Pasternack has unveiled a line of compact waveguide Gunn diode oscillators that are tunable and generate signal levels that exhibit low phase noise at popular K and Ka band frequencies. Gunn diode oscillators incorporate high performance devices and machined aluminum cavities. These oscillators exhibit excellent frequency and power stability, lower phase noise and higher anti-load pulling characteristics.
Pasternack has launched a line of low-PIM, plenum-rated SPP-250-LLPL cable assemblies for use in wireless infrastructure. Typical applications include distributed antenna systems (DAS), indoor wireless systems, multi-carrier communication systems and PIM testing. Pasternack’s 36 low-PIM jumper cables are made with UL910 plenum-rated SPP-250-LLPL cable and feature a maximum PIM level of -155 dBc.
Pasternack has released a series of RF and microwave power amplifier accessories that includes heat sinks, heat sinks with cooling fans and power control cable assemblies. Heat sinks are devices that enhance heat dissipation from a hot surface and are ideal for thermal management of power amplifiers in test and measurement applications. A functioning power amplifier will generate elevated levels of heat that needs to be properly dissipated.
Pasternack has introduced 28 waveguide electromechanical relay switches that offer full waveguide performance covering C, X, Ku, K and Ka frequency bands from 5.85 to 40 GHz. They are ideal for applications that include electronic warfare, electronic countermeasures, microwave radio, VSAT, SATCOM, radar, research and development, space systems and test instrumentation.
Pasternack launched a complete millimeter wave transmitter module for developing multi-Gbps, high speed, point-to-point wireless communication links. The PEM010 operates in the global unlicensed frequency spectrum from 57.0 to 64.8 GHz and supports the IEEE 802.11ad and 802.11aj Wi-Fi protocols for wireless networking.
Pasternack, a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, has launched a new line of USB-controlled Phase Locked Loop (PLL) frequency synthesizers. In RF & Microwave communications systems where signal integrity is of prime importance, PLL synthesizers offer high levels of frequency stability and accuracy with exceptional phase noise characteristics that allows components in the signal chain to perform at their optimum levels.
Pasternack has released a line of waveguide direct read attenuators for instrumentation, test benches, high efficiency RF/Microwave transmissions, SATCOM, MILCOM, radar and telecom applications. Pasternack’s direct read attenuators are available in WR-42 to WR-10 waveguide standards operating in seven waveguide bands within the 18 to 110 GHz frequency range. They boast +/- 2% typical attenuation accuracy.
Pasternack offers small form factor MMBX connectors and adapters most commonly used on circuit boards and their associated input/output connections for industrial, telecom and consumer product applications. These MMBX adapters and connectors offer a maximum operating frequency of 12.4 GHz, excellent VSWR of 1.06:1, mechanical misalignment tolerance of 4.5° (or 0.7mm) max and feature gold plated beryllium copper contacts.
Pasternack introduced a family of waveguide directional couplers displaying highly accurate performance up to 33 GHz. These waveguide couplers are commonly used for signal sampling and other general purpose applications in wireless transmit/receive systems, satellite communications, radar systems, point-to-point backhaul and telecom. Pasternack’s latest release of waveguide directional couplers consists of 74 unique models.
Pasternack introduces a line of voltage variable attenuators offering up to 60 dB of attenuation across broad frequencies from 400 MHz to 18 GHz. This line of voltage variable attenuators is most commonly deployed in applications such as electronic warfare, instrumentation, point-to-point and point-to-multipoint radios, fiber optic and broadband telecom, microwave radio and VSAT, military radios, radar, ECM, SATCOM and sensors, and R&D.
