Group Delay/Phase Equalizer
Do you ever have too much group delay variation in your passband? Exceed Microwave’s waveguide group delay equalizer can distort the group delay with minimum impact on the amplitude. Provide us with the shape of your current group delay and we will inversely match the shape to help flatten out the overall group delay response.
High Frequency Bends, Twists and Straight Sections
Fairview Microwave Inc. has introduced a new line of waveguide transmission components that are ideal for radar, satellite communication and airport security system applications. Fairview’s new waveguide bends, twists and straight sections feature high frequency ranges from 90 to 220 GHz in three waveguide bands. These include waveguide sizes of WR-8, WR-6 and WR-5 and UG-387/U mod round cover style flanges.
Metropole Products Inc.
Upgrade your legacy UHF SATCOM to include MUOS, with the FMA-123. This compact unit has performance compatible with MUOS requirements, proven both in field and shipboard operations. Metropole also offers a host of other MUOS compatible units, to include low noise amplifiers, bandpass filters and diplexer/preamplifiers, just to name a few. Metropole Products can help you incorporate MUOS into your system.
Two Way Splitter
Featuring 1.8 GHz bandwidth and a minimum 30 dB isolation for 75 ohm applications with low insertion loss, this low cost miniature component splits/ combines RF wideband signals while maintaining high RF performance. MiniRF offers highly repeatable performance with a low cost, surface mount component. These parts designed to operate over extreme temperature range -40° to 85°C with minimal variation. Do not delay and have mismatched signals in your circuit, contact us or RFMW for evaluation samples and support.
Narda Safety Test Solutions
Real Time Receiver
When connected to Narda’s powerful real time receiver SignalShark, the ADFA 2 can precisely and reliably localize signals between 10 MHz and 8 GHz. This newly developed automatic DF antenna delivers extraordinarily stable measurement results in milliseconds. Additionally, it is insensitive to reflections. Its wide frequency range means that direction finding at low and high frequencies is covered equally. This makes the ADFA 2 particularly interesting for use by mobile network providers and regulatory authorities, as well as for military applications.
RFE Inc. has designed a convenient, cost-effective solution for translating 51 to 59 GHz signals into the 10 to 160 MHz domain. The incoming signals are converted to the IF Band using double-sided down-conversion. The down-converter can be tuned to any input center frequency in the range of 51 to 59 GHz by changing the mixer LO frequency from 12.75 to 14.75 GHz.
Sanan Integrated Circuits
High-Performance GaAs Technology
New to Sanan IC’s P15 family of high-performance 6” GaAs PHEMT foundry technologies, the P15EP1 is integrated with 0.15 μm gate length E-mode transistors (85 GHz FT, 155 GHz Fmax) for mmWave and 0.5 μm E-mode/D-mode devices for single-die logic implementation. Sanan IC also launched a family of GaAs PIN diodes, including the PINAB11 which features a 1.2 μm I-layer and 4 μm air bridge, and the polyimide-based PINPI11, a 3 μm I-layer suitable for RF switches and broadband limiters.
Spinner GmbH’s new splitters and tappers have all of the ports in the same axis. This lets them be easily and securely installed in limited space. Finally, an end to symmetrical splitters with ports pointing in up to five different directions. More than anything, these splitters are characterized by compactness. They are significantly smaller than similar assemblies, making them easy to install in narrow conduits. Like their larger cousins, they support frequencies up to 3800 MHz and their power ratings are also respectable at up to 300 W.
Wright Technologies’ improved broadband LNA Models ASL18B and ASL20B are 1 to 18 GHz, and 1 to 20 GHz LNA’s that offer great broadband noise figures. The typical noise figure is below 2 dB while the maximum measured noise figures are at 2.5 dB and below. The available gain blocks are +25 dB at 120 ma. and +40 dB at 180 ma. The output P1dB is +17 dBm minimum and +19 dBm typical. The 3KK package dimensions are small and robust for a compact LNA.
