Cernex CBG series bias tuned Gunn oscillators are offered to cover the frequency range of 10 to 140 GHz in ten waveguide bands. These oscillators utilize either GaAs or InP high performance Gunn diodes and combine various cavity configurations and rich design experience to deliver moderate output power at high microwave and millimeter-wave frequency spectrum directly.
PMI Model No. P8T-100M40G-85-T-512-292FF is a high speed, single pole, eight throw, absorptive switch operating over the frequency range of 100 MHz to 40.0GHz. It is capable of switching within 30 ns and has over 90 dB of isolation up to 18 GHz, 80 dB up to 26.5 GHz and 70 dB up to 40 GHz.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT8612, a 6 A, 42 V input capable synchronous step-down switching regulator. Synchronous rectification delivers efficiency as high as 95% while Burst Mode® operation keeps quiescent current under 3 µA in no-load standby conditions. Its 3.4 to 42 V input voltage range makes it ideal for automotive and industrial applications. Its internal high efficiency switches deliver up to 6 A of continuous output current to voltages as low as 0.97 V.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced theE5063A ENA Series network analyzer, a low-cost ENA solution for manufacturing test. The instrument offers optimized performance and functionality for testing simple RF passive components, such as handset/BTS antennas, RF cables and filters. It can also be used in R&D for evaluation of RF passive devices and dielectric materials.
Linear Technology announces the LTC3638, a 140 V input-capable high efficiency buck converter that delivers up to 250 mA of continuous output current. It operates from an input voltage range of 4 to 140 V, making it ideal for telecom, industrial, avionic and automotive applications. The LTC3638 utilizes internal synchronous rectification and a programmable hysteretic-mode design to optimize efficiency over a broad range of output currents.
RFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support for a pair of high power GaN SPDT switches from TriQuint. The TGS2352-2-SM covers frequencies from 500 MHz to 12 GHz and handles input power up to 20 W while the TGS2353-2-SM extends frequency coverage to 18 GHz and handles up to 10 W of input power.
Renaissance has designed a high power drop-in isolator for IFF transceiver application. Covering 1020 to 1040 MHz, this isolator has just 0.40 dB of insertion loss over -30 to +70 C while handling 100 W forward and reverse power levels.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the E5063A PCB Analyzer for printed circuit board impedance test in manufacturing. The solution offers technology breakthroughs in accuracy and repeatability and reproducibility (R&R). The analyzer also provides a dedicated user interface with broader language support, and more robustness against electrostatic discharge for PCB manufacturing environments.
Agilent announced the newest version of its Command Expert software for faster and easier instrument control in many test application development environments.
Custom MMIC, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), is introducing two DC-18 GHz SPDT non-reflective switches, the CMD195C3 and the CMD196C3. While both switches cover the same bandwidth and are housed in the same 3x3 mm RoHS-compliant SMT package, they differ in their insertion loss.
