NIC introduces a wideband LNA operating over the frequency range of 4.4 to 5 GHz, designed for use in C-band, radar and SATCOM applications. This LNA offers a high gain of 30 dB, sub 1 dB noise figure, and low current consumption and input power protection.
PMI would like to announce its newest solid-state switch that offers a level of performance exceeding industry standards. PMI Model No. P2T-100M1G-90-T-55-SFF is an absorptive, SP2T solid-state switch that covers the 100MHz to 1.0GHz frequency range. This model offers extremely low insertion loss, very high isolation and a switching speed of 50nsec maximum.
Werlatone continues to set the standard in high power RF components with the Model C8858. This very small 40 dB dual directional coupler, measures only 2.86 x 1.16 x 0.535 inches. While providing exceptionally low loss, 0.4 dB Max., it covers a full 10 – 1000 MHz bandwidth and is rated at 250 W CW. This unit is suitable for commercial and/or military applications.
Skyworks is pleased to introduce a hyperabrupt varactor diode with a wide tuning range and low phase noise for VCO and voltage tuned filter applications. This general market diode targets WLAN, CATV LNB, energy management, wireless infrastructure and military applications.
Skyworks & RFMW introduces select digital attenuators. With up to 7-bits and 0.25 dB step accuracy, these select digital attenuators operate up to 4 GHz for both RF and IF applications. All attenuators are absorptive in 50 ohm environments and easily cascadable – impedance matching is not needed between attenuators.
With companies looking for even greater efficiencies, the need to re-use not only hardware but software components is essential. Enormous investments in legacy systems cannot be disposed of so the ME7834 mobile device test platform provides the most flexible way to combine existing and new components.
Rogers Corp.'s RT/duroid® 6035HTC is a high-thermal-conductivity (HTC) laminate material engineered for low loss in high power circuits. The fluoropolymer composite material is ideal for RF and microwave applications in military and high reliability (hi-rel) applications required to handle high power levels, such as power amplifiers. Rogers RT/duroid 6035HTC laminates feature a relative dielectric constant of 3.5 at 10 GHz.
