MUST-SEE PRODUCTS AT IMS 2017

High Power RF Pin Diode Switches High Power RF Pin Diode Switches

Corry Micronics' new RF pin diode switches operate in the 1 GHz to 1.1 GHz range. The CMSW-SPDTR-1G-5K is a single-pole double-throw (SPDT) hermetically sealed reflective switch, while the CMTRSW-1G1R1G-2K5 is a high power transmit/receive (T/R) switch designed to be used in IFF applications.

0.7 - 6 GHz Solid-State Broadband Amplifier: Model 500S1G6 0.7 - 6 GHz Solid-State Broadband Amplifier: Model 500S1G6

The Model 500S1G6 from AR is a solid-state broadband amplifier that operates over the 0.7 to 6 GHz frequency range, and is designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth, high gain, and linearity are required. The low level of spurious signals and linearity of this device makes the 500S1G6 ideal for use as a driver amplifier in testing wireless and communication components and subsystems, and EMC testing applications.

YIG Frequency Synthesizer YIG Frequency Synthesizer

Leveraging a long heritage of engineering innovation in YIG and low phase noise technologies, Teledyne Microwave Solutions (TMS) has developed a brand new line of YIG synthesizers that substantially reduces the high cost of acquiring a high-quality, broadband low phase noise source. After many years of building the industry's lowest phase noise YIG Oscillators, TMS has applied that expertise to deliver on a longstanding industry aspiration for a 'Win-Win': low phase noise AND low cost in a plug n' play synthesizer solution.
