Further enhancing it’s offering of 40 GHz passive products, AtlanTecRF has introduced directional couplers with frequency capability up to 40 GHz in a number of bands including 18 to 40, 6 to 40, 2 to 40 and the ultra-wide band version 1 to 40 GHz. Each frequency range in the new AKC series is available in a choice of 10, 20 or 30 dB coupling.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new 0.2 to 1.0 GHz, N-connectorized low noise amplifier (LNA) from Wavelex.
Anritsu Co. announces that its ME7873L RF/RRM Conformance Test System has achieved the world’s first test platform approval criteria (TPAC) for LTE-advanced carrier aggregation (CA). This industry-leading achievement in the Global Certification Forum (GCF) enables wireless device manufacturers to implement certification of devices employing this new technology.
Renaissance Electronics has designed a high power divider that divides power from 6 to 18 dB across the output ports. Operating between 1100 and 1500 MHz, this 8-way divider has a footprint of 8” x 5”. The divider can handle 350 W peak and 35 W CW.
Renaissance has designed a high power drop-in Circulator for EW Jammer application. Covering 2.5 to 6 GHz, this isolator can handle 100 W of CW Power over -40 to +95 C. The design is covered under a US Patent that provides a broadband match and power handling using a unique steel housing.
The HMI AND HMC series broadband ferrite junction isolators and circulators are available from 18 to 120 GHz. They utilize a low loss H-plane structure in a modified Y-junction format to provide minimum loss with maximum isolation and bandwidth. 2 GHz bandwidths with 20 dB of isolation are standard. Wider bandwidth, high power handling and magnetic shielding are available in select units.
The AM1650DC834 directional coupler operates over a frequency range of 800 to 2500 MHz with 15 dB of coupling (+/-1 dB), 20 dB of directivity, 0.4 dB insertion loss, at least 35 dB of isolation, and intermodulation distortion of -140 dBc. It has a VSWR of 1.2:1 and handles 40 W CW. The coupler operates over a temperature range of -30o to +60o C, has Type-N connectors, and measures 4.2 x 1.4 x 0.9 in.
The AS36CN803 crystal notch filter has a center frequency of 36 MHz, low-side passband of -80 to -2 kHz, high-side passband of 2 to 80 kHz, insertion loss of 4 dB, ripple of 1 dB or less, and has a maximum input power of 10 dBm. The filter uses SMA female connectors.
Anatech’s AM836-881D177 ceramic duplexer has a Band 1 passband of 824 to 849 MHz, a Band 2 passband of 869 to 894 MHz, and insertion loss in either band of less than 3.3 dB. Return loss is greater than 13 dB, isolation is greater than 43 dB in Band 1 and greater than 60 dB in Band 2, and rejection ranges between 43 dB and 50 dB.
The AE600H9800 highpass filter has a cutoff frequency of 600 MHz and a passband of 2 to 10 GHz. Insertion loss at its center frequency is less than 2 dB, return loss is greater than 10 dB, rejection is at least 30 dB from DC to 932 MHz, and it is housed in a package measuring 1 x 0.7 5 x 0.243 in. The filter uses Type-N female connectors.
