The VPC3475A magnetron transmitter is developed as a fully integrated magnetron system operating up to 320 kW peak power. This microwave transmitter uses a CPI coaxial magnetron as its RF output device. CPI BMD is able to furnish a compact, user-friendly, microwave power source which is also cost effective. CPI Beverly Microwave Division manufactures magnetron transmitters ranging from L-Band to Ka-Band and peak power from 1 kW to 1 MW.
Mini-Circuits’ ZX10-2-1252+ is a coaxial, ultra-wideband 2-way 0˚ splitter/combiner providing RF input power handling up to 1.85 W as a splitter and 0.7 dB insertion loss for an extremely wide range of applications from 1800 to 12500 MHz. Its outstanding combination of low loss and low unbalance make this model an excellent choice for distributing signals in systems where efficient transmission of signal power is needed.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for an image reject mixer from Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation. The PE41901 is a passive, double-balanced Ku-band image reject mixer with high dynamic range performance and high local oscillator (LO) isolation capable of operation up to 19 GHz. It can be used as an upconverter or a downconverter.
The VS-800 is the latest addition to our high frequency voltage controlled SAW oscillator (VCSO) family, packaged in a 5.0 x 3.2 x 1.8 mm3 making it the smallest ultra low-jitter VCSO available on the market. This VCSO is capable of achieving 6 fs rms jitter performance over the offset bandwidth of 12 kHz to 20 MHz. This product is ideal for emerging optical transport networks.
TEGAM, Inc. released a high power RF calibration system for directional power sensors and RF Wattmeters that is available from virtually all manufacturers including Bird Technologies. The system operates from 250 kHz to 3 GHz and up to 250 W with combined uncertainty less than 1%. This frequency range covers the ISM, land mobile radio and common mobile phone bands.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a driver amplifier designed to support HPA implementation from 13 to 18 GHz and providing 2 W of saturated output power. The Qorvo TGA2958-SM is compatible with GaN HPA bias conditions allowing it to run from the same supply as the high-power amplifier. The TGA2958-SM, 3-stage driver, has a small signal gain of >25 dB yet draws only 70 mA of CW bias.
Pasternack offers small form factor MMBX connectors and adapters most commonly used on circuit boards and their associated input/output connections for industrial, telecom and consumer product applications. These MMBX adapters and connectors offer a maximum operating frequency of 12.4 GHz, excellent VSWR of 1.06:1, mechanical misalignment tolerance of 4.5° (or 0.7mm) max and feature gold plated beryllium copper contacts.
SemiGen has added a series of limiter diodes to its expanding product offerings, SLP7100 series. The SLP7100 limiter diodes are processed with a high-resistivity epitaxial wafer (epi) that has thin intrinsic layers. These devices are 2 to 20 microns thick and can be gold doped to achieve specific performance goals. The SLP7100 limiter diodes are used in passive or active limiter designs in the 100 MHz to 30 GHz frequency ranges.
Empower RF is announcing wide availability of their field proven model 2185 high power pulsed amplifier operating from 960 to 1215 MHz at 10 KW Peak and duty cycles from 0.1 to 5%. This compact and versatile radar transmitting amplifier, with flexible operating modes, makes an ideal fit for radar component testing, advanced research, and system development. Because of its superior SWaP, it is also well suited for mobile EW.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability of a integrated, dual RF transceiver from Analog Devices, Inc. ADI's AD9371 is a highly-integrated, wideband RF transceiver offering dual channel transmitters and receivers, integrated synthesizers, and digital signal-processing functions. With a tuning range of 300 MHz to 6 GHz, 250 MHz signal bandwidth, and power consumption of less than 5 W under standard operating conditions.
