RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support forAmpleon’s BLM8G0710S-30PBG, a dual section, 2-stage power MMIC targeted as a general purpose driver or final stage amplifier in white space or ISM applications in the 700 to 1000 MHz frequency range. The BLM8G0710S-30PBG offers >51% typical drain efficiency and offers on-chip matching for ease of use. Ampleon designers integrate internal ESD protection for enhanced reliability.
Exodus introduces AMP1124 which provides a typical output power of 100 W P1dB and 200 W Psat across 0.7-4.2 GHz frequency band. Using the latest in State of the Art GaN devices, gain flatness is 4.0 dB peak to peak and requires 32 V at 40 A Max. Suitable for use with all modulations standards requiring high power and wide band coverage.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced the availability of a new method of implementation (MOI) document for cable assembly compliance tests defined in Rev. 1.1 of the USB Type-C specification and Rev. 1.0 of the USB Type-C compliance test specification (CTS). M937xA PXIe Multiport VNA provides true multiport measurements with full N-port calibration and an inherent frequency domain measurement capability.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for API Technologies’ 345C single channel rotary joint. API rotary joints are used to transmit RF energy from a stationary RF source to a rotating RF line and find applications in military and commercial markets such as mobile satellite communication systems, radar systems including civil air traffic control, weather radars or anywhere rotational force might damage a transmission line.
NI announced the NI PXIe-4081 7½-digit high-performance DMM and 1.8 MS/s isolated digitizer. The NI PXIe-4081 is the first PXI Express DMM available. It offers engineers the flexibility, resolution and isolation needed to tackle challenging applications that require smarter test systems. The NI PXIe-4081 is the industry’s most accurate 7½-digit DMM, with an industry-leading 15 ppm accuracy for DC V measurements up to two years after calibration.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a transformer from MiniRF. The MiniRF MRFXF0025 is a 1:1 impedance ratio, transmission line transformer covering a frequency range of 45 to 1200 MHz. Capable of supporting DOCSIS3.1 requirements, the MRFXF0025 is designed for applications that require superb gain balance. Characteristic impedance is 75 ohms and insertion loss ranges from 0.7 to 0.8 dB across the device band width.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the QPQ1291, a highly selective, low drift, BAW filter for full Band 41 TDD-LTE Tx/Rx. The Qorvo QPQ1291 has excellent WiFi rejection of 39 dB at WiFI channel 11, yet only 3.8 dB in-band insertion loss. Performance is rated over -20 to +85 degrees Celsius. Available in a RoHS compliant, 2.0 x 1.6 mm SMT package, return loss of the QPQ1291 is 9 dB.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a high linearity amplifier. The Qorvo TQP9421, internally matched small cell PA offers 27 dBm of linear power (-50 dBc ACLR) with 30 dB of gain. Drawing 450 mA from a 4.5 V supply, the TQP9421 lends itself towards distributed amplifier systems (DAS), small cell infrastructure and repeaters. The Qorvo TQP9421 is capable of 35.5 dBm P1dB from 2.11 to 2.17 GHz.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a selection of SDI video and optoelectronics products from M/A-COM Technology Solutions. MACOM’s SDI video products span a complete signal chain for an SDI link, including multi-rate equalizer and cable driver solutions for emerging ultra-high-definition (UHD) TV standards and legacy 3G, HD and SD.
Keysight EEsof EDA has released a series of five RF power amplifier (PA) design videos intended to provide engineers with the building blocks to design more complex PA classes (i.e., A, AB, B, F, E and J). For designers new to high-frequency PA circuit design, the series provides a good starting point for understanding the challenges involved with PA circuit design, while experienced designers will gain new and unique insight into the fundamentals.
