Fixed Attenuators

A new line of quick connect attenuators is made up of 31 models that support operating frequency ranges from DC to 6 GHz. These attenuators are available with QMA, QN, or 4.3-10 connectors for easy mating. They feature VSWR as low as 1.15:1 and attenuation values from 0 to 20 dB. The 4.3-10 attenuator models […]

Millimeter-Wave End Launch Connectors

A new line of high-speed end launch connectors is comprised of four models that provide VSWR as low as 1.10:1 and a maximum operating frequency of 40 to 110 GHz, depending on the model. These connectors are reusable, do not require any soldering, and have a compact profile with a 0.350” mounting width and a […]

Connectors Keep Pace with Millimeter-Wave Advances

by  Fairview Microwave The spectral region above about 30 GHz hasn’t been densely populated, or at some frequencies, populated at all. There are well known reasons for this, from inhospitable propagation conditions to the lack of useful semiconductor technologies, and the fact that it’s extremely difficult to build components and systems when wavelengths are measured […]

Calibrated Noise Sources

Ten new calibrated noise source models cover frequency bands from 10 KHz to 18 GHz. They are most commonly used as a precision reference source to measure system level noise figure. Specific applications may involve increasing the dynamic range of analog to digital converters by dithering and reducing correlated noise, system, and component wireless testing; […]

Electromechanical Switches Designed for High Reliability

A new series of low insertion loss repeatability electromechanical switches exhibit low insertion loss repeatability guaranteed over millions of switching cycles. This performance is extremely useful to help maintain overall system measurement accuracy. Typical applications for these switches include test instrumentation, research and development, electronic countermeasures, electronic warfare, microwave radio, space systems, and radar. These […]

There’s No End in Sight for Waveguide

by Steven Pong, Product Manager, Fairview Microwave The RF and microwave industry may be awash in chipsets, but less flashy components still make up a sizeable portion of the market, and there’s no better example than waveguide. Considered archaic “plumbing” even by many microwave engineers, waveguide’s advantages still make it the best and sometimes only […]

Bandpass and Low Pass Filters

Thirteen new SMA coaxial filters include seven bandpass filters and six low pass filters. The bandpass filters are ideal for various applications including GPS, ISM, RFID, and Wi-Fi systems, and operate in several bands. The low pass filters allow for tailoring of the test setup for a specific application and support upper band edges of […]

Waveguide to Coax Adapters

A new series of waveguide to coax adapters covers a frequency range of 1.7 to 110 GHz in 22 waveguide bands. The line consists of 77 models in sizes of WR-10 to WR-430. These adapters are offered in a wide selection of waveguide flanges, sizes, and materials. They support 10 types of coax connectors and […]

Low-PIM Cable Assemblies

A new line of low-PIM, plenum-rated SPP-250-LLPL cable assemblies is designed for use in wireless infrastructure. These 36 low-PIM jumper cables feature a maximum PIM level of -155 dBc and are made with UL910 plenum-rated SPP-250-LLPL cable. Maximum operating frequency is 6 GHz. FAIRVIEW MICROWAVE (4)

PLL Synthesizers in Coaxial Packages

Six new PLL frequency synthesizer models are compact, rugged, SMA-connectorized designs that support USB 2.0 interface with a PC computer supplying DC power and GUI command control. They cover a broad range of frequency bands from 25 MHz to 27 GHz. RoHS and Reach compliant. FAIRVIEW MICROWAVE (8)
