Pasternack has unveiled a line of compact waveguide Gunn diode oscillators that are tunable and generate signal levels that exhibit low phase noise at popular K and Ka band frequencies. Gunn diode oscillators incorporate high performance devices and machined aluminum cavities. These oscillators exhibit excellent frequency and power stability, lower phase noise and higher anti-load pulling characteristics.
Pasternack has launched a line of low-PIM, plenum-rated SPP-250-LLPL cable assemblies for use in wireless infrastructure. Typical applications include distributed antenna systems (DAS), indoor wireless systems, multi-carrier communication systems and PIM testing. Pasternack’s 36 low-PIM jumper cables are made with UL910 plenum-rated SPP-250-LLPL cable and feature a maximum PIM level of -155 dBc.
Pasternack has released a series of RF and microwave power amplifier accessories that includes heat sinks, heat sinks with cooling fans and power control cable assemblies. Heat sinks are devices that enhance heat dissipation from a hot surface and are ideal for thermal management of power amplifiers in test and measurement applications. A functioning power amplifier will generate elevated levels of heat that needs to be properly dissipated.
Pasternack has introduced 28 waveguide electromechanical relay switches that offer full waveguide performance covering C, X, Ku, K and Ka frequency bands from 5.85 to 40 GHz. They are ideal for applications that include electronic warfare, electronic countermeasures, microwave radio, VSAT, SATCOM, radar, research and development, space systems and test instrumentation.
Pasternack launched a complete millimeter wave transmitter module for developing multi-Gbps, high speed, point-to-point wireless communication links. The PEM010 operates in the global unlicensed frequency spectrum from 57.0 to 64.8 GHz and supports the IEEE 802.11ad and 802.11aj Wi-Fi protocols for wireless networking.
