Frequency DC - 50 GHz, VSWR ranges 0 to 26.5 GHZ to 40 to 60 GHz and operating temps are -55 to +100. The 50 GHz attenuators are in stock at RFMW and are ready to ship the same day.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Peregrine Semiconductor’s PE42920 dual differential SPDT switch operating from 10 kHz to 6 GHz. The PE42920 targets test and measurement applications where two independent differential signals are required to be switched. Having both switches in a small, 3 x 3 mm QFN package saves both board space and BOM cost as well as improving performance.
The R&S FSWP phase noise analyzer and VCO tester from Rohde & Schwarz enables ultrasensitive and ultra-fast phase noise measurements. It also allows users to measure the spectral purity of signal sources such as generators, synthesizers, high-end oscillators (OCXO, DRO, …) and voltage-controlled oscillators (VCO) more quickly than with any other solution. The high-end instrument covers a frequency range up to 26 GHz and offers a top dynamic range.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability for a 1700 V SiC MOSFET. The C2M1000170J features high blocking voltage with low RDS (on), low parasitic inductance, ultra-low drain gate capacitance, and a separate driver source pin. It is easy to parallel and simple to drive. The new MOSFET offers higher system efficiency, smooth switching waveforms, reduced cooling requirements, and increased system reliability.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Peregrine Semiconductor’s PE42822 high power SPDT RF switch operating from 700 MHz to 3.8 GHz utilizing UltraCMOS® SOI technology. With 65 dBm of IIP3 linearity and 120 dBm IIP2, the PE42822 is ideal for LTE receiver applications in microcells and picocells. This Peregrine switch boasts a 3 kV HBM ESD performance and supports extended temperature operation up to 105 degrees C.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for two DOCSIS 3.1 compliant power doubler amplifiers from Qorvo. The RFPD3210 and RFPD3220 are hybrid GaAs/GaN devices offering excellent linearity and low distortion. Designed for 45 to 1218 MHz CATV amplifier systems, the RFPD3210 and RFPD3220 also offer high gain of 22.5 and 24.5 dB respectively. Low noise figure of 3 dB punctuates the performance of these Qorvo power doublers.
Anritsu introduces a CPRI RF measurement option for its BTS Master™ handheld base station analyzer family that can significantly reduce the operational expense associated with troubleshooting interference at base stations. The BTS Master-based CPRI RF measurement test set allows field engineers and technicians to conduct accurate RF measurements on remote radio heads (RRHs) while remaining at ground level.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for API Technologies phase shifters designed for applications in optical communication systems. The precision adjustments on the OPS-0002 phase shifter allow enhanced resolution and accuracy setting. The API OPS-0002 is offered with precision 2.4 mm female connectors and operates up to 50 GHz. The micrometer adjustment allows for 28 turns. Each turn provides a minimum of 4 pico-seconds time delay.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a power amplifier from M/A-COM Technology Solutions. The MAAP-011140-DIE is a 4-stage, 6 W power amplifier in bare die form that is fabricated using a GaAs pHEMT device process featuring full passivation for enhanced reliability.
