Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the industry’s first power device analyzer for circuit design. The Agilent B1506A is a single-box solution that automatically characterizes all power device parameters across a wide range of operating conditions and temperatures (-50° C to +250° C), at up to 1500 amps and 3 kV.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced a series of enhancements for its MXA and EXA X-Series signal analyzers. The enhancements are ideal for engineers performing wireless communications and general-purpose testing at various phases of the product life cycle, from R&D and design verification to manufacturing and installation.
The SemiGen SLP7100 series of limiter diodes is processed with a high-resistivity epi that has thin, intrinsic layers. These devices are typically in the 2 to 20 micron range of epi thickness and can be gold-doped to achieve specific performance goals. They are used in passive or active limiter designs in the 100 MHz to 30 GHz frequency range.
At the heart of the digital attenuation solution is a series of USB/TTL controlled MMIC digital attenuators and Ethernet controlled rack mountable subsystems that are suitable for a multitude of RF and microwave applications up to 6 GHz. The USB/TTL controlled MMIC digital attenuators, Model 4205 Series, are available in three attenuation configurations.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for two DC-3.5 GHz power transistors from TriQuint. Available in either a flanged or earless Gemini package as the T1G4020036-FL and T1G4020036-FS respectively, the devices provide two independent 120 W paths. Linear gain measures 16 dB at 2.9 GHz. A low thermal resistance base material supports applications in RADAR, communications and avionics.
The LTC3114-1 is a synchronous, current-mode buck-boost converter that delivers up to 1 A of continuous output current from a wide range of power sources, including single-cell Li-Ion, 24 / 28 V industrial rails and 40 V automotive inputs. The LTC3114-1’s 2.2 to 40 V input and 2.7 to 40 V output range provides a regulated output.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced two new high-performance portable oscilloscope series deploying next-generation oscilloscope technology. The Infiniium S?Series sets a new standard for signal integrity for bandwidths up to 8 GHz, while the InfiniiVision 6000 X-Series sets a new standard for price/performance with bandwidths up to 6 GHz.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the InfiniiMax III+ differential probes, a new generation of 4-, 8- and 13-GHz differential active probes for general-purpose, high-speed differential bus probing. The company also introduced new QuickTip accessories for InfiniiMax probes to help engineers make quick and reliable measurements.
Ideally suited for commercial and military S-band radar applications Richardson RFPD Inc. announces full design support capabilities and immediate availability of four new gallium nitride on silicon carbide (GaN on SiC) power amplifiers (PAs) from TriQuint. The new S-band amplifiers are fabricated on TriQuint’s production 0.25 μm GaN on SiC process (TQGaN25).
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LTC2107, a 16-bit 210 Msps high performance high-speed analog-to-digital converter (ADC) for high-end communications receivers and instrumentation applications. The LTC2107 has superior AC performance specifications, achieving 80 dB SNR performance, 4 dB higher than alternative products, and industry leading 98 dB SFDR at baseband.
