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.
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.
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.
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.
