Electromechanical Switches

Twelve new models of electromechanical switches cover broadband frequencies from DC to 40 GHz. They exhibit very low insertion loss repeatability with guaranteed levels of 0.03 to 0.05 dB over 5 to 10 million switching cycles, depending on the model. The switches are offered in three configurations: SPDT, SP4T, and SP6T. They are designed with […]

Low-PIM Plenum-Rated Cable Assemblies

A new line of low-PIM, plenum-rated SPP-250-LLPL cable assemblies was designed for use in wireless infrastructure. The 36 new low-PIM jumper cables are made with UL910 plenum-rated SPP-250-LLPL cable and feature a maximum PIM level of -155 dBc. They deliver a maximum operating frequency of 6 GHz and a maximum VSWR of 1.25:1 up to […]

Relay Controlled Programmable Attenuators

These new relay controlled programmable attenuators offer accurate and stable performance with very low harmonic distortion (IMD) and cover multiple RF frequency bands down to DC. They are popular for use in military and commercial satellite and ground communication systems, cable modem and cellular telephone testing, radar, telecommunications, and automatic test equipment (ATE). Six models […]

An Overview of Antenna Systems in Millimeter-Wave Radar Applications

by Pasternack Millimeter-wave (mm-wave) technology is playing a central role in next generation radar and wireless communications. With the already massive demand for spectrum space in the 2.4/5 GHz bands, the Ka-Band and beyond provide expansive spectrum availability and flexibility. Already implemented in automotive and many security applications, mm-wave imaging radar enables self-driving and nearly […]

Free-Running Reference Oscillators

Six new free-running reference oscillators generate a highly stable and accurate output frequency response with low phase noise and spurious performance levels, making them ideal in phase locked loops, function generators, frequency synthesizers and receivers for communication, radar, navigation, surveillance, and test and measurement applications. These free-running, fixed-tuned oscillators use a high-stability internal crystal reference […]

Waveguide Phase Shifters

This new series of waveguide phase shifters is comprised of seven models that operate in the frequency range of 18 to 110 GHz and in seven waveguide bands from K to W band. They provide phase shift range from 0 to 180º and 1 dB maximum insertion loss. Ideal for aerospace, defense, telecom, and more. […]
