Isola Shows Halogen-Free PCBs at DesignCon 2023

Isola Group, a global leader in advanced circuit materials for printed-circuit boards (PCBs), is inviting exhibition visitors to learn more about halogen-free PCBs at DesignCon 2023. Visitors to Isola’s exhibition Booth 627 can discover how unmatched [AI1] levels of electrical performance are possible with a new trio of halogen-free circuit materials. DesignCon 2023, scheduled for January […]

Low-noise Amplifier

The PE2-20-1G40G-5R5-15-12-292FF low-noise amplifier operates between 1 and 40 GHz with gain of at least 20 dB +/-2.5 dB. Its noise figure is 4 dB, VSWR is 2.5:1, output P1dB RF power is 15 dBm, and maximum input power is 17 dB. The amplifier is housed in an enclosure that can be used as a […]

Cascade Analysis Platform for RF System Design

The RF Graph cascaded analysis software platform allows designers to drop generic or custom symbols on a canvas and connect them like a schematic capture tool. The design is stored in a cloud data center and can be easily shared with others or exported to a PDF file for inclusion in presentations and white papers. […]

Varactor Model Library

Tecdia’s HBCR22AY20X10X5A02 and HBC2R2KY20X10X5A02 varactors are now available in the COMPLETE Library™ as well as the Modelithics millimeter-wave and 5G Library. The surface-mount dielectric varactors use a voltage-controllable dielectric and can control impedance for applications including tunable phase shifters, tunable matching networks, tunable filters, and voltage-controlled oscillators.

PkZ Blind Mate Connector

The PkZ blind-mate microwave contact overcomes mating challenges resulting from tolerance stack-up in multiport applications. PkZ technology supports many cable types and termination styles with accommodations for contact housings and consistent performance to 40 GHz. PHOENIX COMPANY OF CHICAGO (8)

40 GHz Notch Filters

These notch filters operate from 10 MHz to 40 GHz and are available in multiple topologies. The filters are available in compact sizes and are designed to operate in severe military environmental conditions. Insertion is loss is less than 1dB and VSWR is less than 1.5:1. RLC ELECTRONICS (8)

High-power Switches

These switches are designed for high reliability in test-and-measurement applications and include models with hot switching for passing back and forth between components without disrupting device performance. They have power handling up to 200 W and a switching speed of 40 µs. PASTERNACK (6)

Peak Power Meters: Essential Instruments for Radar Power Amplifier Measurements

by Wireless Telecom Group The pulsed signals of radar systems present unique measurement and characterization challenges as their signals may only be “on” for a short time, followed by a long “off” period. During the “on” time, the system transmits high levels of RF power that can overstress power amplifiers during both on/off transitions and […]

SMA Connectors for Automotive Applications

This extension to this SMA connector portfolio is focused on automotive applications such as infotainment, GPS and satellite radio and supports flexible RTK-044 cable. The connectors are available in a rear-mounted bulkhead jack and right-angle plug. The jacks have gold-plated brass bodies and gold-plated beryllium copper contacts, and the plug is nickel-plated brass with gold-plated […]

8-in-1 Antenna

The Guardian MA990 8-in-1 antenna allows GNSS and 5G/4G operation while maintaining compatibility with next-generation modules and routers. Its low profile makes it suitable for IoT and automotive applications where space is at a premium and is designed to meet the needs of 5G bands such as MIMO and MIMO 4 from 600 MHz to […]
