The Final Round
After I presented my position based on facts and experiments ("Feedback," March 2012), Mr.Monzello attacks again, without any facts to support his erroneous position. GPS and satellite systems all utilize superheterodyne receivers with noise figures ...
OMTs Operate Over K- and Ka-Bands
Models SAT-KB-39642-T1 and SAT-KA-25028-T1 are full-band K-band (18.0 to 26.5 GHz) and Ka-band (26.5 to 40.0 GHz) orthomode transducers (OMT), respectively. These components separate orthogonally polarized signals within the same band, allowing two ...
Tiny Amp Offers Flat Gain To 6 GHz
Based on heterojunction-bipolar-transistor (HBT) technology, model CMA-62+ is an extremely broadband amplifier, with flat gain of 15 dB (typically 15.4 dB at 2 GHz) across a frequency range of 10 MHz to 6 GHz. The gain remains flat within 0.7 dB from 50 ...
Driver Amp Serves 30 To 4000 MHz
Suitable for military communications and commercial communications infrastructure applications, model MAAM-010617 is an RF driver amplifier with a frequency range of 30 to 4000 MHz. It offers 13-dB gain over that span, with 4.5-dB noise figure. The ...
Teseq Announces IFI Acquisition
In a move intended to broaden its product line in the RF-amplifier market, Teseq has unveiled plans to acquire Ronkonkoma, NY-based Instruments for Industry (IFI). Established in 1953, IFI designs and manufactures RF and microwave, solid-state, and ...

Latest Wi-Fi Certification Rolls Out
With more than 1 billion Wi-Fi devices shipped in 2011 alone, it's indisputable that wires are ceding ground to this technology in the so-called "digital home." Indeed, ABI Research predicts annual growth rate for Wi-Fi consumer devices over the next ...
Differential DCXO Boasts Sine-Wave Outputs
To alleviate issues like spurious noise and crystal resonator harmonics, a differential digitally controlled crystal oscillator (DCXO) with sine-wave outputs may present a suitable option for cellular applications. A signal-shaping technique was recently ...
Editor's Note
While all of us at Microwaves & RF appreciate the passion Mssrs. Polivka and Monzello have brought to this debate, we must eventually free our "Feedback" section for other contributors. Hence, we invited both authors to contribute their final comments ...
Cut PIM In Cables And Connectors
Passive intermodulation (PIM) is evidence of nonlinear behavior in a communications system and some of its components. PIM is caused by the mixing of multiple tones, which results in unwanted signals. If the levels of these signals are high enough, the ...
