Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
Operating over Ku-Band, the AMC Model RFM-16M7 integrated switching assembly contains solid-state switches, circulators, a digital controlled attenuator, a Ku-Band solid-state source and a detector logarithmic video amplifier with digitized video output. It is designed for flight line use in conjunction with an optical delay line to provide precise pulse delays for radar calibration.
American Microwave Corporation is pleased to announce its model CVR-120-50-CW DLVA, a form, fit, function replacement for a Teledyne detector logarithmic video amplifier part number 2277635-4. It covers the frequency range from 1 to 20 GHz with 45 dB logging range, CW Immunity, 40 nS rise time, -42 dBm TSS and 6 uSec, maximum recovery time and is utilized in the ALQ-119 jamming system.
Operating at L-Band, this SP9T solid state switch offers 1.6 dB insertion loss, >45 dB isolation, better than 1.5:1 VSWR, TTL control and handles up to 100 W CW. This part features a dual directional coupler on the input and each of the 9 outputs has a coupled port (26 dB).
Model SWN-2DR-STD is a SPDT solid state reflective switch capable of operating from 8 to 18 GHz and handling 40 W of CW power. The switch has a maximum insertion loss of 2 dB, VSWR of 2.0:1 maximum and an isolation of >40 dB. It has a maximum switching speed of 150 nsec. Switching rate is 500 kHz max. Input and output connectors are SMA (F) with solder pins for TTL and power supplies.
American Microwave’s model SWN-18DT is a low profile SP18T solid state absorptive switch capable of operating from 0.5 to 10 GHz and handling more than 20 W of CW power. This switch is designed for high volume production offering very repeatable specifications.
At IMS 2011, American Microwave Corp. (AMC) featured its new integrated switch matrix technology.

American Microwave Corp. brings microwave integrated circuit technology to the solid-state switch matrix resulting in a hybrid switch matrix on a single substrate. Using a multilayer substrate, AMC is able to design for SMT production various configurations of RF/microwave switches with custom driver/logic circuitry and custom mechanical requirements.
The engineers and technicians at AMC have worked together to develop a new PIN diode switch circuit that allows for excellent insertion loss and isolation. Initial configurations will be SPST and SP3T. AMC Model Number SWNN-3DR-06T is a SP3T Reflective Solid State PIN Diode Switch with very low loss.
AMERICAN MICROWAVE CORPORATION, INC. announces an improved programmable 0.5 to 18 GHz attenuator. This incorporates a new driver circuit with faster switching and more accurate attenuation. Low insertion loss and stable operation over temperature extremes.
This Phase Invariant Digital Programmable Attenuator offers essentially constant phase, adjustable attenuation over 40 dB in the 8 to 12 GHz range. It utilizes a unique double balanced arrangement of diodes and quadrature couplers to achieve the phase independent attenuation characteristics usable over 6 to 18 GHz.
