RFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support for Peregrine Semiconductor’s 2-bit, fast-switching digital step attenuator (DSA). The PE43205 offers 29 nS switching time when transitioning between 6, 12 or 18 dB of attenuation. Specified from 35 MHz to 6 GHz, the PE43205 offers IIP3 of 61 dBm for highly linear, wide dynamic range circuits.
Linear Technology announces the LTC6091 and LTC6090-5, additions to the LTC6090 family of precision operational amplifiers which operate on a supply voltage up to 140 V (±70 V). The dual LTC6091 features separate output disable pins, making it useful in high voltage multiplexed applications. The decompensated single LTC6090-5 amplifier offers higher speed and is stable at a gain of 5 or above.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for adual-band SAW filter module from TriQuint. TheTQQ1212 serves band 34 (2010 to 2025 MHz) and band 39 (1880 to 1920 MHz) in a single, 4x3 mm module. Band 34 passband bandwidth is 15 MHz while band 39 has a 40 MHz bandwidth. Insertion loss in both bands is 3.8 dB max.
Dow-Key Microwave Corp. presents its 511H-Series high power T-switch which has been qualified and supplied to various domestic and international space programs for both military and commercial use. The 511H-Series design is offered with 1.5 kW peak power at UHF, 300 W peak power both at L-Band and S-Band, and 200 W peak power at C-Band.
San-tron has announced the launch of their new website that features a robust product finder, which pulls from San-tron’s extensive library of RF and microwave coaxial connectors and adapters, as well as a simple, user-friendly cable assembly builder. Both tools feed into their new “My Quote” system, which allows multiple products to be added at once including a new custom quote option.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Peregrine Semiconductor’s new, adjustable power limiter providing protection for up to 50 W pulsed RF input. For CW applications, the PE45140 handles up to 10 W of power. The adjustable power limiting threshold, from +22 to +32 dBm, enables flexibility across different platforms and architectures.
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTM8046, a 2.5 W output DC/DC µModule® (micromodule) converter with 2 kVAC galvanic isolation (production tested to 3 kVDC) in a 9 mm x 15 mm x 4.92 mm ball grid array (BGA) package. A minimum creepage distance of 4.3 mm on the package exterior supports operation at a working voltage up to 400 VRMS in a pollution degree 2 environment.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new 650 V, 20 A silicon carbide (SiC) Schottky diode from Cree Inc. Benefits of the CVFD20065A include the option of replacing bipolar with unipolar rectifiers, essentially no switching losses, the reduction of heat sink requirements, and the ability to have parallel devices without thermal runaway.
AR Modular RF has completed production on the KAW5050. It is a Class AB wideband RF power amplifier system delivering up to 1000 W PEP power into a 50 ohm load over the frequency range of 225 to 400 MHz.This custom system comprises a power amplifier, controller subsystem and AC power supply unit encased in a 3 RU shelf. The amplifier is being used in a base station application and can be operated and monitored remotely via RS232 or Ethernet control.
The multicoax solution MXP offers an attractively priced 18 Gbps /18 GHz as well as a high-end 40 Gbps / 40 GHz version in a very small form factor. With reliable mating and ease of use that make them both especially suited to bench-top and system testing, the solutions can also be used as an interconnect within automated semiconductor test equipment.
