GigOptix high-performance amplifier solutions enable transmission systems that enable industry leading high output power.
GigOptix provides a broad portfolio of MMIC amplifier designs including broadband amplifier MMICs covering DC to 50 GHz as well as high-frequency 70 and 80 GHz amplifier designs for E-band communication systems.
Linear Technology Corp.'s LTC3774 is a current-mode dual output synchronous step-down DC/DC controller that enables the use of very low DC resistance (DCR) power inductors by enhancing the current-sense signal. Power inductor DCRs down to 0.2 milliohms can be utilized to maximize converter efficiency (up to 95%), increase power density and reduce the output ripple voltage in high current applications.
Well-known for its comprehensive ranges of connectors and cable assemblies, AtlanTecRF has introduced its range of high grade, yet affordable, coaxial adapters in the popular SMA and Type N series of interconnects. Suitable for use to 18 GHz and in some cases to 26 GHz, these professional quality adapters are available from stock and feature materials well suited to commercial, defence and aerospace environments.
RFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support for the TGA2814, S-Band amplifier from TriQuint Semiconductor. The TGA2814 covers 3.1 to 3.6 GHz with up to 80 W pulsed Psat and power added efficiency as high as 56%. Using 0.25 um GaN technology, this two-stage amplifier provides 25 dB of gain while drawing only 125 mA from a 30 V source.
RFMW, Ltd. announces sales support fora USB controlled, RF, digital step attenuator from Telemakus. The TEA13000-12 is based on an analog circuit driven by a 16-bit ADC providing extremely fine control down to ~0.03 dB step size. This fine resolution of the TEA13000-12 is needed for applications requiring cancellation or automatic level control (ALC) functions.
