Pickering Interfaces, a leading provider of signal switching and conditioning solutions, introduced an upgraded version of its 40-784 PXI Microwave Multiplexer – the 40-784A. The new version now supports one, two, or three microwave multiplexers, the multiplexers can be either 4 or 6 way. The multiplexers fitted to each model are characterized for 6, 18, 26.5, or 40 GHz bandwidth.
Pickering Interfaces Inc.announced that Hill Air Force Base recently awarded them a contract for a large quantity of their Model 45-542 6U High-Density Matrix modules for the PXI switching requirement that is part of the PATS-70 (Portable Automated Test Station) program for the life extension program of the A-10 aircraft. As part of the life extension program, the PATS-70 will provide ground-based diagnostics for the A-10 avionics systems.
Pickering Interfaces, a leading provider of signal switching and conditioning solutions, continues to expand its range of PXI modules with the introduction of a 5A Power Multiplexer Module (40-651). The 40-651 is a high density multiplexer (MUX) capable of hot switching up to 5A and 110VDC/250VAC; and the hot switch power is up to 150 W or 1250 VAC.
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.
