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.

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.

The ADRF5740 from Analog Devices is a Silicon Digital Attenuator. General applications include industrial scanners, test and measurement, cellular infrastructure, and more. 

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.

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.

Qorvo offers the QPM2100 GaAs multi-chip module (MCM) ideally designed for S-band electronic warfare, communications, and radar applications in the 2.5 – 40 GHz frequency range. This device comprises a transmit/receive (T/R) switch, a low loss transmit path, and received path consisting of a low-noise amplifier, a digital attenuator, and a driver amplifier.

Design engineers are constantly trying to minimize space in creating smaller more efficient products.  Corry Micronics’ new Micro Spanner EMI Filter matches the smallest size chassis-mounted feedthrough the industry has ever seen.  The FT40 spanner bushing filter offers a miniature diameter of 0.071”and is the optimal form factor for designs that demand efficiency in a compact footprint.  Corry’s Micro Spanner is offered in a “C” filter configuration and provides capacitance from 10 pF to 5000 pF.
