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.
The MAUC-010506 is an integrated up-converter featuring a typical conversion gain of 14 dB, an image rejection of 25 dBc, and 21 dBm third order intercept (IIP3). The device includes an LO doubler, LO buffer amplifier, and RF buffer amplifier. Variable gain can be achieved by adjusting the bias, with turn-down trajectories optimized to maintain linearity and 2xLO leakage over the gain control range.
Linear Technology announces the LTC5577, a 300MHz to 6GHz active down converting mixer with outstanding +30 dBm IIP3 (Input Third Order Intercept) and 0 dB conversion gain. The LTC5577 has wide operating frequency capability, covering all cellular bands from 450 MHz to 3.6 GHz with a single part. It’s IF output port, usable from1 MHz to 1.5 GHz, delivers flat conversion gain performance to over 600 MHz bandwidth.
PMI Model No. P6T-2G18G-60-T-512-SFF-LV is a single pole, six throw, absorptive, low video transient, solid state switch operating over the frequency range of 2.0 to 18.0 GHz. This model has a maximum insertion loss of 4.0 dB and a minimum isolation specification of 60 dB with video transients of 2 mV typically.
Linear Technology announces new high reliability H grade and military MP grade versions of the LTC3612, a high efficiency, 4 MHz synchronous buck regulator that incorporates a constant frequency, current mode architecture. The device can deliver up to 3 A of continuous output current at output voltages as low as 0.6 V from a 3 mm x 4 mm QFN or a thermally enhanced TSSOP-20 package.
Model Number PS-5G18G-400-A-SFF is a 5 to 18GHz, low phase noise, analog phase shifter with capability for phase shifting from 0 to 400 degrees. The unit operates from a single positive control voltage of 0 to +10 VDC with a phase voltage sensitivity of 40 degrees per volt. This model can be used with the SMA connectors or in a surface mount configuration.
Linear Technology Corporation announces the LT3065,a high voltage, low noise, low dropout voltage linear regulator offering precision, programmable current limit and a power good flag. The device delivers up to 500 mA output current with a 300 mV dropout voltage at full load. It features a wide 1.8 to 45 V input voltage range and output voltage is adjustable from 0.6 to 40 V.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the new M8000 Series BER test solution, a highly integrated and scalable bit error ratio test solution for physical-layer characterization, validation and compliance testing for receivers used in multigigabit digital designs. The new M8000 Series BER test solution provides accurate and reliable results that accelerate insight into the performance margins of high-speed digital devices.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced the E8486A waveguide power sensor. Designed with a WR-12 flange connector, the E8486A makes precise and accurate power measurements in the E-band spectrum of 60 to 90 GHz, making the sensor the ideal solution to meet the rapid demand in E-band telecommunication applications.
Model SFA-923963618-10SF-S1 is a W-Band X6 active multiplier with center frequency at 94 GHz with minimum ± 2 GHz operational bandwidth. The active multiplier converts 15.33 to 16.0 GHz/+5 dBm input signal to deliver 92 to 96 GHz frequency band with more than +18 dBm power.
