Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for two 24 W Psat (20 W P1dB) power amplifiers from Wavelex. The 50-ohm PAs operate from 925 GHz to 960 GHz, offer high gain, low gain flatness, and high power added efficiency. They are ideally suited for GSM, mobile infrastructure, and fixed wireless communication applications.
Custom MMIC is pleased to announce the addition of the CMD158C4, a new 6 to 16 GHz driver amplifier, to their growing standard product line. The CMD158C4 delivers 21 dB of gain across its bandwidth, while providing +21 dBm of saturated output power at a PAE of 24%. The CM158C4 operates from a single positive supply voltage of +5.0 V at 95 mA.
Pasternack Enterprises Inc., an industry-leading manufacturer and supplier of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, releases their 2014 RF product guide. The company’s latest 264 page catalog contains thousands of in-stock Pasternack products such as RF cable assemblies, an expanded portfolio of RF amplifiers, 60 GHz systems and modules and hundreds of other passive and active RF components.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new 22 to 38 GHz low noise amplifier from M/A-COM Technology Solutions. The MAAL-011111 is a three-stage GaAs MMIC LNA featuring a small signal gain of 19 dB with a noise figure of 2.5 dB. It is offered in a lead-free, 3 x 3 mm QFN package, does not need external components, and is self-biased.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced the industry’s first signal analyzer to provide swept and FFT-based capabilities in the PXI form factor. The Keysight M9290A CXA-m PXIe signal analyzer delivers fully specified performance up to 26.5 GHz and provides best-in-class specifications in key areas such as sensitivity and dynamic range.
HUBER + SUHNER now offers 120 ohm databus cables for train communication networks (TCNs). 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.
