Skyworks is pleased to introduce two broadband, 75 Ohm MMIC front-end, low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) designed specifically for set-top box applications: the SKY65450-92LF (with bypass mode) and the SKY65452-92LF. These devices provide high linearity and excellent gain over a wide frequency range (40 MHz to 1 GHz) with minimal external components, enabling OEMs to leverage cost efficiencies through lower bill of materials.
Anritsu Corporation has strengthened the wireless test functions of the all-in-one radio communication analyzer MT8821C with the release of four new software packages for evaluating LTE-Advanced UE supporting downlink (DL) 4 x 4 MIMO and ddownlink carrier aggregation (DL CA) 5CCs. As well as expanding the MT8821C measurement functions, these latest software packages also strengthen the easy-to-use GUI with enhanced parameter search features.
CPI BMD’s solid state power amplifiers are reliable, highly-efficient and easy to maintain. The VSC3645 solid state power amplifiers are designed for use in maritime surveillance and weather radar transmitters and cover the 5.2 to 5.9 GHz frequency band. GaN transistors are combined into a 4.2 kW output and are air cooled. These modules can be power-combined using waveguide combiners to achieve the higher power levels required for various radars.
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC7813, a dual output (boost + buck), low quiescent current synchronous DC/DC controller. The LTC7813 operates from an input voltage of 4.5 to 60 V during start-up and maintains operation down to a 2.2 V input after start-up. The boost converter can produce an output voltage up to 60 V and the buck converter produces an output voltage ranging from 0.8 to 60V with the entire system achieving an efficiency as high as 98%.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the Qorvo TQP9218, a quarter watt (24.5 dBm) and highly efficient power amplifier covering 1805 to 1880 MHz. ACLR at 24 dBm is -48 dBc. The TQP9218 is internally matched for ease of design and offers good linear performance without the need for linearization. Running from a nominal 4.5 V supply, the TQP9218 draws 240 mA and boasts 16% PAE while offering 31 dB of gain.
Keysight Technologies Inc. introduced the world's first analyzer enabling a minimum of 100 pA level dynamic current measurements with a maximum of 200 MHz bandwidth, 1 GSa/s sampling rate and 14- or 16-bit wide dynamic range. The Keysight CX3300 series device current waveform analyzer is a new category of instrument and is ideally suited for researchers struggling with high-speed transient current measurements during advanced device characterization.
Exodus Advanced Communication introduces AMP3085. 8 to 12 GHz, 100 W Min / 120 W typical GAN module. It features instantaneous bandwidth from 8000 to 12000 MHz with 100 W minimum saturated CW power, 4.0 dB peak to peak flatness and 22 A max consumption. Suitable for any application requiring high power and wide band coverage such as TWTA replacement, EW, and EMI/RFI susceptibility testing.
Anritsu Company introduces software packages for its all-in-one radio communication analyzer MT8821C that support LTE-advanced UE downlink (DL) 4 x 4 MIMO and downlink carrier aggregation (DL CA) 5 CCs. The new software packages further strengthen the test functionality of the MT8821C and help create a single-instrument solution that can speed time to market and lower test costs of LTE-advanced chipsets, smartphones, tablets and M2M modules used in IoT applications.
Anokiwave Inc. announced it has extended its X-band IC product line with the addition of the AWMF-0106 front end IC. This product release completes the family of X-band radar solutions for commercial radar and 5G communications markets. The AWMF-0106 is an integrated power amplifier; low noise amplifier, limiter, and T/R switch intended to provide a low noise, medium power front end for the Anokiwave AWS-0103 and AWS-0105 high Rx input linearity X-band core IC solutions.
