Leading provider of wireless base station enhancement products, Communications Components Inc. (CCI), has now launched its PiMPro family of analyzers in EMEA, which enable mobile network operators (MNOs) to remove the adverse affects of Passive Intermodulation (PIM) – a form of interference - from their networks, and prevent it from damaging quality of service (QoS) and customer experience.
Pickering Interfaces is expanding its range of PXI Fault Insertion solutions with the introduction of the 40-197 and the 40-198. Fault Insertion (FI) modules are used within an Automatic Test System to simulate common fault conditions such as an open, short to ground or a short to other connections in a device under test.
RADITEK’s latest YIG Tuned Band-pass Filter, RYBPF-2-6-200M-Sf-24V-nd-i3, is a new leading edge YIG based 2 to 6 GHz filter product. It is in high demand due to its superior 200 MHz pass band, (even at 2GHz).
Our newest model, RCTRIP-902-1805-2100M-Nf-100W-k, CH1 902~960MHz, CH2 1805~1880MHz and CH3 2110~2170MHz operate with an Insertion Loss of 0.5dB maximum and a Return Loss of 18dB minimum and 100 Watts of Input power with N-Type Female Connectors.
RADITEK’s 1 kilowatt High Power Stripline Drop-In Circulator operating from 430-860MHz in 20MHz Bandwidth segments. The above model RADC-490-510M-TTT-1kWR-b has 3.2mm Stripline Tab connectors and 1kilowatt of RF power handling.
RADITEK’s Octave Plus Circulators are a cost effective solution for wide band frequency applications. This model covers 1.0-2.5 GHz with 50 Watts Average Forward and Reverse Power. Additional Reverse Power Options available are: 1, 5, 10, 20, 25 and 100 Watts
Return to Zero is a funny comic strip for engineers, with lab humor, odd situations, and exploding circuits that of course makes a sport out of solving the trickiest of engineering problems.
Crystek's CVCOT8BE-2700-3400 TO-8 VCO operates from 2700 MHz to 3400 MHz and provides high-performance frequency control in harsh, demanding environments.
Spectrum Advanced Specialty Products announces a new ruggedly constructed USB connector, featuring an enhanced design that meets MIL immersion and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) seal requirements. Able to connect to USB 2.0 or 1.1 ports, the heavy-duty design of the USB connector is ideal for demanding, high stress applications.
In the will of continuous customer support, Premo has introduced a new series of Hall Effect sensors called DSR5 series. A new series designed for a single supply voltage of +5V. DSR5 family is a close loop technology component in a very small package for THT mounting. Primary winding is already integrated, which allows to measure DC, AC and pulse currents on printed circuit boards.
Antenna Factor is pleased to announce that the HW Series antenna is now available in 1.4GHz. The HW Series 1/2-wave center-fed dipole antenna delivers outstanding performance in a rugged and cosmetically attractive package.
Test grade cables are a must for RF applications. The test cables serve as the extension of the equipments’ test ports, made by RF Precision Products.
TriQuint Semiconductor has released four new linear low noise amplifiers (LNAs) that eliminate matching components in a wide range of high-performance broadband applications including 3G/4G base station networks.
Lauren Sommer wrote a great blog over the weekend about how supercomputers have hit the “energy wall” – a decidedly real supercomputing problem...
