RF MILITARY ELECTRONICS FEATURED DATASHEETS

Passive Mixer (7 to 34/40 GHz): HMC774A Datasheet

The HMC774ALC3B is a general-purpose, double balanced mixer in a leadless, RoHS compliant, surface-mount package that can be used as an upconverter or downconverter between 7 GHz and 34 GHz. This mixer requires no external components or matching circuitry. The HMC774ALC3B provides excellent LO to RF and LO to IF isolation due to optimized balun structures.

Tunable Band-Pass Filter (15.1 GHz to 32 GHz): ADMV8432 Datasheet

The ADMV8432 is a monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), tunable band-pass filter that features a user selectable pass-band frequency. Additionally, this filter is used in aerospace and defense markets, including video satellite communications, test and measurement, and military radar systems.

500 MHz Bandwidth Envelope Detector: ADL6012 Datasheet

The ADL6012 is a versatile, broadband envelope detector that operates from 2 GHz to 67 GHz. The combination of a wide, 500 MHz envelope bandwidth and a fast, 0.6 ns rise time makes the device suitable for a wide range of applications, including wideband envelope tracking, transmitter local oscillator (LO) leakage corrections, and high resolution pulse (radar) detection.

50 Watts PEP, 30 - 512 MHz, Tx/Rx Booster Amplifer: AR-50 Datasheet

AR Modular RF has made significant changes to its model AR-50 automatic band-switching JITC-certified RF booster amplifier. The newly-released version of this portable. lightweight booster amplifier (designed for multi-band VHF/UHF tactical radio equipment) features an enhanced heat sink, which allows for greater heat dissipation.

  • Facts About Noise Figure In 5G And Defense Systems

    System designers are always looking for simple solutions for their complex system designs. This blog post is a practical guide to reducing design complexity while meeting those tough noise figure requirements for 5G infrastructure, defense, and aerospace applications.

  • Passive RF And Microwave Beamformer Networks
    11/12/2021

    Early beamforming network designs for antennas were typically fixed-beam architectures, although newer configurations include complex adaptive beamforming networks. This brief presentation reviews the origins of the technology, and offers several example circuit topologies of passive microwave beamformers.

  • Amplifiers To Support Software-Defined Radios
    10/29/2021

    With the help of software-based transceiver architectures, military tactical radios are taking advantage of faster, more complex waveforms with new radios supporting modern modulations and communications protocols. 

FEATURED PRODUCTS

AR Modular RF's Model AR-50 is a portable, lightweight, RF sensing, band-switching, RF booster amplifier for multi-band operation compatible with VHF/UHF/LOS/SATCOM tactical radio equipment supporting legacy, proprietary, and emerging waveforms with optional, full-duplex support for MUOS. 

The Talon RTR 2742 is a turn-key record and playback system for ultra-wideband analog RF/IF signals. Using two 12-bit, 6.4 GHz A/D converters, this system can achieve sustained recording of 2.4 GHz bandwidth signals at rates up to 6 GBytes per second.

FEKO software is a comprehensive electromagnetic (EM) analysis software suite, building on state of the art computational EM (CEM) techniques to provide users with software that can solve a wide range of electromagnetic problems.

Bird’s® ACM is the solution for monitoring your transmission/antenna systems.   The ACM works with any modulation, detects antenna and cable faults, and provides alarms for low or high power and high VSWR.  Models are available from 136 MHz to 2.4 GHz and include as standard a Push-To-Talk (PTT) input to avoid false alarm triggering when the transmitter (radio) is not keyed.   Now available with either a Serial or Ethernet interface.

Krytar manufactures microwave detectors using zero bias silicon schottky diodes and planar doped detector diodes. Testing and Term definition for performance of the two types are identical.

The SAS-521-2 is a bilogical antenna designed to provide and inexpensive solution to wideband applications ranging from 25 MHz to 2 GHz in environments from shielded enclosures to the outdoors. Suitable for FCC, MIL-STD, VDE, TEMPEST and immunity testing, the SAS-521-2 provides consistent and reliable measurements. The antenna also eliminates the need for antenna switching and therefore makes this unique hybrid a versatile performer.
