Skyworks Solutions Inc. has introduced a surface mount limiter diode for receiver protection applications. The CLA4608-085LF is a low capacitance silicon PIN limiter diode designed for high power applications ranging from 10 MHz to over 6 GHz. Maximum resistance at 10 mA is 1.2 Ω and maximum capacitance at 38 V is 0.65 pF.
Richardson RFPD Inc. introduces three 1 kW solid state broadband high power amplifier systems from Empower RF Systems Inc. (Empower). Part of Empower's "size matters" campaign, the devices offer unrivaled size and power advantages, are packaged in a 5 U, air cooled chassis, and deliver more than 1 kW of output power from 20 to 1000 MHz. Performance is guaranteed over the full bandwidth and temperature.
Richardson RFPD, Inc. introduces the AirPrime™ SL Series from Sierra Wireless. With programmable capabilities, these wireless modules enable shared processing to reduce the size and cost of the final product. The standard 25 x 30 mm land grid array (LGA) package allows fully automated manufacturing for high-volume production.
With Intercept’s Pantheon layout software, RF design is made easy with its flexible shape and fill creation and management, detailed stackup builder, 3D viewer, and automated via handling. Modeling with HFSS is as easy as “cutting” a section of a design from the layout and sending it to HFSS for simulation.
Intercept’s specialized RF design flow with AWR allows engineers or designers to begin a design in AWR’s Microwave Office™, Pantheon™ layout software, or Mozaix™ schematic software. This flexibility is made possible by Intercept’s ability to send data to and from AWR’s Microwave Office bidirectionally, allowing designers and engineers to maintain closer communication during the design cycle.
The Intercept Technology RF Design flow includes Pantheon™ layout software with specialized RF design options, and bidirectional simulation interfaces to Ansys DesignerRF™, Ansys HFSS™ and AWR Microwave Office™. Vendor-specific RF models can be defined parametrically and placed in the layout, maintaining the simulation stream one-for-one.
Intercept Technology’s award-winning Pantheon PCB layout software with specialized RF and Hybrid user flows is now more affordable than ever. Integrated with a full CAD/CAE environment flow, Pantheon includes bidirectional RF simulation interfaces to Ansys DesignerRF™, Ansys HFSS™ and AWR Microwave Office™, RF models, reuse blocks, multi-board capabilities, panel arrays, artwork panelization,and more.
Model SFQ-94394312-1010SF-S1 is a W-Band quadrature (I/Q) mixer. The mixer employs high performance GaAs Schottky beamlead diodes, balanced configuration and proprietary circuitry to produce superior RF performance.
Renaissance has developed a new Ka-Band waveguide isolator that is designed for downconverters used in space applications. The isolator can operate between 27.5 to 31 GHz with 0.15 dB insertion loss over 5% bandwidth and 20 dB isolation and return loss.
Renaissance Electronics has developed a new low loss, high isolation waveguide isolator for Satcom applications that covers 43 to 46 GHz with industry standard interface of WR 22. With loss of 0.5 dB and 18 dB isolation, it is ideal for low noise figure Satcom receivers.
