The ultra-wideband recorder from Aaronia provides up to 20GHz of real-time bandwidth with up to several days of streaming storage at full bandwidth in a single solution. It covers a broad frequency range from 9 kHz to 20 GHz for critical wide-bandwidth applications. The Aaronia UWB dramatically reduces the cost of wideband signal capture, record, and analysis.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a plastic GaN transistor from Qorvo. The TGF2978-SM provides 20 W of saturated power from 8 to 12 GHz for various applications including marine and weather radar, military radar and avionics. Operational to very low frequency, the recommended bias voltage is 32 V. The TGF2978-SM provides >46% PAE and small signal gain of >11 dB at mid X-band frequencies.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a digital step attenuator (DSA). The Qorvo RFSA3623 offers 6-bits of attenuation with 0.25 dB LSB step size providing 15.75 dB of attenuation range from 5 to 6000 MHz. Featuring overshoot-free transient switching between attenuation steps, the RFSA3623 is ideal for wireless infrastructure, military radio, land mobile radio and access points.
Laser Services announced the purchase of a customized, fiber-guided, high power laser from TRUMPF. The specific features of the 2 kW YAG laser include: greater beam power for cutting highly reflective, non-ferrous materials such as copper and aluminum up to a ¼ inch thick; hole drilling as small as 8 mils; higher power efficiency for cooler operation; fewer moving parts and simpler solid state construction for reduced downtime.

RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Qorvo’s TQP9424, a 0.5 W power amplifier for small cell radios. Spanning the 2300 to 2400 MHz frequency band, this internally matched amplifier covers band 30 and band 40 wireless infrastructure applications. The TQP9424 has 36 dB of gain and -47 dBc ACLR at 27 dBm. Recommended supply voltage is 4.5 V with 470 mA current draw.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Southwest Antennas’ “cloverleaf” configuration of omni antennas. These antennas are 3 x smaller than existing solutions yet maintain similar antenna gain, efficiency and excellent radiation pattern control over the entire operational frequency band. Model 1032-024 is a right hand circular polarized (RHCP) Omni cloverleaf antenna with 2.3 to 2.5 GHz frequency band coverage and 1.2 dBi gain. Model 1032-025 is a left hand circular polarized (LHCP) antenna.
The R&S RTO2000 model with 6 GHz bandwidth allows developers to test the radio interfaces of 802.11ac WLAN components for IoT modules in the 5 GHz band as well as fast communications interfaces such as USB 3.1 Gen 1 with data rates of 5 Gbit/s. Thanks to its multi-domain functionality, only a single compact instrument is needed to analyze power supplies, processors and sensors with up to 6 GHz bandwidth.
Linear Technology introduces the LTC5566, a wideband, high dynamic range dual channel mixer with integrated programmable variable gain IF amplifiers. This dual mixer has a very wide, 300 MHz to 6 GHz input frequency range, specifically optimized and with extensive characterization at the emerging 3.6 and 4.5 GHz 5 G bands, as well as the established 4 G bands. The device supports bandwidths up to 400 MHz.
