Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for two new digital-to-analog converters (DACs)from Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI). The AD9119 and AD9129 are high performance, 11-/14-bit RF DACs that support data rates up to 2.8 GSPS. The devices are based on a quad-switch architecture that enables dual-edge clocking operation.
STL filters offer outstanding signal separation without compromising signal strength or noise figure. Passband loss is typically 8 db or less; rejection is over 80 dbc.Experience virtual private band use in congested areas. Wideband filters cover 100% of the STL band, while narrowband versions can be less than 600 kHz wide.
This high-frequency true elliptic function highpass filter offers a nominal passband insertion loss of 0.7 dBa at 5.2 to 13 GHz. This superior rejection provides 20 dB at 4.9 GHz, and -40 dB nominal DC to 4.8 GHz, with a 3 dB cutoff at 5.15 GHz. Performance is comparable to a suspended substrate, but at one-quarter the size and cost.
Integrated Microwave Corporation offers an ultra-high performance ceramic 9-pole filter with center frequency (CF) of 2017 MHz, and bandwidth of 360 MHz. Power handling capability is 35 W CW, and 100W peak. Low PIM, microphonics and excellent out-of-band rejection make this filter ideal for wide range applications.
Anritsu Company announces the availability of LTE Advanced Carrier Aggregation (CA) Measurement Software for its MT8820C RF tester, enabling analysis of leading-edge mobile devices incorporating the new ultra-fast technology evolution. The new option leverages the ParallelPhone Mode (PPMTM) dual-RF capability of the MT8820C to simulate inter-band and intra-band downlink frequency domain duplex (FDD) CA with call processing.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a new line of microwave absorbing materials from MAST Technologies. These “tuned frequency” absorbers are electrically optimized for specific applications and intended for customers who experience high frequency cavity resonance effects or high frequency EMI emissions above 18 GHz.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT3007, the latest member in a family of high voltage, micro power, robust PNP-based LDOs, featuring an ultralow 3µA quiescent current. The LT3007’s high input voltage capability, spanning 2.0 to 45 V with an adjustable output voltage ranging from 0.6 to 44.5 V, enables operation in a wide variety of application spaces.
The Anaren Integrated Radio (AIR) module A2530R24x has been proven to be fully compatible with the popular NanoStack 2.0 6LoWPAN protocol stack and NanoService embedded Web service software products for 2.4 GHz radio applications from Sensinode (Oulu, Finland). This AIR module was developed to simplify development of wireless applications intended to be compliant for the ZigBee® standard, but the module's ability to run and support NanoStack and NanoService is also an important option for customers.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for three new high-performance bulk acoustic wave (BAW) RF bandpass filters from TriQuint. The new BAW bandpass filters offer low insertion loss, high attenuation, greater power handling and temperature stability, and superior signal selectivity, making them ideally-suited for base station, repeaters, and other wireless infrastructure applications.
A next generation, “size matters” 1 kW power amplifier from Empower RF Systems, already deployed at a customer site overseas, had its operating software and user interface successfully updated via a software patch that was downloaded from a secure web portal and installed with a USB drive inserted directly into the back panel of the amplifier.
