As a vital link in utilising a single coaxial cable to carry both RF signals and DC power, the new ABT series of Bias Tees from AtlanTecRF bring this capability to systems operating at frequencies up to 50 GHz. With RF connector choices of 2.92 mm, SMA and Type N the actual frequency bands offered range from 10 MHz to 2.5 GHz through to 50 KHz to 50 GHz with DC voltage capability to 100 Volts and current capacity to 2.5 Amps.
Two models of ultra wide band miniature PIN switch have just arrived at AtlanTecRF, each covering the entire 1.0 to 18.0 GHz frequency range.
Well-known for its comprehensive ranges of connectors and cable assemblies, AtlanTecRF has introduced its range of high grade, yet affordable, coaxial adapters in the popular SMA and Type N series of interconnects. Suitable for use to 18 GHz and in some cases to 26 GHz, these professional quality adapters are available from stock and feature materials well suited to commercial, defence and aerospace environments.
Two new high performance directional couplers from AtlanTecRF cover the entire frequency range from 375 MHz to 18 GHz with at least 3 GHz of overlap. Available in a choice of either 10, 20, or 30 dB the 50 W couplers with SMA connectors and built-in terminations will operate over a temperature range of -55 to +55° C, making them suitable for use in applications from airborne ECM to the benign test bench.
Newly released from AtlanTecRF is a range of Wide Band Coaxial Isolators operating in the VHF and UHF frequency ranges and designated the LFI series. Offering up to an octave of band width at frequencies as low as 100 MHz, this range of products in 50 ohm impedance represents a first in solutions for both the RF design engineer and the RF test engineer.
Breaking barriers in the microwave system and test world, the new and innovative BPI series of power dividers feature a previously unattainable isolation between channels in excess of 40 dB. This is achieved by the use of ferrite isolators in each output port, a design enhancement which brings with it low VSWR of less than 1.25:1, and reverse isolation of greater than 20 dB, a hitherto unavailable asset.
In another innovative move in support of the RF/Microwave Test Engineer, AtlanTecRF has released the ASET range of boxed Attenuator Kits with SMA connectors. Offered in two frequency ranges, DC to 6 GHz and DC to 18 GHz, the ASET series of stainless steel attenuators are supplied in an organised storage box with individual compartments for each value from 1 to 10 dB in 1 dB steps, plus 15, 20 and 30 dB.
AtlanTecRF has introduced a new series of coaxial DC Blocks which are designed to provide the RF/Microwave communication systems engineer with versatile solutions in dealing with the presence of DC power on coaxial signal cables. With frequency ranges from 10 MHz to 40 GHz these small devices allow RF/microwave signals to pass with minimum insertion loss while blocking any DC present.
AtlanTecRF introduces a comprehensive range of fully flexible test cable assemblies which are particularly suited to extensive test set-ups either in the laboratory or automatic test equipment. Grey in colour and only 0.168 inches in diameter the standard connector types are SMA male with the well-known and reliable anti-torque feature for which AtlanTecRF assemblies are renowned.
AtlanTecRF now has stock of low PIM cable assemblies, which are designed specifically for applications where it is essential to have a low level of passive intermodulation products. This newly launched series of high performance and low intermodulation cable assemblies are available in two convenient diameters and a large range of lengths.
