HUBER + SUHNER now offers 120 ohm databus cables for train communication networks (TCN). The new RADOX® databus 120 ohm EN use electron-beam crosslinked materials and are thus particularly well-suited for applications that involve high and low temperatures. In addition, the cables are halogen-free, flame resistant and produce very little smoke in case of fire.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a 75 Ω reverse path variable gain amplifier from M/A-COM Technology Solutions. The MAAM-011186 is an integrated two-stage differential amplifier operating from 5 to 300 MHz, with an embedded digital step attenuator (DSA) for CATV reverse path applications.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability for three ultra-fast 650 V NPT IGBTs. These transistors represent the newest generation of Microsemi IGBTs optimized for outstanding ruggedness and best trade-off between conduction and switching losses. They feature zero reverse recovery, low leakage, anti-parallel silicon carbide diodes, low saturation voltage, low tail current, and more.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a fully integrated PIN limiter / Schottky diode module in a surface-mount package. The Skyworks SKY16602-632LF provides passive receiver protection in wireless or other RF systems ranging in frequency from 200 MHz to 4 GHz. Capable of handling 100 W of pulsed power, the SKY16602-632LF has a very low threshold of approximately 5 dBm.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LTC2000, a 16-bit 2.5 Gsps digital-to-analog converter (DAC) with exceptional spectral purity of 74 dBc SFDR at 200 MHz output, and better than 68 dBc SFDR for output frequencies from DC to 1 GHz, a 12 dB improvement over alternative 14-bit DACs. The LTC2000 features low phase noise and a wide 2.1 GHz to 3 dB output bandwidth.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new 15 W X-band power amplifier from M/A-COM Technology Solutions. The MAAP-015036 is a two-stage GaAs MMIC PA operating from 8.5 to 10.5 GHz, with a saturated pulsed output power of +42 dBm and a large signal gain of 17 dB. The MAAP-015036 is available in die form.
The VC-709 crystal oscillator is a quartz stabilized, differential output oscillator, operating off a 2.5 or 3.3 volt supply in a hermetically sealed 5 x 7 mm ceramic package. Features include 187 fs, 12 kHz to 20 MHz ultra low jitter performance, 13.50 to 220.00 MHz output frequency, 0 ps deterministic jitter, 3rd OT crystal design, low power and more.
Metrigraphics announced it has developed an advanced process for applying metal layers to circuit substrates and to polyimide layers on multilayer circuits. The process works for both rigid and flexible circuits. Metallization layers can range in thickness from 10 microns to over 100 microns. Substrates can range up to 12” X 12” or 144 square inches.
The VX–805's phase noise is optimized for wireless base stations. Base station architectures are getting smaller and as they do, board densities are increasing. As a result, the phase noise performance of the transceiver VCXO is critical for these applications.
