  • Power Handling Considerations for SMD Terminations, Attenuators, and Resistors

    Power ratings for Anaren’s SMD Terminations, Attenuators, and Resistors are based off of the temperature at the solder interface where the solder is in contact with the SMD components. This application note describes the power rating of high power surface mount resistive products, as well as techniques for maximizing power handling performance of these products.

Antenna Switches for Carrier Aggregation

Antenna Switches for Carrier Aggregation

Smartphone users have challenged (and will continue to challenge) mobile networks with the increased amounts of data they download. Though the wireless spectrum is vast, it’s still limited in its availability. Carrier aggregation is a technique that uses two or more bands at the same time to combine spectrum and increase data throughput, giving smartphone users a better data experience. Skyworks recently released two new antenna switches for use in carrier aggregation applications.

Low Profile OCXO and OCVCXO: N45/NV45 AA/AB Series

Low Profile OCXO and OCVCXO: N45/NV45 AA/AB Series

This series of OCXO cover the 5MHz to 20MHz frequency range.  It is ideal for low phase noise and excellent frequency stability applications including base stations, synthesizers, digital switching, test equipment and military.

Multiplexer for Radar, EW, and ELINT: NF29525

Multiplexer for Radar, EW, and ELINT: NF29525

The NF29525 is a multiplexer with an integrated low noise amplifier. It covers the 2 to 18 GHz frequency range and has been specifically designed for agile receiver front ends and directional finding systems.

Single Control SP2T RF Switch: SKY13453-385LF

Single Control SP2T RF Switch: SKY13453-385LF

This single-pole, double-throw switch covers the 0.01 to 6.0 GHz frequency range and features low insertion loss (0.40 dB @ 2.0 GHz), high isolation (>25 dB @ 2.0 GHz), and single bit control. It’s been designed for mode switching in cellular pre-power amplifier applications or dual-band WLAN (802.11a/b/g/n) applications.

OCXO for IEEE 1588v2 Applications

OCXO for IEEE 1588v2 Applications

To handle the increase in mobile traffic driven by smart phones, tablets and increasing video streams, carriers are switching to Synchronous Ethernet. The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and IEEE created Sync E and IEEE 1588v2  timing standards to insure interoperability in this new packet-based network. MtronPTI’s XO5x84-1588-R Series OCXO (Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator) is specifically designed and tested for Sync E and 1588v2, has very low wander generation and is available in 10 MHz, 12.8 MHz and 20 MHz versions.

Low-G Sensitivity OCXO for Radar, SATCOM, and Portable Instrumentation: XO5500 Series

Low-G Sensitivity OCXO for Radar, SATCOM, and Portable Instrumentation: XO5500 Series

Whether flying at 40,000’ watching videos online or at 500’ watching over-the-hill radar, it’s the picture that counts not the display. And vibration from rotary wing engines, weapons fire or simple high altitude turbulence can blur radar images or cause satellite links to loose lock breaking your focus.

Space Level TCXOs and OCXOs

Space Level TCXOs and OCXOs

Bliley’s line of space level TCXOs and OCXOs have been used in commercial and defense environments, as well as in-orbit space missions with a life of 20 years. They’re ideal for applications involving beacons, navigation, master clock references (MDS reference), radar, and Ka, Ku, and C bands.

SP3T RF Switch: SKY13373-460LF

SP3T RF Switch: SKY13373-460LF

This single-pole, triple-throw (SP3T) switch operates in the 0.1-3.5 GHz range and is ideal for WCDMA band and mode switching, antenna switch for multimode systems, and 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN applications. This switch features low insertion loss, high isolation, and positive low voltage control. Additionally, no external DC blocking capacitors are required. The SKY13373-460LF SP3T RF Switch is an ideal choice for WCDMA handset and data card applications.
