Custom MMIC is offering a new device from their growing MMIC library of standard products. The CMD173 is a wideband GaAs MMIC distributed amplifier die for applications from DC to 20 GHz. This device delivers greater than 15 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +18 dBm, and a noise figure of 1.5 dB at 8 GHz.
PMI Model No. PIA-10G-CD-1 is a 10 GHz integrated, dielectric resonator (DRO) module with three outputs, each having a 0 to 360 degree analog controlled, variable phase shifter and 0 to 10 dB analog controlled, variable output control capability on each of the outputs. This model provides a low harmonic output of -50 dBc typical and an output power level of +19 dBm typical.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for TriQuint Semiconductor’s TQP3M9036, internally matched, low noise amplifier combining a 0.45 dB noise figure with 19 dB gain and 35 dBm OIP3 in a 2 x 2 mm DFN package.
A product must pass the USB Implementers Forum's compliance tests (USB-IF compliance program). Rohde & Schwarz meets this need with the R&S RTO-K21 USB 2.0 compliance test software for its R&S RTO high-performance oscilloscope. This software offers scenarios for testing USB 2.0 devices (DUT) when functioning as a device, host or hub.
RFMD’s new RFHA104x series of high-power GaN broadband power transistors (BPTs) are optimized for military communications, commercial wireless infrastructure, and general purpose applications. These high-performance amplifiers achieve high power with high efficiency and flat gain over a broad frequency range in a single amplifier design.
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC3864, a high voltage step-down DC/DC controller that draws only 40 µA quiescent current in standby mode with the output enabled in Burst Mode® operation. The 3.5 to 60 V input supply range is designed to protect against high voltage transients, to operate continuously during automotive cold crank and covers a broad range of input sources and battery chemistries.
RFMD's RFCA1008 is a high performance InGaP HBT MMIC amplifier designed with the InGaP process technology for excellent reliability. The heterojunction increases breakdown voltage and minimizes leakage current between junctions. A Darlington configuration is utilized for broadband performance.
Hittite Microwave Corp., the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets, has released a new receiver (Rx) and transmitter (Tx) radio frequency integrated circuit (RFIC) chipset. Both the HMC1190LP6GE and HMC1197LP7FE are ideal for frequency conversion applications in wireless infrastructure equipment such as base transceiver stations, remote radio units, small cells and repeaters from 700 to 3500 MHz.
The parts in RFMD’s new RF73xx series of high-power, high-efficiency linear power amplifiers are designed for use as the final amplification stage in 3 V, 50 Ω LTE mobile cellular equipment developed for E-UTRAN/LTE band operation. These parts are developed for 5 to 20 MHz LTE channel bandwidths.
Linear Technology Corporation introduces the LTC4226, a dual Hot Swap™ controller, enabling safe board insertion into live 4.5 to 44 V backplanes. The LTC4226 controls external N-channel MOSFETs to gently power up the board, avoiding sparks, connector damage and system glitches. A dual rate fault timer protects the MOSFET and system from long or damaging overcurrents.
