Microwave Development Laboratories Inc. will offer a sampling of its extensive expertise and product lines based on high-performance waveguide technology at the upcoming 2016 IEEE International Microwave Symposium and Exhibition scheduled for May 22-27, 2016 in San Francisco, Calif. MDL will be exhibiting within the Moscone Center at Booth #2432.

As part of the 2016 IMS Exhibition, Microwave Development Laboratories will welcome visitors to its booth with details and advice on the use of its comprehensive waveguide-based product lines, and how to match different sizes of waveguide products to different frequency bands and applications.

Products on display will include waveguide bends and twists, waveguide-to-coax adapters, power dividers, phase shifters, rotary joints, variable attenuators, and rotary switches. For applications requiring higher frequencies and higher power-handling capabilities, waveguide is still a preferred format over various other component formats, including surface-mount and coaxial components.

Rotary joints based on rigid waveguide can provide high-performance and dependable connections in many commercial and military RF/microwave systems. As long-time, highly experienced developers of waveguide and coaxial rotary joints, MDL can provide standard models of both waveguide and coaxial rotary joints, and provide guidance on performance differences in between the two types in terms of insertion loss, VSWR and power-handling capabilities,

In addition, visitors to the 2016 IEEE IMS Exhibition can learn more about Microwave Development Laboratories’ handy online tools, including their new Reflectometer Calculator, Rigid Waveguide Sliderule app and Rigid Waveguide Tool. These free-of-charge, downloadable programs help simplify and speed the process of finding the right performance for a particular size waveguide or waveguide component. Also online at MDL’s website are a CAD database for MDL Cast 90 degree Bends and the company’s full product catalog. Stop by MDL’s Booth (#2432) to talk about special shaped Bends based on MDL’s Additive Manufacturing Process.
