GaN Wideband Power Amplifier: NPA1007

GaN Wideband Power Amplifier: NPA1007

The NPA1007 is a 20 - 2500 MHz, wideband GaN power amplifier. This amplifier has output levels to 10 W (40 dBm) and is specifically designed for saturated and linear operation.

Non-Blocking RF Switch Matrix

Non-Blocking RF Switch Matrix

A non-blocking RF switch matrix is more complex than the blocking type, but it’s also more flexible.  In this configuration, an input can be switched to multiple outputs.  One input can in fact be switched to all of the outputs at once.  This provides an extra degree of flexibility compared to the blocking architecture.  However, a non-blocking architecture still has the limitation of not allowing two or more inputs to be switched to the same output.  Input 1 for example can be simultaneously switched to every output or selectively switched to several outputs at once, but no other input can be switched to any of the same outputs.

GORE-FLIGHT Microwave Assemblies

GORE-FLIGHT Microwave Assemblies

GORE-FLIGHT™ Microwave Assemblies are cable solutions designed with an internally ruggedized construction made to withstand concentrated loads well in excess of those specified by MIL-T-81490. The cables are flexible and inherently resistant to over-bending, making the cables easier to install within the confines of an aircraft. GORE-FLIGHT™ Microwave Assemblies are available in Standard Series or 6 Series.

    4G LTE Accelerates Growth of Radio Frequency Filters

    Factors driving the explosive growth of the RF filter market include crowded spectrum, explosive proliferation of frequency bands, and carrier aggregation. Thus, engineers must consider many criteria when selecting filters. 

High Power and High Efficiency Ka Band Power Amplifier

The Northrop Grumman Corporation has announced the highest power output for a single Ka-Band MMIC power amplifier ever produced to date. A team led by Salah Din recorded a peak power of 40 Watts at 27 GHz for the 27-30 GHz amplifier, with an average output power of 36 watts and a Power Added Efficiency (PAE) of greater than 30 percent across the band. The demonstration found a significant improvement in performance over current Ka-band MMIC amplifiers.

GaN Gives Power and Flexibility to L-Band Radar

Radar sales are on the rise, increasing the production of air traffic control radar systems,  and resulting in the intensified research and development on improving the performance of the L-band, which requires high pulsed power. High-power RF transistors need to be employed and GaN offers the solution. GaN is the leading semiconductor technology used in the construction of RF power transistors, enabling breakthroughs in power output capacity, temperature tolerance and efficiency.

Key Considerations for Designing a Wireless Medical Device

Mobile medical devices in today’s world require constant connectivity and security for the safety of its patients as well as for efficiency in the hospital. When considering such necessities, medical device companies need to understand that there are unique requirements to ensure the success of their WLAN deployed solution within a hospital environment. If any of these requirements are overlooked, there may be results of poor performance and potential regulator recalls.

A Step Change in Electronics Thermal Design: Incorporating ADE and MDA Design Flows

When it comes to electronics, it is important to keep the complete design cycle shorter than traditional manufacturing, as delays in product release can severely affect profit. In electronic equipment, overheating causes electronic semiconductor chips to prematurely fail, and end up disabling the entire equipment. Appropriate cooling strategies are needed to prevent overheating and failure of critical components. Mechanical engineers have collaborated with electronic designers to incorporate electronic design automation (EDA) software and mechanical design automation (MDA) software into the thermal design of electronics.
