New 16-Channel ADC for Phased Array Radar Applications

The AD9083 is a 16-channel, 125 MHz bandwidth continuous time sigma delta analog-to-digital converter with a best-in-class power consumption of 0.09 W per channel. The integrated digital signal processing, on-chip PLL, flexible JESD204B interface and compact 9 x 9 mm package make it an ideal solution for large, phased array radar and digital beamforming applications where phase-coherent multi-chip synchronization is critical.

Wideband and Compact-Size Frequency Synthesizer up to 22 GHz

AnaPico Switzerland recently introduced a new, compact-size broadband frequency synthesizer for the generation of accurate and stable signal in both CW and pulse form, covering a frequency range of 100 kHz to 22 GHz, with a fast-switching time of about 10 us, the output power of -20 to 25 dBm. The phase noise at 1 GHz and 20 kHz offset is -131 dBc/Hz. Multiple units can be connected together for phase-coherent channels.

3D Printed Components

In April, CAES opened a state-of-the-art Additive Manufacturing Lab in Exeter, N.H., focused on making space-ready 3D printed components. The lab supports CAES’ partnership with SWISSto12, the leading provider of 3D printed technology for RF applications, and is dedicated to bringing additive manufacturing solutions to the U.S. aerospace and defense industry. “This flight proven technology will allow us to rapidly go from design to manufacturing with much more complex components,” said CAES CEO Mike Kahn.
