It has a maximum noise figure of 5.0 dB and offers an OP1 dB of +17 dBm min. The unit requires +12 to +15 VDC with a nominal current draw of 230 mA.
PMI Model Number DD-20-218-5PF-1-N-M-OPT0518 is a 0.5 to 18.0 GHz, high speed, high sensitivity, diode detector requiring no bias and offering excellent temperature stability with a response time of less than 5 nanoseconds. The frequency range is 0.5 to 18 GHz.
Empower is pleased to be releasing additional, industry leading power amplifier models that compliment the frequency coverage and power level “footprint” of our next generation, high power PA product family. Model 2170, covering 1 to 3 GHz and delivering 1 kW of broadband output power in a 5U, air cooled chassis is our latest market release.
Linear Technology Corp. announces a military MP grade version of the LT3014B, a high voltage, micropower, low dropout regulator capable of delivering 20 mA output current. The LT3014B operates with a continuous input voltage range of 3 to 80 V and generates output voltages from 1.22 to 60 V with a low dropout of 350 mV
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the TGA2627-SM. This 32 dBm Psat GaN driver has a push-pull internal configuration that provides low harmonic content of <40 dBc over the 6 to 12 GHz frequency span. Small signal gain is rated at >27 dB. The TGA2627-SM is compatible with TriQuint’s high power amplifiers, easing the burden of multiple bias supplies.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a 1.25 W driver amplifier serving radar, communication and test instrumentation applications from 2.7 to 4 GHz. The TriQuint TGA2731-SM contains an integrated attenuator and power detector. Self-biasing circuitry allows operation from a single, 6 V supply. The TGA2731-SM’s linear power gain is >24dB.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT8640, a 5 A, 42 V input capable synchronous step-down switching regulator. A unique Silent Switcher™ architecture, combined with spread spectrum frequency modulation, reduces EMI/EMC emissions by more than 25 dB even with switching frequencies in excess of 2 MHz, enabling it to easily pass the automotive CISPR25, Class 5 peak limits.
Analog Devices Inc. announced an integrated direct conversion receiver development platform for radar systems where reduced size, weight and power (SWaP) implementation is critical. The AD-FMCOMMS6-EBZ platform is a 400 MHz to 4.4 GHz receiver (1350 to 1650 MHz with installed filters) supporting the key L- and S-band frequency radar bands.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a fully integrated, 50 ohm digital variable gain amplifier from TriQuint. The TQC9312 combines an amplifier + DSA + amplifier into a module that includes matching circuits, bias chokes, bypass and blocking capacitors making the TQC9312 a drop-in solution requiring no external components.
