Beamformer and IF Up-/Down- Converter ICs
Anokiwave Inc. introduced its fourth generation high efficiency multi-band Si IC family. The new IC family greatly pushes the levels of performance and cost to a point where network operators can start to accelerate the builds of greener, lower cost and smaller form factor mmWave 5G radios, for every 3GPP FR2 band. The ICs in this family are the 24 to 30 GHz AWMF-0221, a dual-quad channel, dual polarization beamforming IC and the AWMF-0210, a wideband IF up-/down-converter IC.
Waveguide Pressure Windows
Fairview Microwave’s new series of Waveguide Pressure Windows, in stock and available for same-day shipping, are ideal for sealing and isolating pressurized components from non-pressurized components within a waveguide system. These Waveguide Pressure Windows provide protection against contaminants such as debris, moisture and dust entering your waveguide system and degrading its RF performance. They are manufactured to endure applications found in the most demanding environments.
DC to 70 GHz, 1 W, 50 Ω, 1.85 mm Termination
MIcable TM01-185MH ultra-wideband 50 Ω termination is built up with 1.85 mm high precision male connector and firm stainless steel configuration. They have excellent VSWR 1.5: 1 maximum over the DC to 70 GHz frequency range which can absorb up to 1 W CW power. The rugged configuration gives the unit an extended life of use.

Wi-Fi 6 FEM
RFMW announces design and sales support for a Wi-Fi (802.11n-ax) front-end module (FEM). The Qorvo QPF4216B FEM delivers higher power and better throughput in Wi-Fi 802.11ax systems than competing devices. Integrated matching minimizes layout area and the device is pinned out so external filtering can be added in the optimal position. Performance features include 22 dBm Pout (at -43 dB DEVM) and 26 dBm Pout (at MCSO HT20). Transmit gain is 32 dB while receive noise figure is 1.8 dB. 5 GHz signals are filtered with 15 dB rejection.
SP9T/SP10T Higher Power Handling Switch
RLC Electronics Inc. has recently launched a new SP9T/SP10T higher power handling switch series. These switches operate from DC to 6 GHz (minimum) and will handle upwards of 150 W cW (previous designs limited power to 75 W cW). Units exhibit low loss (0.25 dB), high isolation (> 70 dB) and are designed to operate in severe environmental conditions. Switch to RLC for your Electro-Mechanical switch needs, from DC-65 GHz, SP2T-SP12T.
