Teledyne e2v HiRel, part of the Teledyne Defense Electronics Group, announced the latest addition to its rapidly expanding line of RF solutions, a new RF MMIC Frequency Doubler.

Launching Teledyne e2v HiRel’s new frequency multiplier product line, this active doubler, TDFM001000, is designed for high reliability signal chain applications in space. It is particularly well-suited specifically for satellite transponders, transmit/receive modules, microwave-based communications, millimeter-wave point-to-point radio and related processes.

TDFM001000 is a 7.5 to 25 GHz/15 to 50 GHz single ended input (no external balun required) GaAs MMIC Doubler with a +15.0 dBm output drive. It is an excellent LO Doubler that can be used to drive fundamental mixer devices. It uses a GaAs PHEMT device model technology and is based upon electron beam lithography to ensure high repeatability and uniformity.

“This is the first Frequency Multiplier released by Teledyne e2v HiRel Electronics and is the latest addition to our rapidly growing portfolio of high reliability RF solutions for aerospace and defense,” said Mont Taylor, vice president of Business Development for Teledyne e2v HiRel Electronics. “We will be introducing several new standard RF building block solutions in the months ahead to supplement our other lines including amplifiers, LNAs, PAs, DVGAs, DSAs, Limiters, Mixers, Prescalers, PLLs, Switches and more.”

Other key features include:
• Single Ended Input Doubler with Distributed Buffer Amplifier
• 100 percent On-Wafer RF, dc and Output Power Testing
• 100 percent Visual Inspection to MIL-STD-883 Method 2010
• RoHS Compliant
• 260°C Reflow Compatible

• Excellent Broadband Mixer Driver
• Excellent LO Driver for Receivers

The TDFM001000 is available to order now, with shipments beginning in October.
