Integrated Microwave Assemblies (IMAs)Source: Communications & Power Industries, Beverly Microwave Division
CPI’s line of integrated microwave assemblies includes attenuators, integrated front ends, receivers, solid state coaxial limiters, solid state switches, waveguide limiters, transmit receiver switches, upconverters, and downconverters. They’re used in both military and commercial markets in radar, satellite, and communications applications. This page provides an overview of their IMA offerings.
These attenuators are available for operation in L, S, C, X, Ku, and Ka bands. They feature low insertion loss, a fast switching time, digital/analog control options, and linearized RF attenuation.
Integrated front ends by CPI offer a low noise figure and high power handling capabilities. Several different models are available with varying frequencies, gain, output power, and more.
CPI’s receivers offer fast recovery time, low noise figures, a very high dynamic range, linearized RF attenuation, and more. They’ve available for operation in L, S, C, X, Ku, and Ka bands.
These solid state coaxial limiters are compact and inexpensive. They feature low loss and are available from UHF to the Ka-Band.
CPI’s solid state switches are available in both waveguide and coax configurations, as well as SPST, SPDT, and SPMT (single pole multiple throw) configurations. They’re also available from UHF to the Ka-Band.
These waveguide limiters are available for operation in the S, C, X, Ku, and Ka-Bands. They feature high power handling and low leakage.
Transmit receive switches by CPI are available from the VHF to Ku-Band. Like the limiters, they feature high power handling and low leakage.
These upconverters and downconverters feature gain control, high spurious rejection, RF gating capabilities, and an adjustable filter bandwidth. Available frequencies include L, S, C, X, Ku, and Ka bands.
