AtlanTecRF launched the new Multi-Path Satellite Simulator System (the MSS Series.) The MSS Systems are designed to ‘talk’ to two ground-based or mobile satcom stations, simultaneously, thereby replicating for test purposes, the satellite link while remaining off-air. Each system consists of three parts, a base control unit and two weatherproof transponders each of which can be orientated to connect with a system under test (SUT) antenna.
AtlanTecRF has launched an expanded range of cable connector options for its standard cable assembly range. New connectors include SMA male straight, SMA male R/A, SMA female bulkhead, Type N male straight, N male R/A, N female bulkhead. These are in addition to the standard SMA male connectors already offered across the company’s cable range. These connector options can be applied to AtlanTecRF’s ASR, ASF and AFX cable series.
AtlanTecRF launched a range of Ka-band loop test translators (LTT) with ethernet control. The ALR series of ka-band loop test translators address the 27 GHz uplink market and feature synthesised variable frequency local oscillators (LOs) to provide the user with the most versatile and comprehensive operating configurations for translation of uplink (Tx) frequencies to either downlink (Rx) frequencies or to L-Band, and for L-Band to downlink (Rx).
AtlanTecRF launched an ultra broadband amplifier, covering the 50 MHz to 20 GHz frequency range in a single unit. This 25 dB gain block delivers up to 18 dB at 1 dB compression and yet has a typical noise figure of just 1.8 dB, thereby making it an all round, general purpose amplifier with applications in test measurement, electronic countermeasures and scientific research as well as a whole range of communication equipment.
AtlanTecRF launched its latest ultra broadband 500 MHz to 20 GHz digitally controlled PIN attenuator. This digital attenuator (ADA-500-2000-60/0.5) covers the whole frequency range from 500 MHz to 20 GHz and provides a minimum attenuation range of 60dB in 0.5dB steps with TTL control of 7 bits. Switching time is less than 200 nanoseconds and the input power handling capability is up to +25dBm.
AtlanTecRF announced the launch of its APV Series of Phase Locked Voltage Controlled Oscillators. These compact oscillator units find application in communication systems as a high quality local oscillator with the ability to lock to a high stability external reference of 10 or 100 MHz. The fixed output frequency can be in the range from 10 MHz to 32 GHz and is at a minimum level of +13 dBm.
AtlanTecRFannounced the launch of its range of ultra flexible low loss test cables. The new APC series features a degree of flexibility not previously seen in assemblies of this type. Key to its ultra flexible performance is the unique cable construction in five layers from a silver plated copper centre conductor through low density PTFE dielectric, silver plated copper shield and silver plated copper outer shield, to the polyurethane jacket.
AtlanTecRF announced the launch of its new BLR series of ethernet controllable LTTs (loop test translators) in convenient bench instruments. With models designed for operation in both Ku and Ka bands, these portable items of satcom test kit can be easily transported to the test location and set up for either local operation or remote operation via ethernet with a GUI.
