Pickering Interfaces announced the launch of a high-density 2 amp PXI relay module. 2 amp PXI relay module (model 40-100) – configured with 83 SPDT relays, this relay module was originally designed for applications in aerospace and defense requiring a higher density 2 amp alternative to Pickering’s current 52 SPDT Module (model 40-139).
Skyworks is pleased to introduce two SPDT 75 Ohm switches that are ideal for set-top box and DVR applications. The SKY13547-490LF and SKY13548-385LF feature ultra-high linearity and meet the rigorous requirements of DOCSIS 3.0/3.1 applications. They also boast very low insertion loss and high power handling capability. Skyworks’ new switches are fully integrated and internally matched, reducing bill of material costs for customers.
Exodus introduces the ultra-wide band AMP1074 compact SSPA coveringthe full 2 to 20 GHz frequency band at 10 W Min. The AMP1074 uses C&W hybrid GaN devices, and operates from a 32 VDC supply at 4.5 A with gain flatness of 5.0dB Max peak to peak. Covering multi-bands, this SSPA is suitable for use with all modulation standards and features a small form factor, lightweight construction and high reliability.
Rogers Corp. is pleased to introduce 92ML™ materials. These thermally enhanced laminates and prepregs are specifically engineered and manufactured to meet the demands of high power applications. 92ML materials are halogen-free, flame retardant, thermally conductive epoxy based prepreg and laminate systems. They provide a low-cost, lead-free solder compatible system with enhanced heat transfer characteristics.
Spectrum is pleased to make available a number of academic tools that can be used to learn the basics of waveform generation, acquisition and analysis. The tools are freely available for download on the Spectrum website and are designed so that they can be used by teachers and other educators for structured learning classes or by students who wish to follow a self-tutorial style process. The academic tools are also helpful for first time digitizer and AWG users.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the MiniRF MRFXF0024, a 1:1 impedance ratio, transmission line transformer covering frequencies from of 45 to 1200 MHz. Capable of supporting DOCSIS3.1 requirements, the MRFXF0024 is designed for applications requiring low loss and where noise figure (NF) concerns are critical. Characteristic impedance is 75 ohms and insertion loss ranges from 0.4 dB for return path applications to 0.6 dB for downstream circuits.
Z-Communications Inc. announces a RoHS compliant fixed frequency phase locked loop model RFS5900A-LF in the C-band. The RFS5900A-LF is a fully integrated synthesizer operating at 5900 MHz which is phase locked to a 10 MHz reference with a stability of ±2.5 ppm. This low cost PLL features a typical phase noise of -80 dBc/Hz, -85 dBc/Hz, and -103 dBc/Hz at the 1 kHz, 10 kHz and 100 kHz offsets, respectively.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Qorvo’s RFVC6405 voltage controlled oscillator. The RFVC6405 covers the full 2 to 4 GHz (S-band) in a single device with exceptional performance. Output phase noise is -90 dBc at 10 K offset (typ.) with second harmonic suppression of -15 dBc. With an output power of 0 dBm, the RFVC6405 draws 25 mA from a 5 V supply. Tuning voltage is 0 to 16 Vdc.
Vaunix Technology Corp. will be debuting two test applications, the LDA-203 and the LMS-802DX. The LDA-203 is a digital attenuator with an operating frequency of 1 to 20 GHz. It features a 0 to 63 dB attenuation range and a step size resolution of 0.5 dB. Cost is $1,199. The LMS-802DX is one of a new series of Lab Brick portable signal generators.
