Pasternack introduces a line of voltage variable attenuators offering up to 60 dB of attenuation across broad frequencies from 400 MHz to 18 GHz. This line of voltage variable attenuators is most commonly deployed in applications such as electronic warfare, instrumentation, point-to-point and point-to-multipoint radios, fiber optic and broadband telecom, microwave radio and VSAT, military radios, radar, ECM, SATCOM and sensors, and R&D.
RFMW Ltd. announces a 1 W linear amplifier targeting small cell base stations, repeaters and boosters. Operating from 1.8 to 2.7 GHz, the Qorvo TQP9113 provides up to 30.6 dBm P1dB with >27 dB of gain. With excellent linearity, OIP3 is measured at 41 dBm. The TQP9113 draws only 215 mA from a 5 V supply and integrates inter-stage matching and input matching with a shutdown mode for a less complicated design implementation and increased link range.
The HSX Series RF synthesizers are broadband CW sources providing industry leading phase noise and spectral purity performance. Phase coherent channel options of 10 MHz to 6 GHz, 12 GHz and 20 GHz can be loaded in any combination within the 1U form factor at 1 to 4 independently tunable channels. The dynamic range is +20 dBm to -110 dBm with channel-channel isolation of better than -140 dBc.
The HX-171 is a high stability oven controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO) and is the latest addition to the high temperature oscillator family. Utilizing Vectron’s proprietary crystal designs and state of the art correction algorithms, the HX-171 is achieving a stability of +/-5 ppb over the extended temperature range of -40°C to 150°C. This OCXO offers aging performances of +/-1.5 ppb/day and is specifically designed for extreme environmental conditions.
Southwest Antennas’ small form factor IEEE 802.11g/n Wi-Fi / ISM Band panel antenna is designed for applications in the 2.4 to 2.5 frequency band. Measuring only half an inch thick, this antenna is ideal for use as a stand-alone solution for providing Wi-Fi / ISM band coverage within a building or other structure while remaining unobtrusive. This product can also be integrated into other products and enclosures.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for two series of DC/DC converters from RECOM Power Inc. (RECOM). The RKZ-xx2005D and RxxP22005D series are especially designed for SiC MOSFET driver applications with harsh environmental requirements. The DC/DC converters are available with input voltages of 5, 12, 15 or 24VDC, with two asymmetric outputs of +20 VDC and -5 VDC.
Linear Technology announces the LTC6433-15, a wideband 15 dB gain block amplifier offering outstanding linearity of 47 dBm OIP3 (output third order intercept) and 3.22 dB noise figure at 150 MHz. The amplifier has excellent OP1dB (output 1dB compression point) of 19.2 dBm. The LTC6433-15 is uniquely different from other gain block amplifiers that are typically built using GaAs or pHEMT processes. These FET technologies have high 1/f noise corners on the order of 20 to 30 MHz.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the RF circulator isolator, (RFCI) model RFCR8801 circulator. The RFCR8801 covers the full S-band (2-4GHz) in a drop-in package configuration. Broadband performance is outstanding with typical insertion loss <0.5 dB and >19 dB isolation. Forward power handling is rated at 50 W average and 500 W peak. Reverse power handling is 30 W CW.
AtlanTecRF launched a range of dual channel loop test translators designed to provide a comprehensive test and quality monitoring facility in satellite communications ground stations and teleports. The ALD series of LTTs, available for operation in both Ka and Ku bands, feature simultaneous translation of transmit (Tx) frequencies to L-band and L-band to receive (Rx) frequencies thereby enabling uplink and downlink parameters to be evaluated at the same time and with one instrument.
Rogers Corp. introduces RO4730G3™ UL 94 V-0 antenna-grade laminates to meet present and future performance requirements in active antenna arrays and small cells, notably in 4G base transceiver stations (BTS) and Internet of Things (IoT) applications as well as emerging 5G wireless systems.These flame-retardant (per UL 94V-0), thermoset laminate materials are an extension of Rogers’ dependable RO4000® circuit materials.
