RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Skyworks SMV2026 series of hyperabrupt tuning varactor diodes. The SMV2026-079LF is offered in the SC-79 package while a smaller, SOD-882 package if available for space constrained layouts. Low series resistance of 0.5 ohm at 5 V typifies this Skyworks varactor series and enables low phase noise in wideband VCO designs.
eSeries connectors are characterized by their physical appearance and innovative cable-to-connector transition style. Externally, eSeries connectors have an extended ferrule designed to protect a common failure point at the solder-wick line when cables are flexed repeatedly. To solve a common problem of brass coupling nuts "walking off," these connectors also feature a new, failure-proof coupling nut.
Rogers Corp. advanced circuit materials division launched COOLSPAN® thermally & electrically conductive adhesive (TECA) film providing reliable high temperature performance. COOLSPAN TECA film is a thermosetting, epoxy based, silver filled adhesive film used to bond circuit boards to heavy metal backplanes, heat sink coins and RF module housings.
Cernex’s CBF series band pass filter is primarily used for narrow band applications. Pass bands are typically from 1% to 4%. The CBF series band pass filter can be designed from 3 to 170 GHz up to 30% bandwidths in 16 waveguide bands. Insertion losses are typically in the 0.8 dB to 2.0 dB area depending upon rejection levels.
Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) is a complete software suite for today’s complex communication systems that enables engineers to design the right system architecture and formulate suitable specifications for each of the underlying components. VSS is built upon Unified Data Model™ architecture (as is Microwave Office®) and therefore provides for seamless system and circuit level co-simulation.
Anritsu Co. announces it has developed the wireless industry’s first PTCRB-approved protocol test case for IMS Emergency Services. This critical test case is now available on the ME7834L Protocol Conformance Test (PCT) and Carrier Acceptance Test (CAT) system. Anritsu recently became the only supplier of approved test cases for this increasingly relevant technology during the PVG#64 meeting held in Beijing.
SemiGen Inc., an ISO and ITAR registered RF/Microwave assembly, automated PCB manufacturing, and RF Supply Center, offers PIN diodes that feature low capacitance and resistance, high reliability, and easy bonding with F.A.C. mesas.
The Reliant SwitchTM is a 1×6 bidirectional coaxial switch with an operating frequency from DC to 26.5 GHz, which covers the typical 6 GHz test range and beyond for high-speed testing. This switch is designed with a high isolation of 100 dB (up to 4 GHz) to maintain RF consistency between port-to-port testing and can sustain a guaranteed insertion loss repeatability of 0.03 dB across the entire frequency band.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a select group of new low-cost products for wireless infrastructure and Aerospace & Defense applications from Skyworks Solutions, Inc. Devices include LNAs with ultra-low noise figures of 0.23 dB, as well as PAs offering 2 W P1 dB and +25 dBm linear Pout, and switches handling up to 150 W input power.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the PE4312, 6-bit digital step attenuator from Peregrine Semiconductor. The PE4312 is designed for use in wireless infrastructure, portable radios and broadband infrastructure applications from 1 MHz to 4 GHz. Key features include excellent attenuation accuracy +/- (0.15 + 2% of attn at 2.2 GHz) and low insertion loss.
