New 40 W Multi-Band GaN Power Amplifier
CTT announces a new solid-state GaN-based power amplifier, Model AGX/180-4656, that covers a wide bandwidth of 3 to 18 GHz with 40 W of CW power output. The compact size of 5.16 in. x 4.90 in. x 0.28 in. offers RF/microwave designers an excellent choice for SWaP solutions in many applications, including EW jammers, and for transmit power in multi-band SATCOM terminals.
2018 Defence, Security & Space Forum
The Defence, Security and Space (DSS) Forum is jointly organized by EuMA and Microwave Journal, to complement European Microwave Week’s activity in the defence, security and space sector. Each year the DSS Forum focuses on a hot topic that is engaging industry, academia and organisations/agencies to develop, test and implement leading edge technology. This year’s one-day focused Forum will address the integration of UAVs into defence and security scenarios. A full itinerary can be found in the conference special events section of the EuMW website.
SPUMA RS Cables for Easy Handling
HUBER+SUHNER launched a new RF cable. Thanks to the rotary swaging technology the new member of the SPUMA cable family enables a significantly easier handling while keeping the outstanding low loss values and the excellent electrical performance. The well known SPUMA product family provides flexible and halogen free cable types. With a screening effectiveness > 90 dB over the whole operating frequency range, as well as a tight bending radius, a wide application range is covered. SPUMA cables are designed for applications up to 6 GHz and are applicable in the defense, instrumentation, industrial, railway and communication markets.
Pre-Filtered Low Noise Amplifiers for GPS
K&L Microwave offers pre-filtered low noise amplifiers for GPS and other frequency bands. The GPS offering can cover L1, L2, L5 or combinations of those frequency bands. Gains available are 16 to 40 dB with noise figures typically 1.8 dB or less. These LNA’s are designed for harsh military environments with product supplied to many missile applications. Options are available with or without limiters. DC inputs can be supplied through independent pins or through the RF connector by use of a bias T.
L3 Electron Devices’ MPMS
L3 Electron Devices’ MPMs are super components that combine a solid-state driver amplifier with a micro-TWT and a power supply in one package that is much smaller, lighter and more efficient than a comparable TWTA or SSPA. Their MPMs are available in bands from 2 to 95 GHz with output powers from 40 to 200 W. All L3 MPMs are optimized for demanding defense applications that require small, lightweight and environmentally rugged, high-power microwave amplifiers.
