GaN Amplifier Boosts 6 To 18 GHz
Model AML618P4015 is a gallium-nitride (GaN) power amplifier designed to provide 20 W output power from 6 to 18 GHz. The high-power-density amplifier achieves power-added efficiency (PAE) of typically 12% in a package measuring just 2.45 x 2.09 x 0.41 ...
Modules Meld Multithrow Switches
Multithrow switches can channel signals to their proper destinations in a design, whether in a commercial communications system or in a military radar. Fortunately, some suppliers offer a variety of different switch configurations in modular formats, so ...
Solid-State Source Tunes From 2.48 To 2.75 THz
Terahertz communications offers great potential for high-data-rate communications over short distances. But the 2-to-3-THz frequency range has long been considered a "terahertz gap" region: too high for purely electronic devices and too low for photonic ...
Synthesizers Shave Size And Noise
These synthesizers enlist DDS technology in combination with a VCO to achieve low phase noise and excellent spurious performancedoing so at a fraction of the size and cost of conventional PLL synthesizers.
Adapter Kit Makes Connections To 34 GHz
The P2RFA-4031-01 adapter kit from RF Industries provides three 3.5-mm precision adapters in a compact, foam-lined, zippered case. All three adapters are designed for 50-O use and are formed of non-magnetic 303 stainless steel with beryllium copper ...
GaN-on-SiC Device Hoists 40 W at 3 GHz
Model XPT1015 is a +28-VDC GaN-on-silicon high-electronic-mobility-transistor (HEMT) power transistor from Nitronex Corp. capable of 40-W output power from DC to 2.5 GHz. The transistor, which is ideal for commercial, industrial, and military markets, ...
QI standard Extends Charging Distance
The open Qi wireless-charging standard is still evolving. For instance, the Wireless Power Consortium regularly approves new transmitter designs that are proposed by its members. By using magnetic-resonance technology, the latest approved transmitter ...
Fresh Starts
Mini-CircuitsHas expanded its global distribution network to India with the launch of TejasRF.com. The site gives consumers access to Mini-Circuits' entire catalog of RF/IF and microwave products. It offers nominal factory prices in local currency, in ...
SCRLH Resonators Power UWB Divider
The use of tunable resonator circuits can provide selective rejection of unwanted signals within the ultrawideband (UWB) frequency range of a two-way power divider.
Wireless System Assists Libraries
Through the use of RFID tags placed in books and a reader mounted in a central counter, this system allows wireless, hands-free check-in and check-out of library books.
Optimizing PLL Performance Levels Part 2
Designing a PLL synthesizer for modern mobile communications systems involves achieving the proper balance among a number of tradeoffs, including spurious levels and frequency switching speed.
Editor's Note
Apologies to all of our friends at Mini-Circuits for the omission of the company name from the front cover, as well as from the first figure of the Cover Feature article. Although the company name was not on the front cover, it did appear within the ...
Low-Power Mixer Hits High Intercept
Fabricated with 0.18-m RF CMOS technology, this downconversion mixer uses a current-reuse bleeding technique to achieve high linearity, while consuming only 6 mW from a +1.2-VDC supply.
Explore WLAN Systems At 60 GHz
Wireless-local-area-network (WLAN) services have become vital to many users. Many businesses, such as transportation companies and restaurants, often tout their free WLAN services to lure new customers. While the most familiar WLAN services take place ...
Industry Players Support MDA Summer Camp
Drawing attention to an indisputably worthy cause, ITT Interconnect Solutions has joined with PEI-Genesis and Avnet to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Las Vegas (MDA) summer camp program. This nationwide initiative enables children fighting ...
