C-Band Filter

MCV Microwave introduces MCV Blue, a C-Band filter for protection against 5G and terrestrial interference. The filter passes from 4000 to 4200 MHz while providing outstanding rejection both below and above the passband. The filter exhibits very low insertion loss while maintaining a compact size. It is easily installed between the feed and LNB for new and existing installations. The filter is environmentally sealed and moisture resistant (IP66).

Step Attenuators

Pasternack has expanded its portfolio of step attenuators for use in high-reliability applications requiring precise control of signal levels, including precision measurements, prototyping and characterization product systems and instrumentation. They feature a maximum VSWR of 1.4:1, a maximum insertion loss of 1 dB and attenuation accuracy of ±5 dB, making them well-suited for high-reliability applications requiring accurate control of attenuation values. Additional performance characteristics include high power and wide coverage with a 2 W power rating and an operating frequency range up to 18 GHz.

Band Reject (Notch) Filters

RLC Electronics has introduced higher frequency band reject (notch) filters, designed to operate over the frequency range of .01 to 40 GHz. These filters are characterized by having the reverse properties of bandpass filters and are offered in multiple topologies. The filters are available in compact sizes and are constructed to operate over the most severe military environmental conditions. Filters are tailored to specific customer needs (electrical, mechanical and environmental), with insertion loss typically less than 1 dB and VSWR less than 1.5:1.

CABLES & CONNECTORS

Field-Replaceable Connectors

Fairview Microwave has introduced a new series of field-replaceable connectors designed for a variety of RF/microwave applications. Fairview’s new series of field-replaceable connectors allows for easy replacement of damaged connectors without needing to access sealed components. The connectors’ EMI gaskets protect the internal parts of devices from electromagnetic interference. These field-replaceable connectors offer frequency coverage up to 65 GHz and feature 1.85, 2.4, 2.92 mm and SMA connectors. Contacts for the connectors mate with five-pin diameters ranging from 0.009” to 0.036”.

The EESeal+®

Meet the newest addition to the EESeal® family of EMI filter connector inserts: the EESeal+. Achieve enhanced filtering for demanding high frequency requirements (up to 20 to 40 GHz) and greater attenuation needs (up to 45 to 50 dB). The EESeal+ utilizes conductive silicone rubber to provide an extremely low inductance ground plane. Like the original EESeal, it can be installed in seconds, maintains the environmental seal of the host connector and is proven against MIL-STD and DO-160 requirements.
