3 x 3 mm QFN packaged GaN transistor offering 10 W P3dB. Linear power gain is up to 17.1 dB within the 0.03 to 3.0 GHz bandwidth of this device. PAE3dB of the TGM3015-SM is >62% which typifies TriQuint GaN efficiency.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a pair of 5 GHz power amplifiers designed for 802.11a/n/ac WLAN applications. TriQuint’s TQP5523 and TQP5525 are fully integrated modules with internal matching on both input and output ports. Both TriQuint devices run off 3.3 or 5 V Vcc and integrate a temperature compensated bias network.
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.
