Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new 22 to 38 GHz low noise amplifier from M/A-COM Technology Solutions. The MAAL-011111 is a three-stage GaAs MMIC LNA featuring a small signal gain of 19 dB with a noise figure of 2.5 dB. It is offered in a lead-free, 3 x 3 mm QFN package, does not need external components, and is self-biased.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced the industry’s first signal analyzer to provide swept and FFT-based capabilities in the PXI form factor. The Keysight M9290A CXA-m PXIe signal analyzer delivers fully specified performance up to 26.5 GHz and provides best-in-class specifications in key areas such as sensitivity and dynamic range.
HUBER + SUHNER now offers 120 ohm databus cables for train communication networks (TCNs). The new RADOX® DATABUS 120 OHM EN use electron-beam crosslinked materials, and are thus particularly well-suited for applications that involve high and low temperatures. In addition, the cables are halogen-free, flame resistant and produce very little smoke in case of fire.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a 75 Ω reverse path variable gain amplifier from M/A-COM Technology Solutions. The MAAM-011186 is an integrated two-stage differential amplifier operating from 5 to 300 MHz, with an embedded digital step attenuator (DSA) for CATV reverse path applications.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability for three ultra-fast 650 V NPT IGBTs. These transistors represent the newest generation of Microsemi IGBTs optimized for outstanding ruggedness and best trade-off between conduction and switching losses. They feature zero reverse recovery, low leakage, anti-parallel silicon carbide diodes, low saturation voltage, low tail current, and more.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a fully integrated PIN limiter / Schottky diode module in a surface-mount package. The Skyworks SKY16602-632LF provides passive receiver protection in wireless or other RF systems ranging in frequency from 200 MHz to 4 GHz. Capable of handling 100 W of pulsed power, the SKY16602-632LF has a very low threshold of approximately 5 dBm.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LTC2000, a 16-bit 2.5 Gsps digital-to-analog converter (DAC) with exceptional spectral purity of 74 dBc SFDR at 200 MHz output, and better than 68 dBc SFDR for output frequencies from DC to 1 GHz, a 12 dB improvement over alternative 14-bit DACs. The LTC2000 features low phase noise and a wide 2.1 GHz to 3 dB output bandwidth.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new 15 W X-band power amplifier from M/A-COM Technology Solutions. The MAAP-015036 is a two-stage GaAs MMIC PA operating from 8.5 to 10.5 GHz, with a saturated pulsed output power of +42 dBm and a large signal gain of 17 dB. The MAAP-015036 is available in die form.
The VC-709 crystal oscillator is a quartz stabilized, differential output oscillator, operating off a 2.5 or 3.3 volt supply in a hermetically sealed 5 x 7 mm ceramic package. Features include 187 fs, 12 kHz to 20 MHz ultra low jitter performance, 13.50 to 220.00 MHz output frequency, 0 ps deterministic jitter, 3rd OT crystal design, low power and more.
