RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a driver amplifier designed to support HPA implementation from 13 to 18 GHz and providing 2 W of saturated output power. The Qorvo TGA2958-SM is compatible with GaN HPA bias conditions allowing it to run from the same supply as the high-power amplifier. The TGA2958-SM, 3-stage driver, has a small signal gain of >25 dB yet draws only 70 mA of CW bias.
Empower RF announces availability of their field proven Model 2185 pulsed amplifier operating from 960 to 1215 MHz at 10 KW peak and duty cycles from 0.1% to 5%. This compact and versatile DME, IFF, TACAN, and JTIDS transmitting amplifier, with flexible operating modes, also makes an ideal fit for radar component testing, advanced research, and system development.
Pasternack offers small form factor MMBX connectors and adapters most commonly used on circuit boards and their associated input/output connections for industrial, telecom and consumer product applications. These MMBX adapters and connectors offer a maximum operating frequency of 12.4 GHz, excellent VSWR of 1.06:1, mechanical misalignment tolerance of 4.5° (or 0.7mm) max and feature gold plated beryllium copper contacts.
SemiGen has added a series of limiter diodes to its expanding product offerings, SLP7100 series. The SLP7100 limiter diodes are processed with a high-resistivity epitaxial wafer (epi) that has thin intrinsic layers. These devices are 2 to 20 microns thick and can be gold doped to achieve specific performance goals. The SLP7100 limiter diodes are used in passive or active limiter designs in the 100 MHz to 30 GHz frequency ranges.
Empower RF is announcing wide availability of their field proven model 2185 high power pulsed amplifier operating from 960 to 1215 MHz at 10 KW Peak and duty cycles from 0.1 to 5%. This compact and versatile radar transmitting amplifier, with flexible operating modes, makes an ideal fit for radar component testing, advanced research, and system development. Because of its superior SWaP, it is also well suited for mobile EW.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability of a integrated, dual RF transceiver from Analog Devices, Inc. ADI's AD9371 is a highly-integrated, wideband RF transceiver offering dual channel transmitters and receivers, integrated synthesizers, and digital signal-processing functions. With a tuning range of 300 MHz to 6 GHz, 250 MHz signal bandwidth, and power consumption of less than 5 W under standard operating conditions.
Anritsu Co.introduced software for its radio communications analyzer MT8821C that creates the industry’s first test solution that supports evaluation of 4 x 4 MIMO 256 QAM RF Rx performance for all DL 3CC CA band combinations with no restrictions on frequency and signal bandwidth combinations.
