IDT and Epson Provide Low Phase Noise Timing for Telecom and Data Centers

Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT) and Seiko Epson Corporation (Epson) have collaborated on a low phase noise timing solution for telecommunications and data center applications. IDT's new 8V19N474 jitter attenuator and frequency synthesizer, coupled with Epson's VG-4513 high performance voltage-controlled crystal oscillator (VCXO), provide best-in-class phase noise performance for demanding applications such as 40/100/400 Gbps Ethernet timing. For wired communications, the IDT-Epson solution meets physical layer specifications for phase noise, bit error rate and signal-to-noise ratio without external filtering.

SAGE Millimeter Releases V-Band, Dual Polarized Antenna Horn Assembly

Dual Polarized Horn Antenna: SAR-5037531530-15-S1-DP

SAGE Millimeter has released a V-Band, dual polarized horn antenna assembly covering 50 to 75 GHz. The antenna features an integrated orthomode transducer (OMT) that provides high port isolation and cross-polarization cancellation, enabling the antenna to separate a circular or elliptical polarized waveform into two linear, orthogonal waveforms. At the center frequency, the horn antenna has 15 dBi nominal gain and a typical half-power beamwidth of 28 degrees on the E-plane and 33 degrees on the H-plane.
