With the belief that no single computational EM (CEM) method is capable of solving the whole spectrum of problems, EMSS introduces fully integrated finite difference time domain (FDTD) and multilevel fast multipole/physical optics (MLFMM/PO) hybrid solvers. FEKO’s Suite 7.0 release will take the next step toward a complete solution.
PMI Model No. P32T-0R5G18G-60-T-SFF is a high speed, single pole, thirty-two throw, absorptive switch that operates over 500 MHz to 18.0 GHz. This state-of-the-art switch offers top notch performance of 8.5 dB typical insertion loss and an isolation of 78 dB typically. The switch maintains 2.0:1 maximum VSWR over the full operating frequency with a maximum switching speed of 100 nsec.
RFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support fortwo “small cell” power amplifiers from TriQuint. The TQP2451 and TQP2453 support 1900 and 1800 MHz transmitter designs respectively. With average power output of 2.5 W, both devices include 3 gain stages, the final stage being a Doherty design for high peak power performance up to 20 W.
Pasternack Enterprises Inc. releases a new family of low noise amplifiers (LNA) capable of high gain and broadband performancebetween 9 KHz and 18 GHz which are widely used across the spectrum of military and commercial applications. In Pasternack’s release, a total of fourteen new low noise amplifiers are offered.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Peregrine Semiconductor’s PE33241, a high performance, flexible integer-N PLL capable of frequency synthesis up to 5 GHz. The PE33241 offers a low phase-noise floor FOM of -230 dBc/Hz, a 20 dB normalized phase noise improvement over previous generation PLLs.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for MiniRF’s 4-way splitter, model MRFSP0012. Covering the common CATV bandwidth of 5 to 1002 MHz, the MRFSP0012 replaces three, 2-way splitters commonly used to achieve a 1 to 4 split thus saving board space, reducing part count and offering easier design configuration.
