KCB Solutions, (www.kcbsolutions.com), an ITAR and AS9100 accredited microwave design and manufacturing center, is pleased to announce a new line of fully-screened Hi-Rel switches, attenuators, and power amplifiers. These GaAs devices meet the screening and qualification requirements of MIL-PRF-38534 and MIL-PRF-38535 and are available in a choice of leaded packages or newly qualified KCB hermetic QFNs. They’re designed specifically for military and space requirements and come 100% electrically tested with data recording per serial number and with full lot traceability.

The KCB line of broadband pHEMT GaAs FET switches range from DC-6 GHz and offer isolations as high as 56 dB and losses as low as 0.5 dB. In select models, the drivers are included.  

KCB digital attenuators range from DC-6 GHz and feature a GaAs broadband seven-bit pHEMT digital attenuator. They deliver low insertion loss of 1.8 dB, excellent attenuation accuracy of +/- 0.15 dB, and an attenuation range of 31.75 dB. Integrated into the devices is a TTL/CMOS-compatible, dual-mode serial or parallel programming interface controller.

A sample of the amplifier line is model KCB810. It is a GaAs pHEMT high performance, ultra-wideband 0.4 to 2.7 GHz power amplifier offering superior output power, low noise, high linearity and high efficiency.

This is the beginning of a new roll out of off-the-shelf Hi-Rel solutions from KCB.

KCB is exhibiting this week at the International Microwave Symposium in booth #1610.
