They feature infinite load VSWR protection and a minimum of 50% power added efficiency.
MACOM, a leading supplier of high performance RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products announced a high power PIN diode SP3T switch in a common anode configuration, operating from 30 MHz to 3 GHz. The MASW-011030 is designed for military and civilian customers who require higher CW and pulsed power operation for radio applications.
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC4079, a 60 V, constant-current/constant-voltage 250 mA multi-chemistry battery charger. The device’s low quiescent current linear topology offers a simple inductorless design and accepts a wide 2.7 to 60 V input voltage range. The charge current is adjustable from 10 to 250 mA with an external resistor.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings Inc. (“MACOM”) announced a fully monolithic broadband surface mount bias network utilizing MACOM’s patented HMIC process. The MABT-011000 is designed for customers who need a rugged HMIC device with low loss and high performance with exceptional repeatability through millimeter frequencies.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for three converters from Analog Devices Inc. The new devices include a digital-to-analog converter (AD9144), an analog-to-digital converter (AD9625), and a dual analog-to-digital converter (AD9680). All of the devices are suitable for a range of applications.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced the availability of its Method of Implementation (MOI) document for USB 2.0 connector and cable assembly compliance testing using the ENA Series network analyzer’s enhanced time domain analysis option (E5071C-TDR). USB 2.0 remains popular for car navigation systems and other applications where a 480 Mbps or less transfer rate is just enough.
Skyworks Solutions Inc. unveils a single control, SOI, single-pole-double-throw switch. The compact, 0.01 to 6.0 GHz SKY13453-385LF is intended for mode switching in pre-power amplifier cellular and dual-band WLAN transmit/receive applications. It is a reflective short switch that offers high linearity, maintains low insertion loss and achieves high isolation for both switching paths.
Pasternack announces eight new high power linear amplifiers that provide accurate signal amplification across a multitude of commercial and defense applications such as communications, radar and sensors, test instrumentation, and many others. These GaAs PHEMT MMIC-based amplifiers operate from 0.8 to 9.5 GHz and can be used as high power output amplifiers or driver amplifiers.
A range of ultra wide band amplifiers with frequency coverage from 10 MHz to 30 GHz has just been released by AtlanTecRF. Designed to be both economical and versatile, the amplifiers include a model to operate over 0.05 to 20.0 GHz in one unit with 24 dB gain, +23 dBm output power and less than 4 dB noise figure, while another spans 12.0 to 30.0 GHz with 30 dB gain, and +20 dBm output power.
