X-Band Family of Silicon ICs
Anokiwave’s X-Band Quad Channel Silicon Beamformer IC family reduces SWaP-C for commercial radars and SATCOM applications. The Core ICs integrate all of the required Tx and Rx amplification, gain/phase control and RF switching into a single silicon chip while adding advanced digital functionality such as gain compensation over temperature, temperature reporting, forward power telemetry and fast beam switching. Using low cost silicon and advanced integration, Anokiwave makes the new world of electronically steered active phased array antennas a reality.

C-RAM® HC series
C-RAM® HC is a series of radar absorbing products made from Nomex/phenolic or honeycomb with a proprietary lossy coating. The hexagonal open cell structure provides a high strength-to-weight ratio, making C-RAM® HC an ideal material for aircraft parts, such as fairings, covers and leading edges, which must combine strength, light weight and low radar reflections. Honeycomb is also ideal for cavity backed spiral antenna applications. The open cells permit forced air cooling, allowing high-power applications. Custom composite shapes are also available per customer drawings.
DC to 20 GHz Voltage Variable Attenuator
The CMD285C3 is DC to 20 GHz GaAs MMIC absorptive Voltage Variable Attenuator (VVA) housed in a leadless surface mount package ideally suited for military, space and communications systems. The VVA uses two analog control voltages varied between −5 and 0 V to control RF signal levels over a 35 dB dynamic range. The CMD285C3 has a low insertion loss of 3.2 dB at 10 GHz and is a 50 Ω matched design, eliminating the need for RF port matching.
NEW 40 GHz ArcTite®
The ArcTite® series of cable assemblies is now available from DC to 40 GHz and provides ultra-low profile bends without the need for supplemental strain relief boots. Innovative connector designs conform to the MIL-STD-348 interface specification and utilize a 360 degree internal solder termination for high-reliability and enhanced shielding effectiveness. They are ideal for high density, internal module connections and provide a cost effective, higher performance alternative to SMA right angle connectors. They replace standard 0.086 and 0.141 custom semi-rigid cables eliminating the need for complex, pre-defined bends. Available in standard lengths and as hybrid assemblies.
Phase-stable cable assemblies
Opening a new door for phase critical applications in fluctuating temperatures, a steady and reliable interconnect solution to satisfy a huge range of applications where phase stability is key has been created - HUBER+SUHNER CT product family. Along with the industry-leading phase vs. temperature performance, as well as a unique range of cable constructions to fulfill any customer demands, HUBER+SUHNER CT cables and assemblies meet all requirements in aerospace & defense, test & measurement and industrial environments.
To support emerging high-power requirements in both military and industrial applications at 13.56 MHz, 900 MHz and 2.45 GHz; IW’s 4806 and 7506SP provide a flexible, low loss/phase stable alternative to solid wall cables and waveguide. Using Expanded PTFE dielectric for extremely low loss and greater heat dissipation, 4806 has been demonstrated to out-perform other manufacturer’s products at equivalent line sizes. Customer testing has proven 4806 capable of handling 17 KW and 7506SP handling 30 KW at 13.56 MHz. Connector options include 7/16 DIN, LC, SC, C and 7/8, 1 5/8 and 3 1/8 EIA flange available.
