GaN’s Role in 5G

by Fairview Microwave The race to 5G appears to have picked up speed, particularly in the United States where major telecommunications companies such as AT&T and Verizon have made announcements to launch 5G services by the end of 2018. Advanced LTE (LTE-A) is already expanding rapidly with upgrades to current base stations (BS). Field trials […]

Coaxial RF Surge & Lightning Protectors

Forty-five new coaxial lightning and surge protectors were designed to be used in Wi-Fi networks, active antenna systems, cellular networks, GPS systems, and more. They feature VSWR as low as 1.1:1, max power as high as 2kW, multi-strike capability, and low insertion loss. Frequency range is DC to 6 GHz. FAIRVIEW MICROWAVE (4)

Portable Calibration Kits

A new line of 4-in-1 3.5mm calibration kits for cable verification, antenna measurement, and other field test and measurement applications has been launched. These integrated, short-open-load-through (SOLT) calibration kits are made up of two models that have a 26.5 GHz calibration capability. They feature a compact, lightweight, 4-in-1 design package with gold-plated, 3.5mm connectors and […]

The Long and Winding Road to High Reliability

by Fairview Microwave Although reliability engineering is a well-established discipline today, the concept itself has a long history of improvements made to ensure that electrical and electronic components are not only reliable but predictable. RF or microwave devices, subsystems, and systems have evolved in lockstep with the evolution of reliability engineering, and today even if […]

MMW Waveguide PIN Diode Switches

A new line of E- and W-band PIN diode waveguide switches is comprised of SPST and SPDT millimeter-wave waveguide switches that offer an ultra-broadband frequency range with fast switching performance. They are ideal for telecommunications, test instrumentation, R&D programs, and radar front ends in applications that involve general switching, receiver protection, pulse modulation, and antenna […]

Power Amplifier Accessories

A new family of RF and microwave power amplifier accessories includes heat sinks, heat sinks with cooling fans, and power control cable assemblies. The heat sinks in this line are ideal for thermal management of power amplifiers that can generate excessive levels of heat, and the power control cable assemblies are configured for select power […]
