Barry Industries announces the introduction of a RoHS compliant flange mount RF termination, T50R0-1750-1X, which dissipates 1750 W with favorable return loss over a DC to 1GHz bandwidth. Barry Industries is an ISO9001:2008 certified, ITAR registered manufacturer of high quality thick film resistors, terminations, attenuators and high temperature co-fired ceramic (HTCC) packaging.
RFMW Ltd., announced design support for MECA LPTC series of Low-PIM terminations.The MECA LPTC series features compact terminations at power handling levels of 10, 50, 100 and 250 watts with outstanding PIM performance of -160 to -165 dBc. All of the terminations perform up to 2700 MHz with a maximum VSWR 1.20:1. The MECA Low-PIM terminations are available in 7/16, N and 4.1/9.5 connector configurations.
Gowanda Electronics recently achieved qualification to the military’s MIL-PRF-83446 specification for its MLRF0603 and MLRF0805 series of RF surface mount wirewound coil, ceramic core chip inductors with tin/lead terminations.
Pasternack Enterprises Inc., an industry leading manufacturer and global supplier of RF and microwave products, releases all new lines of medium and high power RF loads. These new RF loads (also referred to as RF terminations and dummy loads) are commonly used in military/aerospace, defense and test and measurement applications in order to protect radios and amplifiers under test from excess power in the system.
The new AT549RBT cored-spring inductor from Coilcraft CPS (Critical Products & Services) features a temperature rating of -55° to +300°C, making it ideal for extreme-temperature applications such as down-hole drilling and on-engine automotive.
Barry Industries introduces an RoHS compliant flange mount termination which dissipates 800 W with minimal return loss over a DC to 1 GHz bandwidth. The thick film on aluminum nitride (AlN) TA50R0-800-15X termination, with its internally matched circuit architecture, has 25 dB or better return loss from DC to 1 GHz. The four-hole flange and input tab are constructed of robust nickel-plated copper. Overall footprint is 1.9” x 1.04”.
Passive Plus Inc. now offers an extended-values for the traditional Hi-Q high power, low ESR/ESL, low noise, high self-resonance ultra-stable performance capacitors. Usually used for wireless broadcasting equipment, mobile base stations, GPS portables, MRI coils and radar, these capacitors are 100 percent RoHS and offered in magnetic and non-magnetic terminations.
